We had an awesome experience sailing with Captain Bob and his crew! It was so much fun seeing the city from the water and we learned a lot while sailing too. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Milwaukee!

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....More
