Reviews for 3 Hour Sail (2013) Ltd.
Booked an afternoon trip as a surprise for my husband's 85th birthday. We had a wonderful 3 hours. Motorred out of Victoria harbour, then up with the sails and away we went. Lots of boats were taking a look at this lovely wooden classic boat and possibly the float planes too as some passed overhead. A gentle wind took us past the Fisgard lighthouse and soon after we turned around and headed right up to Trail Point, with the Lt. Governor's house in clear view. Some of us had a picnic and some wine that we had brought with us. It was chilly in the Straits but the owner Rob was quite prepared with warm clothing and blankets if needed. On the way back the whale watching boats were all bobbing around nearby and we were told we might be lucky and see some whales. And we did! Not something they always see so we were very lucky. A fitting end to an excellent trip with Rob and his very competent Cap'n Peter. Both were very knowledgeable, good fun, and looked after us very well. A must do!
It was an absolutely beautiful morning on the water! So lovely and peaceful with no loud motors and then the wind filled the sails and we had an amazing ride. There were even some harbor porpoise and interesting jellyfish. I especially like the fried egg jelly. Rob and Pete are genuine, extremely knowledgeable and really encouraged us to be part of the tall ship experience. It’s always a bonus when you get to have fun and learn at the same time. I very highly recommend this experience when you are in Victoria.
