Pelican is a very well maintained 2008 Island Packet 370 that was built to ABYC Standards right here in Florida.

Your Cruise

Let us know what you are interested in seeing or doing and we can set up your cruise to your liking. We can spend all day away from the city or take a cruise by the downtown skyline and millionaires row. Reefs and wrecks are off shore so it requires a calm day with winds of less than 10 knots for it to be pleasant at those destinations.   Over 10 knots of wind off shore and the waves quickly increase and visibility becomes poor below the surface for snorkeling.   This boat is built to sail around the world in all weather, but you probably won't enjoy rough seas. Inside the bay we sail in winds of up to 30 knots.  In very light wind we can slowly ghost along or if we have a destination in mind we can motor sail to make good time. Charter start time is flexible, let us know what works best for you and we will accommodate. For instance if you want a full day sail with the sunset included we can start at noon and end at 8:00 PM.  Night sailing is very pleasant as well.

Captain Jules was knowledgeable on weather and the bay! The weather looked horrible and he told us that everything was going to be fine and surely enough it was! He was nice and friendly and we enjoyed the time spent on his beautiful boat!
