I started hosting in 2019 after I inherited the boat from my father. I have enjoyed a long career as a professional flight steward on private and corporate jets , I'm a Culinary Institute of America Grad, and I am a Coast Guard-licensed captain. At Captain Tack's Long Island Sound Sail and Dine, I am dedicated to providing my clients with an unforgettable cruising and quality dining experience. My partner and I have been serving the rich and famous for years on private and corporate jets and I aim to give you the same experience on the water.
At Captain Tack's Long Island Sound Sail and Dine, you get to experience a relaxing Sail on scenic Long Island Sound as well as a delicious three-course meal made from the freshest ingredients. Contact me for additional information.
Meet and greet at the dock with a welcome beverage, tour the boat, enjoy a safety brief, then cast off. Motor through historic Milford harbor and set sail in the Sound, whichever way the wind and tide take us. Snacks and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages to be served (appropriate to the conditions). Of course, you are welcome to bring your own alcohol. Enjoy two hours of sailing with a view of New Haven or Bridgeport and sail back to scenic Charles Island (where Captain Kidd was captured, and probably left some buried treasure) to anchor for dinner. Enjoy the sunset and tuck into a three course dinner prepared and served by the Captain, either in the salon, or if you prefer, up on deck. Hoist anchor and motor back to the dock.
Looking forward to hosting more family reunions, surprise marriage proposals, Bachelorette outings, wedding anniversaries, birthdays and graduation celebrations. Whatever the occasion, we are happy to work with you to make it romantic and memorable!
Chef Tack will happily coordinate with you in order to accommodate special diets, food allergies and preferences. Emphasis on fresh, seasonal and local foods. Love to showcase my passion for international cuisines.

“Capt Chris did a phenomenal job at taking our bachelorette party to the next level. we were able to bring our own speaker and play music and have a great time! he created a custom paleo lunch that that was absolutely delicious (we’re still dreaming of the rice noodles with almond butter sauce). He was in touch with us before hand and asked if we were open to meeting earlier in the day due to bad weather. we’re so thankful that we didn’t have to cancel; needless to say we really appreciated capt chris’ flexibility. This was the best experience and we are looking forward to rebooking!” July 2021

Our best wishes to you for a successful business. Make certain to leave time for your own and your partner's enjoyment as well--life is short. June 2021
On Airbnb since 2016 “I booked this as a surprise anniversary gift for my fiance and it was an awesome experience. we live in Milford and love kayaking on the sound and we're both foodies so this was a perfect combination. We met Chris at the marina and he was ready to welcome us with a glass of wine. He gave us a tour of the boat and went over safety measures. We then set off on our sailing adventure. Although it was sweat shirt weather since it's still early spring, we really picked a perfect day as the water was just so calm and sailing was a peaceful and magical experience. (Ahead of our experience Chris was constantly in touch with me as we kept an eye on the weather.) We sailed down to New Haven and back to Charles Island just in time for sunset. During our sail we enjoyed wine we brought out on the boat ong with delicious crudites that Chris had prepared. Once we docked at Charles Island Chris begun to get our dinner ready as we watched the many people walk over from Silver Sands to Charles Island during low tide. For our meal we had an absolutely delicious crab cake, which was all crab!! We then moved into the cabin for our dinner which was a Cajun style dinner. We had gumbo, dirty rice, corn bread as well as pickles and an asparagus, greens, candied pecans, prosciutto and burratta salad. The dinner was 5 stars and also what makes this experience such a great value!! After dinner we went back up on the boat and enjoyed dessert as we sailed back to the marina. I can't tell you the exact name of the desserts as they were some fancy items, but one was this incredible bread pudding type of dish and the other was a sous vide type of chocolate mousse. The desserts were just as delicious as the meal! All in all we give this experience 11 stars! Chris is a skilled sailor and even more skilled chef. We enjoyed his company and learning more about the history of the boat and just sharing stories. Also, the boat is a gem, it's beautiful, clean and full of character. The cabin includes a kitchen, a dining room and of course a restroom which is so great when you're enjoying a few glasses of wine. We recommend this experience to anyone visiting the area and also for anyone local who wants to enjoy a special evening right in our gem of a backyard! Thank you Chris for a great anniversary celebration!”
“We decided to book this trip for my 40th birthday and we had an amazing time! The sail, food, and Captain Chris were all perfect! I couldn’t have asked for a better day. We loved it so much that we’re trying to book again for my sister’s birthday in a couple months. Don’t hesitate to book this!” May 2021
