"There are no stupid questions." -Unknown

Some people have asked me, "What is a sailing charter?"  The answer is, it is a (simply) purchased scheduled sailboat ride!  I, Captain Louis offers sailboat rides as a service.  All boats are considered to sail when they cast off and leave port, however, from a sailboat perspective, when the sails are hoisted, we are sailing.  Fishing charters are another example, a captain offers his/her service taking folks out on the water to fish from the boat.  We charter the sailboat.

The service I provide is taken in aboard JULIE ANN, a 36ft. sloop, together we enjoy a sailing experience on our daily sail or a picturesque sunset sail.*


Price for up to 4 people for 3+ hours is $400.00.   (I am licensed to take up to 6 people but I try to avoid overcrowding for comfort and enjoyment.)

We begin boarding 30 minutes before we cast off.  Everyone should be present 15 min. prior to cast off for the orientation.

Please call to make reservations at least 24 hours in advance so we can make the weather work in our favor.

  • Proposals, weddings, baptisms,,, we accommodate most ceremonies!

  • Entertain your clients aboard our vessel, a 2 hour sailing excursion could help bring business owner and client closer together when bonding and trust is well appreciated.


Let's go sailing and enjoy the day and learn something about sailing, about each other, about life.  Let's have some fun.
