Pelican is a very well maintained 2008 Island Packet 370 that was built to ABYC Standards right here in Florida.

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. In 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 8:00 PM. Night sailing is very pleasant as well.
What is included:
Coast Guard Licensed Captain, Required Safety Equipment, Charter Insurance, Fuel, Ice, Bottled Water,

The trip was magnificent and Captain Jules was a great host, we spent a good day sailing and in Boca Chita island. Also, Captain Jules is really good to converse about sailing and any other topics in English and Spanish, really recommend Captain Jules as a great sailor to spend a fun day sailing with him.
Captain Jules was incredible. Felt like we’ve known him for years. Didn’t even have to tell him where we wanted to go, he knew the best places to take us. I am looking forward to sailing with Captain Jules again very soon!
Cruise with Captain Jules and Pelican was the best of the best experience during our stay in Miami, you won't miss it, Pelican will bring you into a fairy tale moment where all the thing around you would look like so unsurreal, even magic, i had the best sunset abroad with me on the sundeck. If you're like us looking for a luxury fantastic cruise experience but on a PAYABLE price, definitely you should let Captain Jules take you. I really look forward to repeat it again very soon! Bon Voyage!!!
