The best day of your vacation will be spent cruising aboard your private sailing sloop, the New Moon ...The New Moon is a beautifully appointed, fully equipped 39 ft. sailing vessel with full facilities and enclosed head for your comfort. You'll see the islands from the fresh and exciting perspective of Gulf and Bay waters, the dolphins with their perpetual smiles, swimming beside the boat, the manatees barely showing themselves and the sea otters playing around the docks are all just a part of our world.

Captain Mick does an excellent job of teaching the art of sailing. We and our kids 21, 17, 15 each learned so much and had a great time. Sailing is so incredibly peaceful (no motor noise and so smooth). Would definitely do again!

Captain Mick put together a custom sunset cruise for the four of us at the last minute. He times it perfectly as we saw the sun set right in the middle of redfish pass between Captiva and North Captiva islands. He entertained us with his...More
