Your Florida sailing charter departs from our dock in New Port Richey just north of Tampa at 10 am. We motor the sailboat up the channel through a pretty waterfront residential area. Once out of the channel we hoist the sails, cut the engine and head where the wind takes us.
We can sail to a snorkel spot where depending on the conditions you can see sponges and colorful fish, and perhaps even a turtle.
Afterwards we'll sail toward peaceful Anclote Key State Preserve where we can anchor (or just float) and you can enjoy a balmy swim, relax on the beach, go shelling, bring a picnic lunch or do nothing at all. We take you ashore to the islands from the sailboat by dinghy**.
We will depart from the islands and continue sailing at your convenience. The cruise lasts 6 hours.
Bring your own MP3 player, all our boats are equipped with stereos.
Despite Florida's mild winter climate, the Gulf temperature drops into the lower 60's which is not conducive to swimming so we offer a couple alternatives:
For the sailors, we can go all day sailing, stopping only if need be for lunch.
We can anchor for lunch at the island, jump on our dinghy** and ride to the beach where you can beach comb and pick up shells.
Bring your wetsuit if you want to swim, the water will be between 55 and 65 degrees!
Chances are you will see dolphins any time of the year as they do not migrate and absolutely love sailboats, swimming in front of the bow. It helps that we pay them to make appearances! View our gallery for more pictures of previous charters. Your Florida sailing charter will leave you with the best memories of sailing in the Gulf of Mexico. Add a Beach BBQ for even MORE FUN in the sun!
