Capt. Oliver was fantastic! The ship was beautiful and had plenty of room for us. The cherry on top was the sunset and moonrise!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Sean, We truly value your kind and incredible words for Captain Oliver! I will be sure to let him know! I am so happy that you had such a wonderful experience. I can't even imagine the incredible memories you now have but thank you for sharing a piece of it with us!  Best, Brianna
Our captain, Clark, was fantastic. Fun to hang with, while also providing us space to talk about whatever we like. He tailored our trip to our preference to spend more time at sail, while leaving time to swim. The trip met (and, in many ways, exceeded) our expectations.
Texas Sailing was very accommodating. I requested a sunset view, so they moved our time from 1pm-5pm to 4:30pm-8:30pm. The sunset was spectacular! The weather was gorgeous. Captain Bill was very knowledgeable, so him and my husband enjoyed talking about sailboats. We brought munchies and opened up a bottle of sparkling wine. After an hour and a half of sailing, I put together the spring salad, chopped walnuts, bacon bits, and Italian dressing in a disposable bowl. We ate in courses. The Captain started the grill and my husband grilled ribeyes for all of us. We drifted while we ate rather than being anchored. We listened to my Pandora's Jimmy Buffet station most of the time. Also, under the Captain's supervision, the Captain let my husband drive the sailboat back toward the marina. We had a great time!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hey Ana Lisa, Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful way to celebrate! Thanks for writing in and sharing your experience with us. Reading it made me hungry and wish I was in Margaritaville. I'm so glad to hear that Texas Sailing and Captain Bill were so accommodating. We love working with them! I'll make sure they all know how appreciative you were of your experience, and that if they ever need some extra help steering, give your husband a call ;) I wish you a great rest of your week!  Best, ​Brooke
