Great Harbour Charters
Hone your nautical skills while cruising the waters of southwest Florida. Great Harbour is now offering customized training charters and captained cruises from a base at Port Sanibel Marina, in the Cape Coral/Ft. Myers area. Located close to the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River, with the expanses of Pine Island Sound to the north, this setting provides an ideal variety of waterway environments that will allow cruisers to gain experience in river channels, locks, the ICW waterway and open water.
Charters will be offered aboard the company's N37 and N47 models. Rather than follow a fixed curriculum, programs can be tailored to the need of an individual, couple or small group. Topics might range from basic boat handling and the understanding and operation of onboard systems, to multi-day river, inshore and coastal itineraries, or even a circumnavigation of Florida’s Little Loop, which takes in the scenic expanses of the state's interior waterways and secluded southwest coast, as well as the Florida Keys and the excitement of Miami, fort Lauderdale and the state's Gold Coast . The loop cruise provides experience in river, canal, and lock passages, coastal navigation and the possibility of a 98-mile open-water crossing to Key West.
A Great Harbour training charter is an ideal way to experience the company's legendary liveaboard cruisers, build a solid foundation in boating basics, or perfect cruising skills in preparation for a Great Loop trip or a cruise to the islands.
