at $225.00 per person (with a *$600.00 minimum),
plus gratuity.

All of our charters are private.  You and your party sail with our experienced captain and crew.     
Often the most leisurely sailing is during the "workweek"  Monday through Thursday when the
harbors are quiet and you feel like the ocean is yours!  
You can just relax and enjoy the day, away from the hustle and bustle of life.  
custom is our specialty- do you have a favorite food, type of flowers or chocolate?  
These are the touches we can arrange to make the memories of your sail last a lifetime!
