Cast off the lines…and cast your cares to the wind!
Join Capt. Bud aboard the 35-ft. sailing catamaran Old Glory for relaxing private charter cruises, sunset cruises, and coastal tours of Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach, Estero Island and more.
See the Sanibel Island Light at Pt. Ybel, cruise past the fishing pier on Fort Myers Beach, or head out to sea and really get away from it all.
Take a sunset cruise and marvel at the splendor of light and color reflected on the clouds and on the water …truly breathtaking!
Lounge with your friends and family on the bow trampoline with a cold drink under the warm Southwest Florida sun and listen to the water flowing by underneath you. Or hang out with Capt. Bud in the shade at the stern lounge and watch us trim the sails and operate the vessel. All you have to do is kick back and relax.
In the summer months, thrill the kids with a tube ride behind the boat. Or ask us to drop the anchor near the beach and go for a swim or wade ashore to go shelling…or to grab lunch!
What we do on your private cruise is completely up to you!
Our catamaran is nearly 33% wider than a comparably sized, traditional monohull sailboat. Giving you much more space to stretch out and relax without ever feeling crowded.
And unlike typical sailboats that heel over sharply when the wind picks up, Old Glory remains mostly level under all wind conditions, providing a safe, level, and comfortable cruise.
