Derek is an amazing charter boat captain. With over 20 years of maritime experience myself, I would recommend him to anyone. ~ Webb Moore, Marine Safety Enforcement Officer
Sail the Moon and Captain Derek made the most memorable engagement experience . From the romantic picnic on a private island , to having dolphins jumping and to the sunset proposal it could not have gone more perfect. . We would highly recommend using Sail the Moon for a great sail and amazing memories — Connie and Ron
My husband and I received this experience as a wedding gift and we highly recommend the boat ride to Caladesi island with Derek!! He was experienced, knowledgeable, and easy going! Great vibe as we jammed out on the water! Very relaxing and great time!! ~ K.S.
Booked a sunset cruise for husband’s birthday. CaptaIn Derek was friendly and excellent on confirming date, time, and details immediately. Also kept abreast of the weather for us. We arrived around 6 pm and he met us at the gate to lead us to the boat and show us around. Very accommodating regarding snacks, beverages, etc. Captain Derek was very friendly and informative about the sea, land sights, and gave us a tour of the lower area of the boat, and taught my husband and sons quite a bit about sailing. The two hours were lovely, very relaxing, we were not rushed at all. Hope you can go for a little smooth sailing! ~ K.B.
Honestly the best Charter Boat around. As soon as you step on board Derek makes you feel like family. Good for the whole family, girl trips, dude days out, proposals, taking the spouse out, or my personal favorite.. getting the spouse to be un-mad at you. It works every time! ~ K.F.
