We have done several sailing charters with Ed. He is the best! So welcoming, laid back and is great with letting everyone on the boat be the Captain. Wouldn't go to anyone else!

I don't remember exactly but I thought it was 40$/ person /$100 minimum but we were off season. It was very reasonable for such a memorable evening.
