Looking for half day sailboat excursion

We will be staying in venice. Would like to do a half day sail with informal sailing instruction for one of us, and maybe a lunch. Any of the marinas from Venice to Port Charlotte would be great.

Thanks!

I can recommend this sailing experience:

The boat is docked at the Marina Jack docks in Sarasota.

If you contact them I am sure Jan will arrange anything to make you happy...

I've sailed on their boat and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I agree with SRQGirl. They will take very good care of you. There are more options for sailing in Sarasota than Venice and Port Charlotte combined.

Thank you all for the information! I have already looked at their website, and will most likely be calling them. I'm surprised Charlotte Harbor isn't the sailing "capitol." It was voted a top ten place for sailing in the US. I don't mind going up to Sarasota at all.
