We depart from the dock at the Harbour Inn and Marina in St Michaels and Capt. Iris gives a brief harbor tour. She talks about what you are seeing along the picturesque waterfront, the history of St Michaels and about the story of her grandfather's boat, Selina II. Then we depart the harbor and go out into the Miles River, put up sails, and follow the wind. You are welcome to participate as a working crew member, or simply sit back and relax, we're here to help you complete your historic yacht experience.

Sailing Lessons

Congratulations on your interest in learning to sail! Or for the experienced sailor, to learn the art of the gaff rig. Because Selina II is an historic vessel, we offer a very different approach to learning to sail. In the two hours we spend together you can expect to learn the basics: line handling, how to raise the sail, steering the boat, reading the wind, and the physics behind what makes the boat go towards the wind. We'll cover simple boat handling, parts of a boat, a few basic knots, touch on weather, talk about rules of the road, simple four points of sail, determining proper sail set and practice tacking. You'll come away realizing you've only scratched the surface! $365 for two hours, can be anywhere from one up to six guests. Plus there is a 10% amusement tax in St. Michaels harbor, and it is customary to tip the ship's mate like a restaurant, 15%-20%.

Beer Tasting Cruises

About 5 years years ago two young, talented, and enthusiastic beer brewers (Adrian & Lori) showed into St. Michaels and opened the Eastern Shore Brewery, and started brewing pretty darn good beer.  And so our interest in beer was born, and the idea to offer beer tasting cruises on board Selina II sprung from fun times at the brewery.  So we offer a tastings of several area micro breweries, delivered in the best seats in town. Or should we say on the edge of town! 

Available anytime with prior reservations, these cruises include an unlimited sampling of these great local brewery's finest. $85pp min 2 guests, or by private charter up to 6 guests $420. Plus there is a 10% amusement tax in St. Michaels harbor, and it is customary to tip the ship's mate like a restaurant, 15%-20%.

Our Fantastic Wine Tasting Cruises Continue on!

Several winters ago Capt Iris took a vacation to South Africa, home to some spectacular vineyards. She's always had an interest in wine, and now has the opportunity to share the experience of learning about and tasting wines in a fabulous setting. Available anytime with prior reservations, these cruises include an introduction to the basics of wine tasting, sampling 3 reds and 3 whites, and scorecards for keeping track of your notes. Plus occasionally local restaurateurs and chefs drop in to share their food matching ideas (and come along for a sail, oh yea....). $85 per person, minimum 2 guests, or by private charter up to 6 guests $495. Plus there is a 10% amusement tax in St. Michaels harbor, and it is customary to tip the ship's mate like a restaurant, 15%-20%. Wine Cruises are available from 12:30-2:30pm and 3:00-5:00pm.

Moonlight Cruises

We depart the dock and go out into the Miles River, put up the sails, and follow the soft evening wind. Champagne and chocolate is complimentary. $85 per person, + tax and tip.
