Sail with Captain and Crew
Born at the coast in Holland Captain Antoon was always drawn to the water and sailing and progressed naturally from sailing dinghies to cruising yachts and professional training. A Transport Canada licenced Captain, Antoon also holds a Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Offshore certification. With over 40 years experience sailing Canadian and European oceans and inland waters he settled with his family in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.
Following a career in higher education First Mate Robyn feels like she has come home to Atlantic Canada and enjoys taking care of business for Sail and See. In addition to arranging your booking and welcoming you onboard Robyn holds a Royal Yachting Association Day Skipper certification and the necessary operating, safety and first aid credentials.
Tours are in English, but Robyn or Antoon also speak French, Dutch, and some German. Together they are eager to share with you their love of sailing and the wonders of Mahone Bay!
Sail on Mahone Bay
Dotted with hundreds of islands, the sheltered waters of Mahone Bay are widely known as a sailor’s paradise. We share this unspoiled ocean playground with a vast diversity of wildlife. On a typical day we sail among seals, porpoises and seabirds.
Tours start from the Mahone Bay Civic Marina in the centre of town.
Sail on Oak Haven
Sail and See’s vessel Oak Haven is an Island Packet 350, a full-keeled, cutter-rigged sail yacht built with comfort and safety top of mind and equipped for your safety in accordance with Transport Canada requirements for passenger vessels.
Oak Haven has capacity for ten but we limit our tours to a maximum of six to create a more personalized and comfortable experience for you and your guests.
Our Captain and crew are fully certified and we carry all the necessary safety equipment on board. We participate in the Transport Canada Small Vessel Compliance Program.
