How long is a half-day boat rental?

    Sailing Charter On 39' Catalina Sailboat In Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    Sailing with Captain Charlie was our group's first time sailing. To say we had an ideal first experience is an understatement. Captain Charlie was down to earth, super knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor. My fiance thoroughly enjoyed her birthday, as did the rest of us onboard. We'll definitely book again. Don't hesitate... Just BOOK!

    Great experience. Crew made the trip. I highly recommend the yacht, The Quiet place. The crew also shared inside info about the homes and yachts in the area. We chartered for 3 hours and that was perfect. Thank you Jessie and crew!

    Sailing Charter On 39' Catalina Sailboat In Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    We Highly Recommend Captain Charles and his Good Ship Daffy. He is a true 'old salt' who wants nothing more than to share his love of sailing. We wanted to take the helm on our trip so we just asked and received friendly instruction. We also wanted to kick back and take in the sights of Ft Lauderdale. So we met Charlie at his dock right on the river and powered through the most upscale part of town while sipping our favorite beverages. We continually enjoyed courtesy and good humor. We didn't expect to be waited on hand and foot, but to come away with a memory of the city as well as a love of the sea. We were not disappointed. Greg & Shirley, Colorado

    I could not have asked for a better experience to celebrate my milestone birthday! Jessie and Captain Mike were gracious and accommodating. Great communication every step of the way. We had so much fun with them! The next time I book it will most definitely be on the Quiet Place!!
