Naples sailing

Hey guys-

I lived in Naples for a number of years and as far as inland saltwater sailing goes there isn't any. There is an intracoastal that runs for miles but too narrow for any sailing. You would have to venture out into the gulf. Unless of course you are talking about dinghy sailing. I don't know of any charters.

Ditto Jeff's advice. Charters are all out of Tampa/St. Pete area. Left Coast ICW is both narrow and SHOAL with low bridges. Smaller sailboats only!
As for sailing...you CAN have a nice overnight trip to the Keys but there is very little coastal day sailing. Good spots are further north...Ft. Myers/Sanibel etc. & of course Tampa area.

While we're on this topic, I'll jump in and ask another question. I'm in the process of moving down to Naples and am looking for a place to put my boat. Preferably on a mooring, as it's a Cat and I know berths are expensive there.
I wouldn't mind going up to Ft. Myers as I figure it's cheaper and opportunities are more plentiful there.

Thanks,

Sally

We sailed this area for a couple of months last year. Check out www.sail-marco.com or google "kahuna sailing" for charters. That should be a start. We picked up a ball at Ft. Myers Beach at Salty Sams Marina and enjoyed that but this was our first time living on the boat so everything was new and semi-exciting. Good luck!

I understand that there were so many problems at Salty Sam's...the town has awarded the mooring ball franchise to the marina on the other side of the harbor...forget the name right now but would do some searchs on Salty Sam's before doing any business with them.

Punta Gorda - Ft. Myers Area Charter Co

Gary:
Just back from Fl trip.........ended up taking some friends out on a very short small boat sail ..................but larger boats avail & nice ones too. Very professional co/staff............you will need time to do Check-out & skills test depending on boat selection................definitely would use them if I needed a boat...............much closer to Naples than Tampa.

Good Luck
