Island Memories Forever.

I’ve known Captain Mike of Tropical Escape Yacht Charters for awhile now. He and I put together a couple Castaway Cruises last year and have decided to do some more. Want to do some island hopping?

Captain Mikes owns at 70ft. Hatteras motor yacht and does regular charters to the Bahamas and Florida Keys. I’ve been on two of these adventures; Bimini and the Exumas, and it’s easily one of the best ways to see the islands.

The yacht, “MERMAID TALES”, is based out of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. With four staterooms and four heads, it’s comfortable for 7 people.

You might think that chartering a yacht is way out of your budget, but Captain Mike makes it extremely affordable to see some of the most beautiful spots in the Bahamas and Caribbean. He offers Share-The-Cruise options which allows you to pay for only your spot, not the entire boat. You’ll share the experience with other island loving sailors or invite your friends and family to go with you.

Here is the cruise schedule for the rest of the year and into 2017. If you are interested, please fill out the form on the right. Captain Mike or myself will be happy to help you.

Hope to see you on deck!
