Sailing Charter Excursions

Our 4-hour half day excursions! Only $250.00

Morning Excursions

Cast off at 7:00 am and experience the wildlife waking up! Mornings are perfect for the bird watcher. Watch our feathered friends as they arrive at their feeding areas. In most cases the winds are lighter in the mornings, so the ride is like sailing over a mill pond as the world comes to life.

Mid-day Excursions

Cast off at 12:00 pm and get ready to experience sailing at its highest! Generally, with the heat of the day the winds pick-up a bit. Here we take flight over the water with only the sound of the wind and water rushing by as you experience picture postcard scenes of yesteryear.

Evening Excursions

Cast off at 5:00 pm for a romantic sunset cruse. There is nothing like the sunsets on Matlacha. Imagine you and your lover sipping champagne as Captain Karl glides his craft along the shores as the birds come home to roost. The sun touched the water as the sky explodes with color and the world smiles as another day comes to an end.
