WINE TASTING CRUISES

Wine Cruises on the Selina II Sailing Yacht

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 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 7-days a week 12:30-2:30pm and 3:00-5:00pm.

Spacious/Beautiful Boats

Cat Boats are known for their roominess. At 41′ long and 16′ wide, we have gracious uncovered seating in the cockpit with four captains chairs and 2 double settees. Even the tallest guests have plenty of room to stretch out. And all that in a gorgeous setting. Sail Selina was built as a gentleman’s yacht in the Gatsby era and is finished in freshly varnished mahogany and brightly polished bronze. Many people tell us the photos dont due justice to how beautiful the wood workmanship is.
