"For years I have wondered how to experience sailing on the ocean. It was great to find this adventure cruise that originated locally. It was very affordable and was with great friendly people. My dream was fulfilled!" Jay
"Well worth it, well organized, congenial attitude, lots of fun!" Joe
"Bonneville Sailing Adventure Cruise was a fantastic course. It provided me the opportunity to practice and ask questions. Our skipper was skilled, informative and patient - I never felt like my questions were stupid or too simple. I feel like I can go back to BVI and handle a big boat with more confidence and skill. The meals were perfect and my husband and I enjoyed our meals on Catalina Island also. I would do this trip again just to keep my sailing knowledge fresh. Thanks to our whole team. It was a memorable trip. The pods of dolphins were also an added bonus!" Stacy
