The St. John's River is the jewel of North East Florida and First Coast Charters is delighted to be able to provide you with the best real charter boat sailing experience in such a beautiful venue as the river provides. As real sailing professionals what we absolutely do not do is take you out when conditions are such that we cannot actually sail (see chart below). Beyond a doubt First Coast Charters is the premiere Jacksonville sailing experience for the money.
Sail aboard Branwyn a modern, well equipped, fast, roomy Beneteau 311 sloop operated by a US Coast Guard licensed professional and ASA accredited sailing Instructor. Our 2 to 4 hour charters run just south of downtown leaving out of the Ortega river and sailing south. We provide an idyllic setting for family and friends to relax, enjoy food and beverages and good company all while having fun under sail! For that special connection our sunset charters are one of the best romantic offerings you can find in NE Florida!
Looking for a little more excitement? Try an introduction to sailing! If you have never sailed but are interested in learning then start with a 3-4 hour interactive introduction to sailing during which you will learn the fundamentals of sailing. After a brief orientation you will be invited to actively participate by manning the helm and sheets. Warning - this may be the beginning of a very rewarding new pastime!
Experience real cruising! Daylong cruises are available on the St. Johns river to Mayport or Ft. George Island. Extended multi-day cruising offerings include destinations like St. Marys, Cumberland Island, Amelia Island, Fernandina and St. Augustine. Whether on the river, Intracoastal or offshore we guarantee a fun, exciting and exhilarating sailing excursion.
