We had an amazing afternoon on the catamaran! Capt. Potter was very knowledgeable and a great host! The views were awesome and we had a blast kayaking, shelling, and snorkeling.

Sounds like you were on our Big Pass Adventure from our downtown Sarasota location? Our "Adventure" sails are second in popularity only to our nightly sunset sails. They are half day trips including sailing, swimming, kayaking and shelling. Simple pleasures all. See you next trip.

As boat owners we might question the notion of owning one? More correctly the sanity of it? (Of course we are in the charter business, so we do have an agenda.) Boat ownership is a commitment to time and money (these days- a lot of...More

Once a month we are treated to the two ring celestial sideshow- the main event of Sunset AND the full Moonrise! A tangible reminder that life is "steady as she goes". You can set your watch by the movement of the heavenly bodies after all!...More

So glad you made the best of a breezy day. While helpful for sailing, wind does tend to stir the Gulf and reduce the famous clarity of her waters. We are in the weather business after all. Regardless of how hard we try, Mother Nature...More

Captn Steve was our guide for the day. He took us all over the sarasota pass and showed us a few stars homes. The mangroves are a must do. The sand bar was so much fun. We found tons of sand dollars.
