About Orange Beach Sunset Sailing Charters

Orange Beach Sunset Sailing Charters was founded by Captain Ryan Rayfield in 2007.  Ryan is a gulf coast native who grew up on the Alabama coastal waters around Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama.   His love for the outdoors and being on the water is apparent in everything he does. 

Ryan really cares about quality of life and preserving the lost art of sailing.  You will see him sailing by on his yacht, Sailob most any day you are on the beaches of Alabama.  With the wind in his sails and the Sun in his face, you will see him cruising along with satisfied customers of all ages along the Gulf Shores.

Making a difference in Sailing Charters in Orange Beach

When Ryan decided to leave corporate America in 2006, he took with him a vision of becoming the best in the sailing charter business on the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama Gulf Coast.  He purchased his sailing yacht three years earlier and took her through a complete upgrade and restoration project.  The nine month endeavor was completed in March 2007 and the Sailob Sailing Charter yacht was launched.

Ryan uses sailing and sailing charters as a way to share his love for what is becoming a lost art.  For centuries, mariners have circumnavigated the globe using the wind as their propulsion.  The feeling you get when sunset sailing in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores Alabama will take you back in time.  You will understand what it was like to move along on a body of water, only using the wind to get you there.
