A Moonlight Cruise with Champagne

Sail Selina II’s last boat charter of the day sails every evening May-August from 7:30-9:30 and we call it our moonlight cruise. Depending on the time of year on some of those evenings that’s when the sun is setting, and on some evenings the moon is also visible turning your sailing experience into an amazing moonlight cruise. Even just the sliver of a crescent moon dancing in the sky and reflecting in the water romances everybody’s heart.

Sail Selina II limits our guests to just 6 passengers so for a lucky few, once a month the full moon rises as the sun sets, making being on the water for this 2 hour boat tour the most magical experience known to any sailor. On our low key, relaxing Moonlight Cruise we depart the dock from the beautiful St Michaels, MD harbor, and go out into the Miles River, put up the sails, and follow the soft evening wind. Along with all that you get to enjoy unlimited champagne, hand crafted beers, and red & white wines. All drinks are complimentary on this popular Chesapeake Bay boat tour.

Your St Michaels MD sail boat ride includes a personalized tour with our first class captains & crew. Join us as we sail out past the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and the beautiful six sided historic screw pile style Hoopers Strait Lighthouse. Enjoy seeing the historic boats that dot the St Michaels MD waterfront like skipjacks and Chesapeake bugeyes, and then on past the Inn at Perry Cabin where the movie Wedding Crashers was filmed. See if you can find our resident osprey nest if the sun hasnt set yet. Then learn about the moon phases and the difference between a waxing and a waning moon. Surprise bonus for folks who join us later in the season as it gets darker early: gorgeous star gazing. When was the last time you got to see the Milky Way? Sometimes we even get to see the space station. Treat yourself to this unforgettable & relaxing St Michaels Maryland boat tour.

Limited to just 6 guests, Sail Selina II’s intimate upscale moonlight cruises sell out early.

Please note: If you are not booking a private charter, this moonlight cruise requires at least two people to book in order to go out.
