How are we different?

Peace and Quiet... Unlike other charters, there is no loud, smelly diesel engine so you may actually hear dolphin before you even see them.

Privacy... Just you and your guests on board.

Custom... We tailor your adventure to fit your wishes. We'll help you plan your day--your way.

Shade... Our cockpit seating is fully covered to provide plenty of shade.

Shelter... If it rains we still shine down below in our spacious and comfortable below deck salon.

Luxury... The Dolphin Watch is a very comfortable, beautifully maintained 2014 Jeanneau 409--truly a seaworthy cruising yacht.

Your Tunes... Bring your own play list (mp3 on a thumb drive) or just enjoy the sound of the wind and waves.

We Sail... Yes we actually turn the motor off and sail. No motoring around with the sails flopping for us.

FREE PARKING... right at the dock.


Plan your Adventure...
Entertain clients, celebrate a special event, family outing, pop the question, exchange the rings, renew the vows. Whatever your pleasure, we will help you plan an enjoyable adventure. Professional catering and photography services are available for an additional fee.


2 - Hour Adventure - NEW!

For those who want to experience sailing on the Gulf waters while watching for dolphin (along with many other creatures of the sea). Time will pass quickly, but we can extend your cruise if you wish and as our schedule will permit.

Sunset Cruise

2 ½ hr. Includes a complementary Champaign Toast to the setting sun. We start out 2 - hours before sunset and return about 1/2 - hour after sunset. A truly awesome experience and a perfect setting to 'pop the question'.

4 - Hour Adventure

Our most popular adventure--a Family Favorite. We'll sail anywhere you like (within reason and the allotted time of course). Be ready to picnic or party--lower your stress or raise your spirits. A true memory-making experience.

6 - Hour Adventure

Plenty of time to see dolphin, cruise, swim, relax, enjoy. A Bachelorette Party Favorite. Quite often we'll find ourselves in the middle of a pod that want to ride in our bow wake. Great traveling companions!

8 - Hour Adventure

For the serious sailors, Dolphin Watch'ers, partiers and gracious hosts. We'll go anywhere you wish within reason as weather and time permits. Treat your clients or employees to a day on the water--a wonderful 'team building' experience. Your sales prospects will be 'captivated' ;-)

You take the helm under the direction and guidance of one of the most experienced sailing instructors around.

We live in a Sail Boater's Paradise. It would be a pleasure to share that experience with you.

We have fun making sure you have fun!

The Dolphin Watch is a very comfortable, beautifully maintained 2014 Jeanneau 409 sailing yacht.  At just over 40 ft it is capable of accommodating 10 passengers, however for your comfort and enjoyment we recommend no more than 6.

Unlike other charters, we have immediate access to the Gulf of Mexico and are cruising in a matter of minutes.

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
