FOR THE MORE ADVENTUROUS:  And for those that want to experience an overnight stay on Caladesi Island at the State Park... Captain D has got the ultimate package for you and your friends or family.  Caladesi Island is one of the greatest beaches in America (even having won highest accolades over some of the finest Hawaiian beaches)!  To stay the night on this island/ beach, one must posses a boat.  Folks visit all the time by ferry but typically stay only a few hours.  Now you too can have access to the island... think of this package as a vacation home on a deserted isle ! 

What do you get?  What do you need to bring? Is the Captain staying?

  • Pack for an overnighter; be sure to provision accordingly with drinks, groceries and your swim trunks and pajamas .  
  • We leave 11am from port 
  • The captain provides up to 4 hours of sailing / shore excursion anywhere along the area we typically travel (see our maps)
  • By about 4pm we arrive and dock the vessel at Caladesi Island State Park
  • From this moment you are on "island time".  Stay on the boat, sunbathe on the dock next to the boat, walk to Caladesi Beach, stroll the miles of trails in the park, paddle board the mangroves (we provide the SUPs), grill under the pavillions and use the park picnic tables. There is a park ranger onsite 24/7 for emergencies. 
  • Captain D will be departing you shortly after getting you settled (by way of jetski).  The vessel will remain tied up securely to the floating dock .. and the keys to the motor leave with the captain... lol 
  • Captain D will return by 9am the following morning to prepare for a 10am departure and 11am return to port where we started. 
  • Limited to two adult couples or one family of 2 adults and 3 children maximum, due to interior space. Adults must be age 25 or older.
  • Pricing is all inclusive of skippered sailing, use of the yacht overnight on the island, island admission and utilities included along with use of two paddle boards.  Food and personal provisions and any use of services on the island including at the burger hut/ store are not included.
  • Yes... we have air conditioning on board !
  • Cost for this package is USD$1,300.00 .  $500 refundable reservation/ security deposit is also required at time of booking.
