What a spectacular afternoon of sailing! Captain Antoon and First Mate Robyn are wonderful people and extremely knowledgeable sailors, and they took us out on their beautiful Oak Haven 35' sailboat for a fabulous tour of Mahone Bay and its islands.My family and I (4 adults and 2 kids aged 7 and 9) wanted to sail on the Atlantic while we were on Nova Scotia's South Shore, and from the moment we found Sail and See, and spoke with Robyn, I knew we were in for a great adventure. Warm and friendly, safety-conscious, great sense of humour, combined with drinks, snacks and wind in our sails -- it was the PERFECT sail! Thank you Robyn and Antoon for the highlight of our vacation in NS! We haven't stopped talking about our time with you (the kids want to buy a sailboat), and telling everyone we know to book a tour with you. Hope to see you both again next summer! Dank je, Robyn en Antoon!

Our day tour was amazing! Robyn and Ton were wonderful hosts and great sailors! The weather was perfect, the scenery exceptional and the conversations entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely lunch on beautiful Griffin Island too. All of our group highly recommend this activity. We plan to do it again next year!

Robyn and Anton were just wonderful! Great sailing experience with my 18 month old granddaughter. Anton was very knowledgeable and we felt very safe. Robyn as a first mate and the hostess was very friendly, very kind and absolutely lovely. We will definitely be back. Thank you both!

Anton and Robyn are exceptional hosts and turned a wind-less day, which is unwelcome by sailors, into a beautiful sailing adventure. We will return.

Our time on Sail and See was very enjoyable and I highly recommend you choose the all-day sale cruise. I am not associated with the business at all, I just feel you get a better experience as you have time to really head out of the bay and experience the full experience. Tom and Robyn are great hosts, and I cannot express what a great time we had. I promise you will not be disappointed.

We were a group of five sailing with Antoon and Robyn on an early fall afternoon. We had a really great experience. They got the trip just right, helping us understand about sailing on Mahone Bay and even encouraging us to take the helm and work the sheets. Not only did we enjoy the sailing, but we learned a lot too. Their yacht, Oak Haven, smoothed out any swells so that we had a comfortable, but exhilarating trip. I can’t recommend Sail and See more highly. We’d love to go again!

Think no more and book today. We had a fabulous time with Sail and See. Captain Ton and First and Best Mate Robyn are amazing. Very knowledgeable about sailing, fun, and great hosts. We learned, laughed, sang, and had delicious treats. They may add a lobster lunch/dinner on an island next year and that would be so much fun. From booking, to communication, to the sail --it was all a delight. We can't wait to go back and sail with them again. We think a sunset sail would be great, too. Obviously, we didn't want to get off the sailboat.

Thank you so much Robin and Ton for an amazing half-day sail on your beautiful boat. We chose to just be very appreciative passengers and the skill and expertise by you was a joy to experience. Loved every second of it and would highly recommend Sail and See to truly see the beauty of the Mahone Bay islands.
