Sail Selina, St. Michaels MD


Moonlight Cruises on the Selina II Sailing Yacht


We sail every evening May-August from 7:30-9:30 and call it our moonlight cruise. On some of those evenings that’s when the sun is setting, and on some evenings the moon is also visible. Once a month the full moon rises as the sun sets, making being on the water the most magical experience known to any sailor. 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.


Our summer 2019 moonlight schedule:

We sail every night from 7:30-9:30pm from late April thru Labor day called our ‘Moonlight Cruise’, but depending on the time of year and the cycle of the moon we may or may not have a sunset and/or a moon in the sky at that time of night. We still have availability on those outings, but the best viewing dates listed below sell out way ahead of time. If you think you would like to come out with us give us a call or book online to make your reservation, not much downside as we have a 72 hour cancellation policy on this special sail
