Overview
More
At 47’, the Nauti-Cat cuts through the water with a smooth, comfortable sail that first time sailors and longtime sail enthusiasts will enjoy. The 29’ beam allows plenty of space for up to 43 passengers to relax on the nets or sight see from the high and dry decks and seating areas. An on-board bar with specialty drinks, two restrooms and a friendly crew will make sailing with Nauti-Cat the highlight of your vacation. Snacks are complimentary on every cruise.

This was a great cruise on the Nautical-Cat. We took the morning kids cruise. It was an hour and half long. Perfect for the kids...ages 4 and 6. They loved it! The crew was awesome, very interactive with the kids.

Good time, plenty of wind, sailed all the way to power island. The captain and his first mate were great, very entertaining and informative. The bartender made good drinks and they were reasonably priced, a very good time.
