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.

We had a blast on the sunset cruise. Unfortunately the sun was hiding behind the clouds but the company was excellent. The two crewmen, the captain and the bartender, were very interactive and fun with the guests. The best seat in the house is in one of the Nets on deck. We will be returning next year. This was a...

So much fun! Beautiful sail, even on a chilly day. Met some fun people, had a couple of cat nip cocktails, and the captain and first mate were laid back guys. Great way to get out on the water!

It was a good experience. The sailors were very friendly and didn't make people feel like they were a burden. Many places treat tourists like that. If there was one thing I would say could be better it would be seating. There were blankets and of course the nets but the boat can be pretty hard for 2.5 hours. Maybe... More
