St. Augustine Sailing
One of the most beautiful ways to enjoy St.Augustine is from the water and nothing beats moving along under the power of the wind, watching the seabirds glide and dive, and listening for that “p-puff!” that announces dolphins playing or feeding nearby.
St. Augustine Sailing Charters leave from Camachee Yacht Harbor, a premier marina located on the inland side of the Vilano Bridge. The charters offer unique sailing experiences that are perfect for small groups, private parties, intimate events, or a get-away for two.
St. Augustine Sailing’s premium charters start with two-hours on the water and can include full-day or even overnight charters. Guests may opt to sail on the local rivers, the Intracoastal waterway, or on the Atlantic Ocean.
The boats include two open day-sailers, plus luxurious cruising mono-hulled sailboats and catamarans from 34 to 45 feet in length. Every charter is captained by an experienced and knowledgeable U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain
St.Augustine Sailing's Captained Charters Options
- Charters can be booked for daytime or evening sails.
- Private charters for two can offer romance on the water for a date night (or perhaps a surprise proposal.)
- Private charters can be undertaken to enjoy the St. Augustine waterfront, view the more natural areas along the Intracostal Waterway, or take an excursion out into the open ocean. (Ocean sails have a minimum of three hours.)
- Themed sailing parties can be booked to celebrate a birthday, bachelor or bachelorette weekend, or some other special event.
- Corporate charters can be used to undertake a bit of teambuilding or to reward a team for reaching their goal.
Every charter can be customized to include a wine tasting with St. Augustine Sailing’s Sommelier, a luxurious four-course dinner with an onboard Chef, or a decadent dessert sail.
Every member of the team at St. Augustine Sailing strives to provide each guest with a premier on-the-water sailing charter experience.

A.S.A. Sailing Lessons
St.Augustine Sailing, an American Sailing Association (A.S.A.) teaching center, offers classes for both beginners and more experienced sailors. Visitors who choose to include a day or two of sailing instruction to their itinerary will have a unique vacation and set themselves up for a lifetime of fun on the water.
St. Augustine Sailing provides basic sailing instruction for the person who wants to have enough skills to be able to crew for friends or in a local race. Classes are taught in forgiving, but responsive 20-foot open sailboats that are perfect for learning boat handling.
Additional classes on larger sloops offer more in-depth instruction for basic coastal cruising and basic bareboat chartering. Those who attain the highest level A.S.A. certificate can become certified bareboat skippers who can confidently take a boat on a week’s cruise, having learned the basics for navigating, provisioning, sailing off-shore, anchoring, and docking. St. Augustine Sailing also offers a special class for those who want to learn the intricacies of sailing a catamaran.
St. Augustine Sailing’s A.S.A. sailing lessons are limited to only 4 students per boat so that each has the opportunity to practice every skill.
Sailors with experience who want to captain their own vessel — without the hassle of owning a boat — will find that a SailTime Membership will get them out on the water in a new yacht on a schedule that works for them. SailTime members pay a monthly fee, schedule their chosen boat online, sail, clean it, and walk away until the next time. The St. Augustine Sailing team is happy to discuss SailTime Membership options.
Bareboat Sailing Charters
Experienced sailors who want to charter a boat for a particular day or week during their visit, will find that St. Augustine Sailing has a number of boats to choose from. Bareboaters are required to have the necessary skills and the St. Augustine Sailing Crew will assess their skills prior to the charter. Whether setting sail for the afternoon or a week-long adventure, St. Augustine is the perfect town for starting and ending a bareboat cruise on a boat from St.Augustine Sailing.
