2014: OUR 11th YEAR.

WELLFLEET CHARTERS AND LESSONS
(As seen in Boston Magazine June, 2012 issue.  See 3PM, Saturday recommendation)

Daysail-in lovely Wellfleet Harbor with a licensed captain as your guide.
Most days we tack upwind toward the prevailing southwesterly to Jeremy Point on Great Island, real sailing with boat heeling, wind, and spray flying.  Or
we might gunkhole in the waters of Blackfish Creek, or the Herring River Estuary.  Take the tiller or relax on our Mariner sloop, perfect for the shallows of Wellfleet Harbor. 
Fully retractable keel and rudder lets us land right on the beach. 


Go ashore-on Jeremy Point for a picnic, gathering shells, or a swim in warm water, see the seal pups play
(see Destinations link on left for pictures).    Learn about the flora, fauna and history of Cape Cod from your captain. 

Seal Watching-If seals are present at Jeremy Point we can sail around with the seals and get as close as legally possible, and watch them jump and play.  Sometimes they chase the boat and come close.  In 2012 we even saw a Humpback Whale in Wellfleet Harbor, but that was rare. Also saw a big Basking Shark.  Great Whites are on the ocean side.
 
Downwind sail home-
Most days sailing downwind the boat is level, the apparent wind is low, and it offers a relaxing ride back to the harbor; A good time for snacks and drinks  Perhaps even drop in a fishing line and catch a bluefish.   Often we fly the spinnaker in light winds back to the marina, which offers the beautiful sight of the parachute-like sail, much photographed in sail photography.   But if the wind pipes up watch out!  It's a Nantucket sleighride without the harpooned whale!

WELLFLEET SUNSET CHARTERS

Sunset sail-up the coast to historic Blackfish Creek, site of the former South Wellfleet schooner harbor, and grounding location of pilot whales, then across the harbor to Great Island.  Sail along the shore and into the gorgeous Herring River mouth (tide permitting) to watch the beautiful sunset over the diminutive sand dunes where Great Island connects to Chequesset Neck.  Then sail back to the harbor as the sky darkens with orange, pink, and violet colors.  Most days the wind is more gentle in the evening.
