Private Cruises vs. Sightseeing Tours: What's the Difference? 

Our private cruises offer maximum flexibility, allowing you to customize virtually every aspect of your catamaran sailing cruise, including: Departure time, cruise duration, itinerary, activities and more.

Your party of up to six (6) total passengers will have the boat all to yourselves (aside from the Captain and 1st Mate, of course, who will be  operating the vessel and letting you relax while underway). The private sailing cruise itineraries listed here are among our most popular, but they are only suggestions — we're happy to let you decide where we go and what we see and do within the duration of your cruise.

Keep in mind that if you wish to book a private cruise online and don't see a convenient departure time or duration that works best for you, just give us a call or send an email and we'll be happy to make arrangements (subject to availability).     

 

 

Old_Glory_Sailing_Catamaran_Check_Weather_Forecast_SAIL_SWFL_Cruises2. Check the weather & wind/sea conditions forecast for the day you plan to sail. 

Be sure to keep an eye on the weather as it gets closer to your reserved date. Wunderground.com is a great source of accurate forecast data

And be sure to check wind and sea conditions! On days when the wind is too strong or the water is too rough, we will not go out. 

Windfinder is a great app for checking wind strength and direction; it also gives you the waves heights and tons of other great, useful info. 

 

CHECK CURRENT CONDITIONS

  

10-20 knots of wind is our "sweet spot" for sailing...anything less can still provide a very relaxing sail, we just won't be moving very fast. More than 20-25 knots of wind speed means we'll have to either reduce sail (reef) or not sail at all and run the boat's twin diesel engines instead. 

In the event of high winds (above 25 knots sustained wind speed) or dangerous, foul weather (squalls, thunderstorms) we will have to reschedule your cruise for another time. If you can't make it out with us another day and you've paid in advance, refunds are provided. 

Learn more about our weather policies by reading our blog post, "'Weather' We Sail or Not" here.
