    Capt Alberto and his lovely wife Grace were awesome! We stayed for a short weekend in Baltimore but really wanted to see the Chesapeake from the water since we're avid lake boaters back home. Capt Alberto and Grace made us feel right at home as soon as we boarded. We set out for an evening sail and they took us around downtown Annapolis and all the way to the bay bridge and back. Capt Alberto did such a good job of teaching my wife and I all about sailing, which we're very interested in. They both are so pleasant and our conversations were very enjoyable...nothing was forced. Thank you Capt Alberto, and Grace, for such a wonderful evening aboard your boat!

    Captain Joe was an incredible host and captain on our early Spring sail. He was kind, thorough, and hospitable with delicious treats to snack on. He knew the area and would point out interesting facts as well. He was casual, easy to talk with, and overall very easy going. We highly recommend Captain Joe for you sailing adventures. A wonderful way to spend the afternoon away from the laptop and enjoying the fresh air! Thanks, Joe!
