This is a family friendly sightseeing tour boat operation. All on board activities must be G rated. While your group may not include children there are families with children on other vessels on the water.

The private sleeping cabins (beds) are not available for use during day tours, except for a small child to nap. Use of the galley for food storage and head (lavatory) is permitted.

Therefore to maintain the cleanliness of the interior we ask that all serving, eating and drinking be done outside in the cockpit or on deck.

Your Cruise

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,
Soft Drinks, Starbucks Coffee, Selection of Fine Teas, Plates, Cups, Cutlery, Napkins, Paper Towels, Trash Bags, Basic Spices, Bar B Que Grill, Gas Stove and Oven, Cooler, Refrigerator, Blue Tooth Speaker, Deck Chairs, Snorkel Gear, Pool Noodles.

Your are welcome to bring any food items you wish and use the on board facilities for cooking or we can cater for you and the Captain is always happy to assist with the Bar-B-Que.

We look forward to having you aboard !!

    I chartered this boat specifically because Capt Jules was willing to let me take the helm to practice my newly acquired skipper/captain ASA skills on his 38ft cruiser.

    Capt Jules, runs a tight operation. He is thorough with this pre-sail safety checklist, he gives a thorough orientation of his boat, and finally, he is a wonderful and patient Captain/Instructor, in that he fielded all of my sailing questions and let me correct my mistakes when I caused the sails to luff.

    The Pelican is a wonderful vessel and Capt. Jules keeps it in mint condition so you don't have to worry about weak fraying lines or missing parts... the rigging is solid!

    Many thanks to Capt Jules for a great time at sea! I'm already planning to book another sail with him in the Fall.

    Very impressive boat and Captain. The Pelican is the finest maintained sailboat that we have ever been on. Captain Jules is personable and professional. He explained every aspect of sailing, safety rules/issues, and impressed our two grandchildren and their parents. We dodged thunderstorms and rain showers for the first three hours and did not see the sunset due to weather but the last hour was spectacular… Miami skyline at night and the cool breeze made for a memorable sail. We’ll be back!

    Jules was amazing! Quick to get back to you for any questions, flexible for our unique needs (he coordinated an entire proposal with my now fiancé ahead of our departure time), and professional throughout our entire trip. His boat is beautiful, well maintained and very clean! He had a cooler full of ice, water, and Gatorade for us to keep us hydrated and the most comfortable lounge chairs so we can tan and hang out in the front of the boat. I would recommend him to anyone looking to book on Sailo, he is a real professional and pretty much guaranteed to have a great time! Thank you Jules~

    Captain Jules made our experience unforgettable! He was very easy to communicate with from the time of booking and during the trip and was quick to respond to any questions we had. We planned a sunset cruise and it did not disappoint! Would hands-down recommend this booking to anyone who lives in or is visiting Miami!

    Had a great 6 hour cruise with Jules. Winds were pretty light so sailing was challenging. We motored out of the bay, saw some sights along the way, and find a few chances to sail once in the ocean. Very well maintained boat, very clean, very prepared.

    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!!!

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.
