We've booked this groupon www.groupon.com/deals/vantage-yacht-club-5 for a half day Pontoon Boat rental from Vantage Yacht Club, Bald Eagle Drive located here: http://www.vantageyachtclub.com/marco but we're non-sailors and I'm now a bit worried! The groupon allows a four hour rental and says we can throw anchor at Keywaddin Island. Will we be able to safely do that do you think?
We've gone for a Wednesday 11:30am rental hoping that the water ways will be less busy than at the weekend. None of us are sailors, they will give us instructions but could any experienced sailors give us some tips. Is it safe to anchor at the island and how do you make sure you don't ground the boat? Is it a swim into the island or can you get close enough to wade in? We'll have a six month old baby with us so we'll be super cautious and careful.
We'd like to have a gentle ride, do a spot of shelling and have a picnic lunch and my 12 year old son would love to do some fishing too.
