Your experience begins as you board Nauti Clew. With her many amenities such as a large cockpit seating 6 or more comfortably, swim platform, salon below, forward and aft births, dining settee, full galley marine head and shower.
As you leave the dock all hands on deck for marine mammal and tropical bird watching. The waters of the Indian River are abundant with dolphin, manatee and birds of all kinds.
Just a few minutes from the dock we raise sails and you can be at the helm sailing or just kicking back and relaxing as your Captain takes her to windward.
The Indian River begins south of Daytona Beach and ends north of West Palm Beach. Our cruising area is from Cocoa Beach south to Vero Beach. Most day cruises are in the Melbourne area.
Because of the calm waters of the Indian River Lagoon we will not experience large ocean waves.


Lessons are $75 per hour (2 hour minimum).
