Galina loved it! I have rarely seen her light up the way she did when she got to sail the boat.

Phil's apprehension was gone as soon as he boarded WhiteCap
My name is Christine and I would like to thank you for referring us to this website. We have 2 boys ages 5 and 3. We signed up with Heart of Sailing and went sailing last weekend in Dana Point. Our 3 year old (Ethan) who is autistic was so delighted and excited with the whole experience. I almost cried when he said "yes" when the Captain asked if he enjoyed the trip. Ethan hardly ever say anything at all and for him to respond to the Captain was really a big improvement for all of us. It means a lot to us to hear him. Thank you soooo much for everything. GOD bless you and your family.
My son, Jesse has Down Syndrome and I took him down to this excursion. He absolutely loved it. George Saidah, his staff and the Dana Point Yacht Club were so awesome. My son had the best time of his life. He loves boating and any water experience. They allowed him to navigate. He asked for a map (which now he knows at sea it is called a chart) and remembered every single spot we went. He holds on to that chart. I have one very happy pirate because that is what he calls himself now and he cannot wait for the next trip!!!
The staff are unbelievable with the children. Mr. Saidah is a very special man to be doing this and donating his time. He is so patient.
I really recommend this to all parents and volunteers.
