At summer camp in Minnesota (4th grade) was the first time on a sailboat, I was hooked instantly. My passion for being on the water today is introducing the sailing experience to all ages.
As a former Commander USCG AUX 9-10 Ft. Myers & Cape Coral FL, I enjoy the Gulf of Mexico waters, I earned my 100-ton Master Captain’s License with sailing endorsement combined with a half a decade of sailing instruction experience American Sailing Association instructor certification for Basic Keelboat, Coastal Cruising, Bare Boat, Navigation, Catamaran sailing courses. I have instructed in the Virgin Islands US & BVI, FL Keys, Ft Myers Beach up to Tampa Bay/St Petersburg’s areas of operations.
Your experience will be fun, safe, sightseeing combined with practical on the water knowledge, my goal is to accommodate, educate and have fun doing it. So you walk off the boat smiling, wanting to get back on the water realizing you just had the most out of your sailing experience.
If you want to sail—DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!! This was an awesome experience that was made extra special by Scott and his 1st mate Laurel. We were truly in the hands of an of an expert and an amazing teacher who was both kind and patient, and allowed us to participate in all the activities of sailing. We truly feel spoiled sailing (our first sailing adventure) in Scott’s amazing 45’ sailing yacht. Could not have hand-picked a better captain, sailing vessel or experience. Totally worth every penny, and hope to experience this again with Scott the next time we are in St Pete. Thanks so much.
Definitely a memory my boys and I will treasure for years to come. Scott was very experienced and an excellent teacher. Such a fun afternoon!
This experience was a blast! Captain Scott and his 1st mate, Cat, were fantastic hosts and instantly made me feel incredibly welcome!
Captain Scott is a great teacher, what started out as a 4 hour introduction to sailing, turned into me getting certified in 101-basic keel boat and 103-coastal cruising. I now feel confident that I can sail the 30ft sailboat that my wife and I just purchased last year but havent had a chance to sail yet. It was my very first sail, I fell in love with it, I wish I could have started 30+ years sooner. Thanks Capt Scott
If you want to really learn what’s going on and how to sail so this. You’ll leave feeling like you really learned and accomplished something.
Absolutely awesome….Even lack of wind hardly diminished our joy on this adventure! Met & exceeded expectations!!
Thank you for sharing the beauty in sailing with us. We will see you soon.
We went on an introductory lesson with Scott as our captain. He made us feel welcome on his boat and made the whole experience fun and engaging. We had a chance to steer the boat, operate the sails and practice basic maneuvers such as tacking and jibing, as well as getting to know different parts of the boat. We walked away feeling inspired to try to learn sailing in-depth and can’t wait to take our next class with Scott!!!
We had a great day sailing with Scott (and first mate Laurel) on his beautiful yacht, Plan B! Both the boat and captain handled the gusty winds with poise. We highly recommend this experience to travelers and sailors of all age and experience. Best way to see Tampa Bay!
Scott and his team were amazing! Very knowledgeable and open to teaching us. We had a great time and felt that the value was amazing for the time spent and experience we gained.
