"...an absolute pleasure..."

Steph and Friends

Vancouver | Jul 2020

Skipper Tony was an incredible host for our girls day/bachelorette on the water. We had 7 ladies that were aboard his beautiful sail boat for an 8-hour adventure. Tony was fantastic with communication and any needs we had. He was more than happy to accommodate a pick up and drop off in Vancouver and a stop at Bowen Island for dinner. We would all HIGHLY recommend Skipper Tony. We ended the night at the celebration of lights and saw the sunset and fireworks while on the boat - it was truly incredible! He is very knowledgeable and we knew we were in good hands! Thanks Tony!

We finished our trip a month ago and
I still think fondly about it every day!
Tony was a stupendous host, charming and gregarious. It was an absolute pleasure spending a few days with him on his beautiful boat.
Whatever your speed, you’ll be delighted with your time on Sailor’s Midnight! From reading a book, looking out at the beautiful views, to getting some active sailing experience, Tony has got you covered. The whole trip was a pleasure. We can’t wait for next time!

What a great trip!
Our sailing trip was outstanding!

My dad, three siblings, and I had so much fun on the boat: we went swimming, jumping, and wake boarding.
It was one experience that we all loved.
I would 100% book again.

Amazing boat-ride experience!! Honestly loved this experience so much, it was a great time for me and my friends. Tony was very kind to us and provided us with warm blankets, snacks, and drinks.

Most importantly, he was very entertaining and a kind soul. He made the experience all the more fun! Me and friends loved this experience so very much and we hope to do it next time we come to visit. Definitely recommended for a fun time or even a family trip. Five stars all around for me!!

"Amazing Sailing Trip"

Ilke and Nick 

Vancouver | Jun 2020

If you are looking for an amazing sailing trip, Tony is the person you need to contact. Look no further. We did 4 hour sailing trip and already looking forward to book another one before summer ends. Beautiful scenery & wonderful way to spend the day. Boat is absolute beauty, very comfortable & clean.
Tony is one of the most amazing person I've ever met in my entire life. He is very kind, genuine, informative and very accommodating and happy to re-schedule the trip if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate =) We also spent the night on the boat after our trip and that was such a unique experience. I highly recommend this trip to anyone.

"...a wonderful experience."

Vishal and Friends
Arizona/Vancouver | Jul 2020

I reserved this tour for a group of 5 and it was a wonderful experience. The boat was very clean, comfortable and Tony was an excellent host. Tony got in touch with us right after reservation to provide details about the boat, parking & possible sail times; which was very convenient. He shared stories from his sailing experiences and provided many insights about the surroundings. Since we were interested in watching the sunset from the boat, he adjusted the sail time & path so that we got the lovely view of the setting sun.

I highly recommend this experience!

Perfect Father’s Day Gift

Joanne and Family
Vancouver | Jun 2020

My family purchased a 4 hour cruise with Skipper Tony aboard his beautiful 40ft sailboat as my Father’s Day gift.
Tony has great knowledge and pride of the spectacular scenery and islands that we passed through during the sail.
The boat is well equipped for a safe family / group outing and we are sure to make this an annual family trip going forward.
We would highly recommend this to visitors or BC locals like ourselves looking for adventures out on the water.

Our 4 hour trip with Tony was nothing short of amazing. Tony was super friendly, informative and even let us help sail the boat. He also made sure we felt safe and comfortable as soon as we climbed aboard. Our tour of Keats and the surrounding area was the highlight of our week. We highly recommend a trip with Tony to anyone visiting the Sunshine Coast. You won’t be disappointed!

A must if you ever visit Gibsons! Tony was amazing, very charismatic, genuine, polite and safety orientated. We went to Gibsons for my husband's birthday and he help me surprise him with this sailing . He was incredibly accommodating and super fun. 100% recommend a trip with him!

"Taste of the Sunshine Coast"

Kim and Rahul
Vancouver BC | Jul 2020

Wanting to give our nephews and niece a taste of the Sunshine Coast's beauty and tranquility, we signed up to spend some time on Tony's beautiful sailing boat. Somehow Tony arranged for the perfect conditions: sunny skies, majestic winds, and a delightful host! Tony's warm style relaxed us immediately, allowing us to get involved in tying knots and adjusting the sails, which the kids loved. He also shared wonderful local knowledge about the islands we encircled, the wildlife we encountered, and the best spots to swim. Which we happily did off the boat! Four hours felt like a luxurious full day in nature's arms and Tony's great care. Thank you so much! [*substitute photo]

Perfect afternoon on the water!

