What you'll do

Upon boarding our 36ft Sailing Yacht Calypos, you will instantly slip into island time. Enjoy a refreshing beverage as we slip from the constraints of the dock and everyday stress. Soon after leaving the Yacht club, the sails will be unfurled and you will soon be gliding with the wind. Be on the look out for marine life such as dolphins and manatees. Work the lines to help harness the wind, take the helm to steer, or just sit back and relax. Our captain can help you understand the sea fairing art of sailing across the seas, while also entertaining you with the deep history of the area. After time slips away while sightseeing, indulge in some tasty hors d'oeuvres. Top off your sunset or day sail with a sundowner cocktail as we slowly bring you back to the constraints of the dock.

During the month of December, during our evening cruises, we will be touring the Christmas Lights of the Punta Gorda Isles Canals. This is a yearly tradition and a beautiful time to relax and sip on some hot cider and listen to Christmas Caroling. If you would like this option, please select the 6pm Cruise.

Where you'll be

Upon leaving the yacht club, we will sail south westward. We will begin our journey where the Peace River and Myakka River join. This is the beginning of a large body of water, know as the Charlotte Harbor. This harbor extends over 20 nautical miles to the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy exploring areas such as Alligator Bay, Locust Point, Gasparilla Sound, Hog Island, Fisherman's Village and many more.

Wow we cannot stress enough how accommodating Zach and Captain Eddy were!! Great stories, wonderful views of the sunset in the wind with some sail rustle thrown in with your choice of tunes! The canal light tours for the holiday season is a must and if you want to sail and do a good light tour plan 2 hours for each part of the trip on the boat. Or you might not get much real sail time in. We could have not asked for a better complete sail out to grab awesome sunshine, sea stories and sunset pictures. The boat was 40ft and a bit , plenty of space for our family of 5 and 4 more would have easily been comfortably possible. The Sea Dancer was her name and she had 2 masts. Zach fufilled our personal requests be sure to tell him if you need any special food or drink. He is a super host with a passion for others enjoyment! The canal tour we could have done even longer as there are so many to see, nice a slow lighted homes and boats! The canal light tour and sail was the best part of our ten day Airbnb stay in Punta Gorda says my kids and the boss!!

We truly enjoyed our outing with Captain Frank and Skipper Dennis! True Gents that knew the ropes (no pun intended) when it comes to sailing. We had a hard time saying goodbye. We will be back.

The Christmas light tour was chilly, but worth the sights. The experience of the crew was expertise and fun.
