- My wife and I had one of the best experiences of our life! Not only is Michael a great teacher but a great person to be around and his demeanor is exemplary. We can't wait to sail with him again!
Bernie Traurig - ASA 114, Cruising Catamaran
- With Mike there are no gimmes, it’s hands on and pure fun every step of the way. Each day of sailing was followed by an enjoyable team approach in the galley and a relaxing evening on deck. I would highly recommend Seahorse Sailing School!
