Join us for an ‘AYE CAPTAIN!’ 4 hr cruise (Mon-Fri; morning or afternoon) aboard Therapy 43' sailboat or Irie Vibes 34' powerboat. Become a 'captain' for the day, all while having fun on the bay! This program creates the opportunity for 'young sailors' to learn how to raise a sail, steer a boat and navigate on the water. The experience working as a team builds confidence and motivation. Our ‘AYE CAPTAIN!’ program includes a brief lesson on Chesapeake Bay history, the Thomas Point Lighthouse with wildlife views of ospreys, blue herons and (we hope!) bald-eagles.
Activities & Itinerary
Cruises leave the Londontowne Marina and sail the South River. Boats anchor in Harness Creek for snacks and beverages, and depending on age and capability, kids can enjoy swimming, paddle boarding and socializing. We take 6 kids per boat or up to 12 kids for our Sail & Powerboat Adventure! package. Our ‘AYE CAPTAIN!’ program is booked as groups of 6 kids minimum.
We provide fruit, cheese and cracker try, with soft drinks and lemonade. You are welcome to bring your own picnic basket and cooler, or you can also order from our mouth-watering Islan' Grill Kitchen menu.
