It was a cloudy and windy day for sailing. The boat rocked alot out on the lake. We had to sail inside of the harbor the last 45 minutes of the boat ride. If it wouldn't have been so windy it would have been more enjoyable.

Captain Bob is the best! It worked out that he could accommodate us the same day, but I would highly suggest a reservation. His boat is a beauty. We had a mixed party (adults, children, minimally experienced and first timers) and he made everyone comfortable. We had a specific time frame and we were back in the marina right on... More

I sailed with a group of business acquaintances while in Milwaukee on business. Captain Bob runs a tight ship and we had a lot of fun. We went out before sunset and were able to see spectacular views from the water. If you are looking to get out on Lake Michigan, do yourself a favor and book with Captain Bob.

We took our grandchildren for a sail on an extremely windy day. Captain Bob was expert and made sure that we were all comfortable and enjoying the trip. Would do it again. A real Milwaukee must! Thank you Captain Bob. See you soon.

The delightful experience of sailing was made possible by a guide who explained the craft of sailing on Michigan waters.

A perfect way to spend a sunny June day on the lake. Highly recommended! Captain Bob is so personable and we look forward to another sailing trip when we are in Milwaukee.

My family surprised me for my 21st Birthday with an afternoon sail, and I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience was! My friends and I had such a great time- Captain Bob and his crew were so friendly, conversational and accommodating, and just made the sail so enjoyable and incredibly special. I heard from my mom, who helped... More

Excellent! Would definitely recommend...We were in Milwaukee on business and Capt. Bob made our day after having been in class for two days. What a way to relax and enjoy the scenery! Thank you Capt. Bob!

My Aunt (who has lived in Milwaukee for 40+ years) had wanted to try this to celebrate our birthdays. We kindof booked it on a whim. Boy were we happy we did! The owner does sailing trips for charter b/c he truly loves sailing. He is very accomodating. He took just us two out for a couple of hours in... More

Found Captain Bob through Trip Advisor and we had such a great sailing evening! Several other guests joined the four of us and Bob shared sailing information to us novices and was a great host!
