Capt Russ and Susan were very hospitable during our 2 hour sailing excursion. It was more than a plain outing: it was a lesson about the history of Key Biscayne and the surrounding areas of Miami. We thoroughly enjoyed the sailing around the homes and the lighthouse, while nibbling on the great fruit/cheese platter that Susan prepared for us. Thanks for the wonderful time! We will surely recommend you to our friends. A great family activity!

My husband and I chartered a private sail with Captain Russ for a full day at the recommendation of the Ritz Carlton. It was the highlight of our trip. I have been on several private charters in the past and this one was the best. Captain Russ called a couple of days ahead of our scheduled charter to go over all the details. I requested that he prepare and bring food. You do have the option of bringing your own food, but I am glad that I had him. He is a chef and prepared a lovely appetizer, entrée and dessert by candlelight. He also offered to bring any beverages that we requested. He made sure that our every need was catered to while sailing. He was also very personable. We had a full day of sailing and also anchored for swimming in a nearby bay. We saw dolphins jumping and swimming along with fireworks on our tour. Of course, there is no way to guarantee that this will happen on your tour:) It was a nice added bonus. I also need to add that I use Trip Advisor on a regular basis, but I have never taken the time to write a review. That is how good our experience was with Captain Russ and we hope yours is also.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with other on Trip Advisor. We had one of those PERFECT days for you -- so glad you enjoyed the food. That's why I custom prepare a menu to suit the tastes of my guests -- and we try to maximize the romance factor on our trips. What better al fresco dining than having Miami all lit up at night as the backdrop for your dining enjoyment! Loved having you aboard and hope to see you again sometime when you are back in Miami.

My girlfriend and I had such an amazing time while sailing on a romantic sunset cruise with Russ and Susan. Captain Sir was very spacious and clean. I would highly recommend booking this lovely experience and making it a memory you'll never forget!

Captain Russell's kind manner and incredible knowledge of the Key Biscayne/Miami area let us know we were in good hands. The sailboat, Captain Sir!, was immaculate. Captain Russ and his wife, Susan, made us feel as if were family all while delivering top notch service and views all day. If you spend a day with Captain/Chef Russell and Susan, one thing is certain... you will not go hungry! From the bagels, fresh fruit, and cheese to his to-die-for homemade crab cakes and apple crisp, we were beyond satisfied! If you are looking to take your time in Key Biscayne beyond land, I could not possibly recommend spending a day on Captain Sir! more!!! Captain Russell and Susan will undoubtedly take your vacation to the next level!! We made memories to last a lifetime on Captain Sir! with Captain Russell and Susan on our girls getaway vacation in Key Biscayne! We hope to spend time on Captain Sir! for years to come!

What a perfect, wonderful 2 hour sunset cruise with Russ and Captain Sir! Our young boys loved the experience, the food, and what great relaxation on a beautiful evening with a fantastic view of Miami's skyline. The boat was perfect for our family of four, the hospitality phenomenal (had our desired bottle of wine ready for our arrival, a wonderful set of appetizers, electric candle lights after sunset under the stars, and blankets for the kids to rest on deck after the sun set). A truly memorable experience that the family will remember for a long time....
