Sails are 2 1/2 hours and can accommodate 42 guests age 8 and older. All guests are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure. It is important to be prompt, because we don't want to leave anyone behind at the dock or keep our guests waiting on our departure. Unfortunately, we may have last-minute cancellations 
due to weather.
What to bring on a sail
It gets cooler once we are out sailing, and the weather can change quickly out on the water. Please bring a warm layer (fleece or sweater), a water-resistant shell or rain jacket for wind protection, and closed-toe shoes. We also suggest bringing sunscreen and a water bottle. In case of rain and to check on sail status, please call 475-238-4906 two hours prior to your scheduled sail.  
Remember: keep watch on the harbor and the Amistad 24/7 with the NL HarborCam.
