Take your family cruising for a month or more at a price everyone can afford. We offer an opportunity to do something truly once in a lifetime unique. Your family will be talking about this trip for years to come. We have great rates (about half the competition) because we focus on longer term charters of a month or more. It works out to cost just a little more than a partnership in a boat. We hope you can join our flotilla of catamarans as we explore hidden coves and magical beaches. The snorkeling is unforgettable. If you want to unwind, but still have the adventure of a lifetime, then you deserve a seabbatical today.
You deserve a SEABBATICAL today. A sailing adventure of a lifetime made very affordable.
Some things in life are more important.
Time is our most valuable asset. Sure when we are young we trade our health for money and when we are older we try to use the money to buy back our health, always taking time for granted. How often do we really get a chance to do something meaningful and memorable that makes an impact in the lives of the ones we love. If you have children that window of opportunity when the youngest one is old enough to remember, and the oldest is not yet too busy with school and friends, is small indeed. Check our website for more details.
If you have ever dreamed of really sailing off into the sunset with the ones you love, then here is your opportunity. Instead of taking the usual two years to purchase a boat, and two more to equip her for offshore sailing and another year of courses etc, not to mention the hassle involved in owning and eventually selling your boat. Consider going on a SEABBATICAL, for a month or a year, or just a week of sail instruction, you decide.
Picture yourself cruising with the added fun and camaraderie of fellow cruisers where help and support is always close by. Yet you have the independence and privacy of your own floating home. Joining our flotilla is better than owning your own boat and paying to be in a rally.
Experience the excitement and adventure of a new landfall instead of sailing in familiar waters. Yet enjoy the knowledge of someone who has been here before so you don’t miss any of the highlights. Don’t be surprised if you come back just a little different than when you left. I’m not just talking about tattoos and earrings; life at sea teaches teamwork, decision making, leadership, and communication skills and creates life long bonds that seem to permeate you like the salt air. And if sailing skills and experience are what you are looking for there is no better way to learn all aspects of the cruising life, than to actually be out there doing it, in a safe, friendly, fun environment.
Karen and I live quite far from the ocean. If we are going to fly to the coast to go sailing we might as well fly to the Caribbean where the water is incredible. We have long expensive flights so we like to stay a little longer. Plus it gives us a chance to have some friends come and stay for a while. The extra time gives us a chance to truly explore the region. While we are there we spend less than we do at home, and it is very affordable.
Ron purchased this yacht in 2005
We have cruised from the Caribbean up as far as Nova Scotia. I like the idea of being free to go to new destinations. It's part of the adventure. We develop a routing a year in advance and you are free to book which ever legs interest you the most.
We spent an incredible month on Anne's Turn in the Virgin Islands. This was the best charter boat I've ever rented.
It was older but obviously well maintained and in better shape then any Mooring boats that we've been on. It also allowed us the freedom to roam into both the US and British Virgin Islands. We are already planning next years trip.
