Sailing Adventures offers a variety of sailing charters, and truly designs packages suited to your level of skill, experience, and desire. We really do customize each charter for you. If you're new to sailing perhaps a 1/2 day or full day of sailing would suit your tastes. You'll have a Captain and First Mate hosting your voyage. You're welcome to participate as much or as little as you like in the sailing. Sailing is a joy and a passion! Recently, Beula Lee hosted a "Sunset Engagement Surprise" for Craig and Holly who flew down from frosty Ohio for this special romantic Valentine's occasion. It would be our pleasure to teach you some basic sailing or to facilitate a day of relaxation as we explore the waters both in one of the loveliest dolphin playgrounds in the United States and as we sail along the beautiful Gulf Coast. Strengthen those sailing skills that you need the most! See our web site for a list of skills we can teach you! If learning to sail is your dream ... with our 25 years of sailing instruction ... we can design a hands on program catered to your interests. We'll teach you to handle the helm (steering), to know when to tack and jibe, to hoist, set and trim the sails. You'll learn about wind direction and it's influence upon the sails and why the boat moves with the wind. We normally can accomplish this introduction to sailing in one day on the water. For more experienced sailors planning to charter a boat in the Caribbean, for example, we can teach you how to approach and secure a mooring using the boat's own momentum and responses to wind and current. Would you like to learn to read local charts to plan your trip? And we will teach you how to operate a GPS, radar, chart plotter, and VHF radio. We'll help you fill in the gaps in your sailing experience and education while you have fund building up your sailing skills inventory. A day of peace on the water, a day of learning to manage a luxurious sailing vessel, or any combination of the above is possible for your voyage. Your Captain: U.S.-Coast-Guard-Licensed Captain Elizabeth has been a sailing instructor for 34 years, and races and cruises regularly. Professional sailing has taken her from Connecticut to California, Tennessee, and Florida. She's also a licensed massage therapist. Her background includes a BA from Occidental College and she is working on a master's in Transpersonal Psychology. Elizabeth has a strong interest in team building / adventure-based counseling and education.

Wind, waves & wonderful friends made a daytime sailing trip a fantastic memory. Captain Elizabeth entertained with conversation, scenery, stories & allowed us to be part of the sailing experience. Her knowledge & skill with the boat made the time relaxing, enjoyable & seemingly too short. We look forward to sail with her again!

Captain Elizabeth was a first class hostess with an incredible afternoon sailing. The Yacht is very comfortable and we could not have asked for better service. An afternoon of sailing and laughing never gets old. Thank you for the Sailing lessons as well.

Capt Liz is an outstanding captain and delivers a fantastic charter experience. She did a great job of sizing our small party, magically ordered up perfect sailing winds, clear skies, and sunshine!

Captain Elizabeth was very accessible and helped us set up a spur-of-the-moment cruise for 2 couples. We brought wine and food to snack on. We watched the sun set at sea, then returned to Naples.
