We sailed with Capt's Tim and Dove. First time sailing. It was a great experience, they are a very pleasant couple and very accommodating to their guests. We would definitely do it again.

Great experience! Took a 2 hour afternoon sail and the wind and water were perfect, not to mention our hosts-owners and Captains Dove and Tim were wonderful! It was a last minute decision that was pretty much the highlight of our trip.

Sail Venice provides an excellent experience! Captain Dove and her husband/first mate Tim are friendly and accommodating. Drinks and snacks are included and they're delicious. I look forward to my next sail with them the next time I come to Florida!
