We sail in north Biscayne Bay outside of the national park and also inside of the national park.
The "Pelican" is one of only three sailboats permitted to offer charters in Biscayne National Park. Non permitted vessels are subject to eviction from the Park by National Park Police terminating your tour and escorting you out of the park.
"Pelican" is a first class yacht in excellent condition. You won't be disappointed.
Captain Jules C. Robinson has 25 years sailing experience and holds U.S. Coast Guard OUPV and Master 50 Ton ratings. Vessel is insured for charter.
All charters subject to terms in "Pelican" Charter Contract.
We offer year round Sailing on Miami's emerald green and turquoise waters aboard a beautiful Island Packet 370 Sailing Yacht. Get the rest and relaxation you deserve, whether it's a scenic six hour trip to snorkel the wrecks and reefs, a spectacular four hour sunset / night skyline sail or an adventurous eight hour Boca Chita Island / Biscayne National Park sail, we have an outing tailored to meet everyone's desires and budget.
Our photo album shows the excellent condition of the vessel and the types of activities one can expect. Let us know what you are interested in seeing or doing and we can set up your cruise to your liking, We can spend all day away from the city or take a cruise by the downtown skyline and millionaires row. Reefs and wrecks are off shore so it requires a calm day with winds of less than 10 knots for it to be pleasant at those destinations. Over 10 knots of wind off shore and the waves quickly increase and visibility becomes poor below the surface for snorkeling. This boat is built to sail around the world in all weather, but you probably won't enjoy rough seas. Inside the bay we sail in winds of up to 30 knots. On days of very light wind we can slowly ghost along or if we have a destination in mind we can motor sail to make good time. Charter start time is flexible, let us know what works best for you and we will accommodate. For instance if you want a full day sail with the sunset included we can start at noon and end at 8: PM. Night sailing is very pleasant as well.
Looking forward to having you aboard !!

About our boat:

Pelican is a very well maintained 2008 Island Packet 370 that was built to ABYC Standards right here in Florida. Island Packet Yachts was featured in Volume II of Ferenc Mate's renowned book "The Worlds Best Sailboats". Its superior craftsmanship and heavy build is obvious as soon as you step aboard, you won't be disappointed. Our photo album shows the excellent condition of the vessel and the types of activities one can expect.
Captain Jules was fantastic with great communication setting up the charter and accomidating us. The sailing was perfect and made some wonderful memories for my girlfriend and myself. The Pelican is a beautiful boat, very clean and well maintained. It was an absolute pleasure to sail aboard her.
Jules was amazing: an immaculate, well appointed yacht. I will be proud to take any group onto his yacht again in the future, which I plan to do. Jules is a capable, knowledgeable, and skilled single handed skipper - able to dock and handle his boat by himself, allowing the clients to relax and enjoy the sail.
The yacht was provisioned with all the equipment we needed to prepare, serve and enjoy our BYOBeverages & Food.
Spotless, clean, professional.
We will be back!
