What Are Sailing Guests Are Saying About Us


The Sailing Piano excursion is definitely a unique and personalised way to discover the Toronto Islands beaches and the Harbour. Captain Dave is a musical genius and a nautical expert. We all had a terrific time sailing with Capt. Dave.

David is a most entertaining and gracious captain 

Nothing more relaxing than lying on the net at front of the boat ,
waves splashing at your toes
libations in hand , soaking in the warm afternoon sun , 
soft breezes caressing you as the Toronto harbour shrinks in the distance , 

David Presents us with a mouth watering charcuterie board of assorted tasty delights all the while amusing us with witty banter, serenading us back into the harbour ,accompanied by his on-board piano. A perfect ending to an overall exhilarating experience.
Can’t wait to book again with David and the Sailing Piano!

Dave is the ultimate captain and host, able to keep the boat afloat and entertainment rocking simultaneously while making it look easy. Nothing beats sailing around the harbourfront with the careful maneuvering of The Sailing Piano!

Matt Nuss


he Sailing Piano is a MUST do Toronto experience. The host, and Captain, David Johanns is fully professional, but a ton of fun and highly musically talented. This experience is something I look forward to every season. It's always a new adventure, and creates lasting fabulous memories. I highly recommend The Sailing Piano.

We booked with David as we wanted to celebrate a milestone birthday with a couple of friends and family.
The event was Amazing! Sailing toward the sunset, great tunes, delicious appetizers, dinner by the light house and the view of the Toronto skyline with sparkles on the way back to shore... which was a huge hit with the kids!
More than just sailing, a lasting memory. Thanks captain David.

I spent a wonderful day on the Sailing Piano boat last autumn. It was great to be able to move about and lounge on the huge boat with ease. Not only was David a responsible competent sailor, but he was also an attentive, fun, and relaxed host. Highly recommended.

Captain David took us sailing on a lovely summer evening on the lake. Watching the beautiful sunset from his boat was truly a memorable experience. He prepared a delicious BBQ for us and gave me his sweater when it got a little chilly at night. We also took in the incredible Toronto skyline at night on the way back to shore. Captain David is funny, charming and knowledgeable. I hope to join him again for another sailing adventure
