TESTIMONIALS

I was introduced to sailing in the Apostle Islands by Captain Peter several decades ago and have been blessed with the opportunity to sail with him on numerous memorable trips ever since. Captain Peter is very skilled as a operator so you can be assured he will follow safe seamanship. I have always found that 2-3 days sailing is as refreshing as a week at a resort setting. Bertha Stern is a very responsive and fun sailboat to sail in all weather conditions and has been continually updated with new equipment. Give Captain Peter a chance to " set the hook" on a new tradition.

I highly recommend a sailing trip with Captain Peter Bloch on the Bertha Stern. Safety first - Captain Bloch has an expertise and skill that is evident from the moment we arrived. His joyful personality immediately puts you at ease and contributes greatly to the overall positive atmosphere on the boat. We sailed to islands, caves, and incredible beaches. We docked in private, scenic areas suitable for sunset beach walks or deck-top startgazing. Meals were always delicious, healthy and thoughtfully prepared. I can't say enough about our family outing on the Bertha Stern. We and our teenagers will gladly go again!

We had so much fun on this trip. The boat was spacious, safe and comfortable. The captain had over 30 years experience sailing and made us feel very comfortable. We have returned many seasons and have passed his name along to our friends!

What a delicious way to get away from it all! The Apostle Islands are a glorious treat and there’s no better way to experience them than on the inimitable Bertha Stern. Peter is a delightful, thoughtful and knowledgeable captain who loves to share this special part of the world with others. He brings you to all sorts of cool caves, beaches and hiking areas, he’s a natural in the kitchen churning out great meals, and his boat is comfortable and cozy with multiple hang out and sleeping areas inside and out. Love the hammock! After several trips both with and without our kids, I can honestly say that Peter and his boat are a class act. No matter the weather, you’re always in good and safe hands with Cap’n Bloch!