Terry and Friends
Vancouver BC | Aug 2020

We took a 4-hour trip with Tony and it was absolutely fantastic. Tony is a great skipper and a wonderful person to chat with during the sail - we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and learned a ton about the area. Tony is great company - if you'd like to learn about the area or sailing in general, he's happy to oblige. Otherwise, he's happy to just let you enjoy your ride. The boat was lovely and more than spacious enough for our group of 3 (excluding the skipper).
We will absolutely be booking another excursion with Tony next time we are in Gibsons and would highly recommend Adventure Sail to anyone looking to spend some quality time out on the water in the beautiful Sunshine Coast!

Fantastic Birthday Sail

Paula and Husband 
Calgary AB | Aug 2020

For my husband's birthday, I arranged a half day sail with Skipper Tony. We loved every minute of our trip. After departing Gibsons Harbour, we ventured into Georgia Strait, where the winds picked up and we sailed out far enough for a striking view of Vancouver, with majestic Mt. Baker in the background. Later, we turned northeast, and meandered through the chain of islets that dot the mouth of Howe Sound. Throughout our voyage we were entertained by Skipper Tony's gracious hospitality and entertaining stories. If you are looking for a fun and informative sailing experience, with a knowledgeable and personable skipper, you'll love Adventure Sail !

Another unforgettable day with the infamous Skipper Tony! Our second time sailing with Tony continues a now tradition with him every summer. It was an incredible day that couldn’t have been beat! Thanks for the amazing weather Mother Nature and to Skipper Tony for being so hospitable, accommodating and such a joy to sail with.

Skipper Tony was amazing! Friendly, hospitable, knowledgeable, easy going and the list goes on. We had a great time and sailing and relaxing. The route we took was breathtaking and was definitely the experience we wanted while visiting beautiful British Columbia. Next time we will book an 8 hour trip and bring more friends. This adventure was definitely the highlight of our vacation!

What a beautiful afternoon!
We went for a four hour sail with Tony for my son’s tenth birthday. Tony got the kids involved in the sailing by giving them “jobs” and they really enjoyed that. It was our second trip with Tony and we hope we are lucky enough to go again.

Delta BC | Jul 2020

This is the first time I ever did something other than fishing on the Sunshine Coast. When my wife booked the trip, we were hoping to have a very relaxing experience after some intense battles with lingcod and rockfish the day before. Tony was great and really work with us to ensure that we had the best experience possible. The weather on the day we booked the trip was not good, with high wind and lots of rain. Tony suggested to move the sailing to the following morning as it had a great forecast to be sunny.
My group had 4 adults, 3 kids (ages 16, 11, 9). We also has an 8-month old infant. Everyone had a great time! My kids had a chance to help setting the sail and Tony was able to keep everyone engaged which isn't an easy job when comes to kids. 
I would totally do it again next time when we are in Sunshine Coast. This is an experience you will not regret.

An unforgettable experience

No matter if you are a Vancouver local or someone from the other side of the globe, I urge you to go sailing with Tony! Such a knowledgeable and kind skipper with the most beautiful 40 foot sailboat! If you want to get into the heart of Howe Sound and have some fun, this is the perfect way to do so. Tony is highly experienced and qualified, but is also simply a great person to talk with and has so many amazing stories. I booked the 4 hour tour for my father’s birthday and, as a classy guy, he absolutely loved it. We brought some snacks and a bottle of champagne and just relaxed in the sunshine while touring the beautiful fjord. If you’re even thinking of going on a tour, do it, you won't regret it!

Adventure Sail for the WIN !

Jenn & Sister & Friends
Vancouver BC | Aug 2020

I cannot recommend Adventure Sail and Tony enough! We had a weekend getaway planned for my sisters's 30th birthday and booked with Tony for a 4 hour sail around the area. It was spectacular! Tony was extremely generous and kind with his time and his knowledge of the surrounding area and waters. He was accommodating after we were running late from the ferries and let us adjust our start time last minute!
Tony, thank you for making us feel at home and immediately comfortable on the boat. You are thoughtful, professional, considerate and a kind and gentle soul.
We loved sharing stories, music and laughter with you and the experience ended up being the highlight of our trip.
Thank you Tony for a special memory we will treasure forever.
