    We had a wonderful time sailing with Captain Alberto and his wife Grace! My husband and I and two of our friends went for an afternoon cruise as a birthday celebration. The boat was beautiful and they were friendly and gracious hosts. I was interested in learning more about sailing and Captain Alberto (an experienced sailing instructor) was a great teacher. Captain Alberto was also very responsive and helpful when we were making the arrangements for the trip. We hope to have an opportunity to do this again, and highly recommend a trip with Captain Alberto!

    Could not have asked for a better day on Captain Alberto's sailboat! My family and I had a wonderful time sailing across the bay, going for a quick swim and got a bonus tour of the Annapolis marina. Alberto and his wife were gracious hosts and let us have some time behind the wheel. It was such a treat sailing with such experienced individuals that will give you impromptu sailing tips and tricks. I highly recommend Captain Alberto for anyone looking to have a fun day on the bay and learn a thing or two about sailing!

    This was such a great experience!! I brought 4 friends on this boat for my birthday and it was perfect. We all brought snacks and drinks, our bathing suits and a reggae playlist to set us up for a relaxing and fun day. We got to participate in steering the ship, raising the mast, etc. and that was a really cool experience because I like to learn things. Also, Grace and Alberto were so genuine, adventurous, fun, kind and I could go on. I had the best time hearing their life stories and by the end of the trip our relationship felt way more like "old friends" than "customer". We also were able to pull over and swim which to me was the funnest part! I definitely recommend this experience and think it could be anything from "classy and romantic" to "casual and fun" depending on the event and what each group wants and time of day.
