Sarasota Yacht Charters
Sarasota Yacht Charters
Nothing is more fun than an impromptu Sarasota yacht charter. We had been having cold fronts and lots of rain in Southwest Florida so last Saturday, when the skies cleared and the Gulf was nice and calm, we took our family along with a bunch of new friends from Sarasota out on our 45 foot Carver Voyager yacht, the "Reel Keel" for a full day tour. One really great thing about our Sarasota yacht charters is that we will pick you up in our super stretch limousine within a 60 mile radius of Englewood FL for free! Once our guests boarded, within minutes we were riding through Lemon Bay looking for wildlife in the mangroves which is always fun and exciting! Today, we spotted several Snowy Egrets, a Blue Heron, and several huge Pelicans. As we cruised through Lemon Bay, we also spotted several Bald Eagle nests perched high in the trees.
We anchored near Stump Pass Beach State Park to relax, catch a few rays, and do some fishing. After sitting there a few hours, a few people decided they wanted to take our motorized dinghy and go to shore so our dogs could play and run a bit. Dogs are not allowed at Stump Pass Beach State park but there are many other "unnamed islands" right around the area. The problem that day was we arrived at high tide so they didn't have many shallow beach areas close to where we had anchored the yacht. Undaunted, the father and young daughter went exploring in the lush mangroves around Lemon Bay until they found a spot the dogs could run and play.
Meanwhile, back on the yacht, the rest of our group was being entertained by a dolphin that was surfacing right behind the swim platform. Several in the group quickly pulled out their cameras and this particular dolphin seemed to be putting on a special performance much to our delight. On the bow of the yacht, several guys were trying their luck with their rods and reels....finally catching a Sheepshead. It was a slow and tranquil kind of a day with no one feeling much of a hurry to do anything in particular. In fact, one in our group felt like taking a afternoon nap so I showed her down to the master suite. That's the great thing about a yacht charter. You have all the comforts of home while out on the water and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Our guest awoke a few hours later very refreshed. Her daughter and husband were returning on the dinghy with the dogs after their private tour of the mangroves.
Sarasota Yacht charters can be a very relaxing experience for larger groups since people can basically do whatever they want. This day, some wanted to explore, one wanted to nap, others wanted to take pictures and get some sun, while others wanted to fish. Up in the flybridge, a few guys were having Bloody Mary's and chatting. Remember, we provide free limousine transfers on any of our full day Sarasota yacht charters in our Chrysler 300 Super Stretch within a 60 mile radius of Manasota Key so indulging in a few of your favorite adult beverages is never problem.
