Sailing Adventures offers a variety of sailing charters, and truly designs packages suited to your level of skill, experience, and desire. We really do customize each charter for you. If you're new to sailing perhaps a 1/2 day or full day of sailing would suit your tastes. You'll have a Captain and First Mate hosting your voyage. You're welcome to participate as much or as little as you like in the sailing. Sailing is a joy and a passion! Recently, Beula Lee hosted a "Sunset Engagement Surprise" for Craig and Holly who flew down from frosty Ohio for this special romantic Valentine's occasion. It would be our pleasure to teach you some basic sailing or to facilitate a day of relaxation as we explore the waters both in one of the loveliest dolphin playgrounds in the United States and as we sail along the beautiful Gulf Coast. Strengthen those sailing skills that you need the most! See our web site for a list of skills we can teach you! If learning to sail is your dream ... with our 25 years of sailing instruction ... we can design a hands on program catered to your interests. We'll teach you to handle the helm (steering), to know when to tack and jibe, to hoist, set and trim the sails. You'll learn about wind direction and it's influence upon the sails and why the boat moves with the wind. We normally can accomplish this introduction to sailing in one day on the water. For more experienced sailors planning to charter a boat in the Caribbean, for example, we can teach you how to approach and secure a mooring using the boat's own momentum and responses to wind and current. Would you like to learn to read local charts to plan your trip? And we will teach you how to operate a GPS, radar, chart plotter, and VHF radio. We'll help you fill in the gaps in your sailing experience and education while you have fund building up your sailing skills inventory. A day of peace on the water, a day of learning to manage a luxurious sailing vessel, or any combination of the above is possible for your voyage. Your Captain: U.S.-Coast-Guard-Licensed Captain Elizabeth has been a sailing instructor for 34 years, and races and cruises regularly. Professional sailing has taken her from Connecticut to California, Tennessee, and Florida. She's also a licensed massage therapist. Her background includes a BA from Occidental College and she is working on a master's in Transpersonal Psychology. Elizabeth has a strong interest in team building / adventure-based counseling and education.

Great Captain, great crew, very friendly and knowledgeable. They are now on our list of "Must Do" activities when we visit Naples. Our only regret is that, after 20+ years of visiting Naples, we only just now found Captain Elizabeth.

Our family of three had a great time sailing with Captain Elizabeth and First Mate Reggie. The weather was so beautiful and we were lucky to get to explore the waters on this wonderful sail boat. We learned a lot about the area and each got a turn on the wheel which was so much fun. Sailing lessons are also... More

What a great day of sailing with Captain Elizabeth in Naples. She and Marty made the day with their discussion while taking us sailing. If you are in the Naples area and looking for something to do one day I highly recommend having Naples Sailing Adventures talk you out!

I was looking for a non-commercial experience enjoying the open water and giving the friends I was traveling with for a girls weekend a true sailing experience -- as they had never been before. I found Captain Elizabeth here on Trip Advisor and I was thrilled to find out that she was available! We were running a little late for... More

We were visiting Naples and my girlfriend and I booked a 4 hour sail with Captain Elizabeth on August 18, 2016. I had sailed a bit before but my girlfriend had not and I wanted her to have a great experience on the hope we can go cruising together in the future. The first thing I noticed about Captain Elizabeth... More

A huge THANK YOU for a special time on the gulf with you and Bob. It was truly a luxury for our family and one I am glad we said yes to. We are grateful for the opportunity and feel blessed to have met you both. Beginning our vacation with a 4 hour sail set a tone for our time... More

I took my husband sailing for his birthday and we had a wonderful trip! We were able to bring champagne aboard and watch a gorgeous sunset. We saw tons of dolphin and one even swam with the boat! A must do! Captain Elizabeth is fantastic.

I took the instructional trip and my girlfriend and two kiddos joined us. We had the best time. The kids are still talking about the sailing adventure being the best part of our vacation. I have done several of these and this is by part the best.
