Family Day Trips

We have 3 family daytime trips, the 2 hour getaway sail perfect for smaller children, a 4 hour adventure sail for people who want extra time on the water, and the all day charter sail.

Frequently asked questions about our trips are located here.

  • The 2 hour getaway sail

This is the perfect sail for families with smaller children who want to give the the experience of sailing on the gulf of mexico or the back bays or Orange Beach.

Overview

A quick and relaxing ride on our yacht out to the Gulf of Mexico or the Bay (depending on conditions and customer preference).  You will be able to see the Perdido Pass bridge, the pass and the jetties. 

Then out to the Gulf for a relaxing sail.  We will probably see other boats and then the beach from the gulf side.  We will sail down the beach (depending on the wind of course) looking for dolphins and other marine life.  The trip lasts 2 hours.  This is a great trip for anyone wanting to get away for a while.

What To Bring

On the 2 hour sail you don't really need to bring anything except some sun block, sun glasses and maybe a hat (The sun is more intense on the water).  All other items are provided by Orange Beach Sailing Adventures.  We have drinks and snacks (Water, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Peanuts, Chips, Pretzels etc...) but feel free to bring your own.

Routes

We will normally sail through the pass and out into the gulf depending on sea conditions.  If conditions are too rough for a gulf sail we can also go in the protected bay area.

  • The 4 hour adventure sail

Great for people wanting to experience more time on the water, we do these trips in the morning (8am-12pm) or afternoon (1pm-5pm).  We are sure to see plenty of wildlife on this sail.

Overview

The 4 hour Adventure Sail goes to the Gulf under the Perdido Pass Bridge and down the beach either towards Gulf Shores passing all of Orange Beach or sail down to Florida depending on the wind direction and customer preference.  You will get to sail further and become more relaxed than on the 2 hour sail.  We set ALL sails, get out the snacks and relax while looking for dolphins and wildlife.  The Captain can answer questions about sailing in Orange Beach, let the kids steer the yacht, explain points of navigation, and help make you comfortable.

We have a full entertainment system on the yacht with Ipod plugin (if you want to bring your own music) Sirius Sat Radio, CD, CDR, MP3 etc...  We have a large library of music for you to enjoy. 

What To Bring

On the 4 hour sail you need to bring sun block, sun glasses, maybe a hat (the sun is more intense on the water), your music, beach towel, and your bathing suit if you'd like to stop for a mid gulf swim.  All other items are provided by Orange Beach Sailing Adventures.  We have drinks and snacks (Water, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Peanuts, Chips, Pretzels etc...) but feel free to bring your own. If your trip is in the morning or afternoon we can even arrange to have breakfast or lunch on the boat for your group or family.

Routes

We will normally sail through the pass and out in the gulf depending on sea conditions.  If conditions are too rough for a gulf sail we can also go in the protected Bay area.
