On Your Day Of Sailing

To make this experience more enjoyable for you, we would like to make a few suggestions:

Guest may simply sit and relax while dolphin spotting or bird watching. Many Guest enjoy taking a turn at the wheel, steering the boat.

The boat is equipped with a lower salon with table and seating, forward and aft bunks, marine head (toilet), full kitchen, running water, decks for lounging or walking and cockpit seating for six with a sun Bimini.

All Guest and Students are asked to wear appropriate clothing and shoes for the current weather condition. We recommend sun screen, sun glasses and hats for sunny days and jackets for cooler days and evenings. In addition to the above, Students will need rain gear and sailing gloves. Please NO leather or black-soled shoes.

Water and soft drinks are provided for Guest. Guest may bring aboard their own food or liquor; refrigeration is available.

Students will need to bring a lunch to eat aboard but no liquor will be allowed during instruction.

Your charter begins at the time agreed on at the dock. You will be back to the dock at the end of your charter. Please be on time for your charter as there may be another charter after yours. Other times may be available.

Other times may be available for private instruction.

Enjoy your sail

Fair Winds
Capt. Mickey
Nauti Clew

We were schooner-rigged and rakish with a long and lissome hull,
And we flew the pretty colors of the crossbones and the skull.

We'd a big black jolly roger flapping grimly at the fore,
And we sailed the spanish waters in the happy days of yore.

We'd a long brass gun amidships like a well-conducted ship,
We had each a brace of pistols and a cutlass at the hip.

It's a point which tells against us and a fact to be deplored,
But we chased the goodly merchantmen and laid their ships aboard.

Then the dead men fouled the scuppersand the wounded filled the chains.
The paint-work all was splattered with other peoples brains.

She was boarded, she was looted she was scuttled till she sank,
And the pale survivors left us by the medium of the plank.

Ah! the pig-tailed, quidding pirates and the pretty pranks we played,
All have since been put a stop to by the naughty Board of Trade.

The schooners and their merry crews are laid away to rest,
A little south the sunset in the Island of the blest.

Your Adventure Awaits at the historic Port díHiver Bed and Breakfast Inn, an old Florida luxury at its finest.

A comfortable yet elegant retreat across the street from the Atlantic Ocean, Port díHiver is a romantic Melbourne Beach Inn with gorgeous ocean views, large private porches, a bubbling spa pool and winding brick paths through a private compound of four island style buildings, all surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.

Normally, your sailing experience will be in the Indian River. The Indian River begins south of Daytona Beach and ends north of West Palm Beach. Our cruising area is from Cocoa Beach south to Vero Beach. Most day cruises are in the Melbourne area.
