The best day of your vacation will be spent cruising aboard your private sailing sloop, the New Moon ...The New Moon is a beautifully appointed, fully equipped 39 ft. sailing vessel with full facilities and enclosed head for your comfort. You'll see the islands from the fresh and exciting perspective of Gulf and Bay waters, the dolphins with their perpetual smiles, swimming beside the boat, the manatees barely showing themselves and the sea otters playing around the docks are all just a part of our world.

We had a nice sail on the New Moon. The boat is an old classic vessel and it needs some repairs and spiffing up, but she sailed nicely. The Captain was nice and settled in after a bit. The sunset was amazing.

Captain Mick was right on time even thought he was recovering from being ill. He was very patient teaching a first-time sailor who has trouble knowing his right from his left. Very enjoyable experience.
