Creating Confident Sailors with Easygoing Personalized Training

Like A Bareboat Charter With A Little Help

Relax with a Captain Only Charter while living aboard our 41’ sailing sloop or our 40’ Catamaran. Your Captain and ASA instructor will let you be as involved running the boat as you like while making sure that you have a great time sailing in the clear shallow waters of the Keys. Enjoy sailing, kayaking, snorkeling with someone familiar with the local area who is there to help guide you with local knowledge.  How much and where to sail will be up to you, your captain will take full responsibily for the boat and maintance. He or she will have the final say to insure you and the boat stay safe.

 You can enjoy sailing, fishing, swimming and snorkeling in this unique part of the USA that is the Florida Keys.  Stop at an Island Park or a Tiki Bar with live music for dinner or drinks. Your Captain will be happy to share with you his or her knowledge of the reef ecology and the history of the keys. We can also share our snorkeling and fishing spots–-maybe we’ll even catch a lobster for dinner.

You will do your own provisioning and cooking and pay for any fuel used. You should also plan enough food for your Captain, he or she will be happy to “pitch in” with cooking or cleaning.
