We can’t wait to come back and do it again!

This sailing excursion, with Capt Dan, ended up being the best part of our trip to Fort Lauderdale! We had an amazing time and everything was perfect. The weather was great and we had such a relaxing time, that we can’t wait to come back next year and do it again.

Lea, I am glad that you and your family enjoyed the day on the water. It was a good sail and swim. For a day forecasted to rain the weather was good. We hope to see you again. Fair Winds, Captain Dan

Just Do It

Captain Dan and the wind pirate was a perfect day. Everything you could want to relax and enjoy pretty much whatever you wanted to do. Freedom to bring your own food and drinks and easy conversation. The bean bags as you motor out the channel taking in all the houses, mansions, with champagne. just perfect. Later in the day...the fishing happened. Oh man. All around perfect and I love that you literally leave from their personal dock. Very clean and safe.

Carol and Jay, We had a full day sailing and the 20 lb catch was sure a fighter.Was hoping for a posted picture.We have had 2 meals and 4 to go.It sure was tasty. Fair Winds, Captain Dan
Wonderful way to spend a day in South Florida!

We couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend our last day of family vacation. Every one of our children (ages 16-21) had a blast and Captain Dan even allowed one to “drive” for a while. She really enjoyed that part! Especially since her brothers didn’t seem to take to it as easily. First time snorkeling for some of the kids made it even more memorable. Everything went flawlessly and it is clear that you are in good hands for the entirety of the trip. The the entire crew of our blended family agreed this was the highlight of our trip! I could see this being perfect for a group of friends as well. Excellent value for our $$, too!
Sailing in the ocean

I highly recommend Captain Dan’s sailboat excursion. It was the highlight of our Fort Lauderdale trip. After our safety briefing our private party of 5, we stowed our snacks and refreshments in the galley and cast off the dock. We started motoring for about 30 minutes through the winding river and canals making our way to the warm ocean. It was a relaxing trip as some of us hung out in the cockpit and others relaxed in Captain Dan’s oversized bean-bag chairs strategically placed on the deck near the bow. It gave everyone a chance to see the sites including countless yachts, boaters and numerous drawbridges that rose at the Captain’s request. When we reached the ocean, the captain raised the sails and cut the engine as the Jenneau 42 began gliding across the waves. It was a great experience as some of us helped with tacking and pulling in the sheets. When we reached our sea destination Captain Dan slowed the yacht where the water was warm, crystal clear and about 25 feet deep. We eagerly entered the water, some of us with floaties, others with snorkles (provided by the Captain) while others just drifted lazily from a tether. Later as we made our way back, we all took our positions while snacking and enjoying some adult beverages. Once again, we took in the sites as we made our way back. Wow – you have to try this!

I had surprised my daughter for her birthday with this excursion. She loves boat rides but had never been on a sailboat. Dan & Tracy were so welcoming, and we really enjoyed the sights. Nothing like relaxing on beanbag chairs while taking in the views! Totally recommend!
