I cannot speak highly enough of Tim and this rental experience. I sent many messages to him during and after the booking process, and he always responded quickly. He accommodated us and even allowed us to reschedule due to the threat of inclement weather. The boat itself was beautiful, clean, and ready to go. I would rent again from Tim in a heartbeat.
Had a great day sail today! Boat performed very well, and the extra ice was much appreciated. We come down from Indiana 3 to 4 times a year and hope to make this a regular thing. Tim is fantastic, very easy going and helpful, easy in and out of the slip, highly recommended! We'll do this again with Tim every time we are in town.
We rented Discovery for a daysail on the Gulf of Mexico. She is well maintained, well equipped, and a great boat to sail the Gulf. Tim and Dove met us at the boat and went over everything with us, and it was all positive.
If you are looking for a bareboat charter in the Venice area I would recommend Discovery. If you are looking for a sunset sail, Sail Venice does a great job with their charters as well!
