What you'll do

During this experience, you will board an amazing sailing yacht and enjoy 2 hours of sailing.
To start with, we will do a safety briefing and then, we will be off to explore the shoreline of Westbrook CT. Off the coast are two very special islands that are now protected bird sanctuaries. Lots of Osprey, Blue Heron, Egrets, American Oyster Catchers and many more birds can be seen only there! An occasional seal might pop up for a look at us!
You can sit back, relax and watch the coast go by or jump in and help keep the boat sailing. If you've wanted to learn all about sailing but never had the opportunity, this is your chance! Alternatively, if you want some privacy, head to the bow with your favorite beverage and watch the coast go by.
All you will see is the water around you. All you will feel is the wind passing through you. Look down and be mesmerized by the sounds and the salt air.
Other things to note
Please use restrooms before your charter. Located across from Boom Restaurant.
Must have at least 2 people to book.

Ahoy! I'm Captain Joy!
I've had my sailing charter business since 2004 and, since then, I've been taking people on sailing excursions all summer long - I love it. Sailing is my passion and you, as a guest, can sit back, relax and watch the coast go by, or get involved and learn how to sail!
My first mate #scuppertheboatdog can't exactly pull ropes but he loves wrestling with one!

Where you'll be

The shoreline of Westbrook and Saybrook are lovely to view. Many nice waterfront homes. You will see other boats cruising by. Have a wave while sipping your favorite beverage. Menunketesuck and Duck Islands are federally protected reserves. Only birds can enjoy these beautiful islands. We can sail quite close to have a look.

This experience was the most amazing experience that I had in a while, meaning I traveled through few countries and live in most countries and haven’t had a nice Sailing experience like I did with Captain Joy :) she’s a unique lady who has a lot of experience on her boat . She made it extra unique with having prepared all this yummy tapas food :) great laughter and awesome sunny day to go out on the ocean with my 2 year old baby boy. Her boat was really beautiful and clean. She had her small dog with her and he was well behaved. Thank you Joy , my family and I will be back on your boat
