If you are unfamiliar with boating practices, let us know. We will accomodate you by providing educational resources prior or one of our expert captains for all or part of your trip. Our captains can join you aboard the Iris to ensure your safety, show you the ways of the sea and the yacht, and take you sailing to the best spots the area has to offer.
