Shearwater - Sail the Abacos

Testimonials

What People Are Saying...

We just returned from 7 days with Captain Bruce, it was one of our best vacations ever. There were 6 adults and three children ages 7, 5 and 4. Captain Bruce was great, sharing his knowledge of the Abacos and sailing with us. A beautiful spot, great snorkeling, fun sailing and comfortable, well maintained boat. We would do it again in a heart beat. Jill Golden, Long Beach California


I highly recommend the High Adventure on Shearwater with Captain Bruce. Our Boy Scout Troop has had the fortune of this adventure twice; summer of 2011 with 17 scouts/3 leaders and summer of 2012 with 10 scouts/5 leaders. We had an incredible time both years! Captain Bruce is passionate about sailing and delivering an adventure second to none. He cares about teaching the fundamentals of sailing as well as wetting the appetites for future interest in the sport. Shearwater is a beautiful vessel that you'll fall in love with from the moment you first see her. Captain Bruce knows the hot spots of the Abacos Cays as well as a native Bahamian. If you've got a group of young people that are interested in the adventure of a life-time, I'd highly encourage Shearwater and Captain Bruce! Patrick G. Keegan, Asst. Scout Master, Troop 3000, Milton, GA


The other tip confirms what is in the write-up about Captain Bruce Ost. We did a "Day Sail " with him and it was the BEST charter of its kind we have ever taken! Attentive, congenial, expert , and a delight to be with for a full day!!! Top notch! Tyler Johnston, Piedmont, CA


Captain Bruce lived up to all of our expectations. He was the perfect host from the very beginning, and the boat was immaculate. Even though we were sailing under heavy wind conditions, we always felt safe on the boat. We really enjoyed the food, especially the homemade banana bread and hummus, and the on deck sing-a-long to Capt. Bruce's guitar playing was the perfect end to a perfect day. We look forward to enjoying more time on Shearwater in the future! Christa Henry - La Jolla, CA


Our 7 night cruise aboard the Shearwater was fantastic!! After spending some time getting to know Marsh Harbor, Captain Bruce took us sailing through the Abacos chain of islands. Along the way he introduced us to his favorite spots and favorite people. It was really nice to meet the locals and share a few stories. The pace was relaxed, the food was delicious, and the Shearwater was extremely comfortable for the four of us. We also loved the chance to learn how to sail, Captain Bruce is a very patient instructor. Thanks Captain Bruce, and of course thanks also to our companion during the week, Jersey. It was a great way to ring in the New Year, and we are looking forward to returning someday. Laura Hartman - Exeter, NH


We spent a day trip with Capt. Bruce on the Shearwater during our recent trip to Abaco. Our day was the highlight of our week long stay...

Everything about the trip was great and exceeded our expectations...

We enjoyed our trip and will book upon our return! Ann & Dennis Duffy - Bettendorf, Iowa USA


I also want to thank you for your attitude and positive influence you had with the Troop 264 boys...

Benny has remarked many times what a fantastic time he had with you and the Troop, working on your ship, cooking, and the wonderful experience you gave these young men. Benny is looking to hopefully attend one of the US' military academies, and your influence should serve him well there or elsewhere later in life...

You have, in very specific demonstrated ways, modeled Scout behavior and provided a good role model Bart Hungerford (Boy Scout father) Troop 264 Olney, MD USA
