What Our Customers Say

“Captain Frank is simply superb. My husband, Jim, has had two lessons, the later of which I observed today. Although Jim has had lots of book learning through the United States Power Squadron, he wanted “hands on” experience, especially in slow-speed maneuvering and getting on and off the dock. Jim has raved about Captain Frank’s ability to take the mystery out of handling a boat, navigating with electronics and anchoring–all delivered in a calm manner with lots of good humor. Thank you, Captain Frank. You are a treasure to find here in Naples!”
