SPEND THE NIGHT AT SEA
If you’re looking for a unique way to spend the evening, a night at sea may be just up your alley. Guests can choose between seven luxury yachts, selecting one that fits their needs. Set sail as early as 10:30 am and stretch your sea legs on board the vessel of your choice. Your highly trained crew will set a course for a truly memorable experience. See the sights of historic St. Augustine, keep an eye out for wildlife, like dolphins and turtles, or kick back and enjoy the wind in your hair. Savor the sunset over the cityscape and bask in the sublime quiet of the evening.
WHERE IS THE BOAT GOING TO BE?
For a night at the dock,the boat returns to our homeport of Camachee CoveYacht Harbor.“Chamachee Cove is a quiet marina, it’s so peaceful,” says Rose Ann Points, owner and captainat St. Augustine Sailing. “It’s so nice sitting in the cockpit and watching a sunset or sunrise.Thestillness of the water, the calming rhythms of boatsat the dock, it’s almost meditative.”Guests can also arrange an overnight stay away from the dock. “Our staff will secure a mooringnorth of the Bridge of Lions andyou’ll spend the night nestledalong the downtown waterfront,”smilesRose Ann.“Your professional captain will ensure that the boat isset for the evening andretire to their quarters, separate and secluded from your cabin.They’ll monitor the vessel, so allyou need to do isenjoy yourevening!”
WHAT’S THE SETUP?
The layout depends upon which vessel you choose, but each will have a cabin that accommodates two, a salon or common room area, a cockpit for enjoying the fresh air, a restroom with a shower (it’s called a head onboard), and a galley (you may know it as the kitchen), complete with a refrigerator. Three out of our seven vessels have generators; those with generators will have the ability to have air conditioning or heat if you select to be anchored instead of berthed at the marina.
ARE THERE FACILITIES ON BOARD?
All of our vessels have heads, also known as bathrooms, on board. You’ll be able to take a hot shower, brush your teeth and use the facilities just as you would on land. Guests choosing to stay overnight at the dock will have access to the well-maintained marina restrooms if they prefer and the swimming pool.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING?
ADD THE ST AUGUSTINE SAILING TOUCH WITH SOME LUXURIOUS EXTRAS!
We offer a multitude of extravagant upgrades to make your night at the sea just as luxurious as a four-star hotel. Guests can add dinner or brunch on board, prepared by a private chef, appetizers, sumptuous charcuterie boards and beverages, like beer, wine and soft drinks. “My favorite enhancement is brunch on board,” reveals Rose Ann. “When brunch is added on to the overnight experience, we’ll leave the dock at 10am for a morning sail. You enjoy the scenery while we prepare and serve brunch. Your private vessel returns to the dock at 12:00 pm for a 12:30 check-out.
