We booked a sunset sail while vacationing in Fort Myers. Captain Paul was great! We enjoyed the company of the 2 other couples on the sail. It was a beautiful evening and we hope to do it again when back in Fort Myers!

Don’t hesitate to book a sail on the Panacea thru Fanta Sea sailing. There is nothing that could have made this experience better. A really knowledgable captain, a beautiful vessel and a gorgeous location. We loved every second.

Go on their website for a total schedule and prices. We did the Sunset Cruise which was 3 hours and the four of us had the whole boat to ourselves for a set price.
