We celebrated my father's belated birthday and a belated mother's day with Captain Charlie. The trip was beautiful and Captain Charlie was fun, entertaining, and knowledgeable. We look forward to going out again!

My husband had an awesome birthday learning to sail. Captain Charlie was both engaging and entertaining. It was also great to hear fun stories about the owners of those beautiful homes on the river.

Incredible Experience!!! Sailing the Daffy was such a memorable experience. Captain Charlie really knows how to have a good time. He is a great teacher and super knowledgeable about all things sailing and more. Booking a sailing trip with anyone other than Captain Charlie would be a huge mistake. Reviewed on May 9, 2017


Such a great day. Highly recommend, I had friends visiting so we decided to do this. It was so fun and relaxing and I can't wait to do it again. It was supposed to be a three hour tour but Captain Charlie tried to fulfill our desire to see the sunset by staying out an additional 2 hours. Captain Charlie was very accommodating, friendly, and funny. I had my 3 year old on the boat with us and he let him "drive" the boat several times, he loved it! The only negatives (if you can call it that) were that it was supposed to be a private tour but we shared ours with another couple. To be fair, we only called the day before and he squeezed us in and the couple was great. We really enjoyed their company. Other than that, the sails weren't up much (only twice for short periods of time) but again not the company or Captain Charlie's fault as the ocean was really rough and we were lucky to go at all. All in all it was a fabulous day and I really hope to do it again...soon. Thanks Captain Charlie! Reviewed on April 25, 2017

Set Sail and Leave Your Stress Behind!!! Last Saturday, we had one of the loveliest, calming experiences ever! We boarded the Daffy at Charlie Knupp's home and meandered our way through the New River where we saw spectacular homes with every type of architecture you can imagine, beautiful fauna and a glimpse of Old Ft Lauderdale mixed in with the new. Captain Charlie Knupp was the Quintessential Host. He had the expertise and knowledge of Santiago as he really knows his stuff and was proud to show us his city. It didn't hurt that the water was calm, cobalt blue and perfect! We left all are cares behind and could not get the smiles off our faces when we saw the flying sailfish. Priceless! We highly recommend sailing with Charlie on the Daffy! Reviewed on April 11, 2017

Captain Charlie was the best! We went on the Daffy and had a great time, beautiful sights; he is very entertaining and knowledgeable. If you want a personalized tour, this is the trip to take. We can't wait to go again.

We were recently in Fort Lauderdale and sailed with Captain Charlie on the Daffy. The boat is located near Las Olas and very easy to get to. My husband and I had a blast! We talked and laughed, and even had a chance to put our sailing skills to the test! It was truly the highlight of our trip! The next time we are in Fort Lauderdale we will definitely sail again with Captain Charlie!
