About Us

Sail Cruises
and Captain for Hire

As a licensed USCG 50 Ton Master Captain Mark Schwenk has a lifetime of experience sailing the waters of the Chesapeake and down to the Caribbean. He is also an ASA Certified Sailing Instructor and can guide you while you learn the ropes.
 
Along with his partner and first mate Cheryl, they can make your trip comfortable, enjoyable and memorable.
 
Cruise for an afternoon or up to a week and feel confident while you enjoy the sun, wind and waves. Spend the afternoon sunning yourself on deck sightseeing and spend the evenings relaxing while sipping a margarita in the cockpit in an isolated cove or at a dockside restaurant.

Destinations

Chesapeake Bay / Bahamas / Caribbean

We can sail with you from just about any place-here are some of our favorite ports of call.
 
Our home base is on the Chesapeake but we can arrange to charter and captain boats anywhere.

Captain for Hire / Yacht deliveries

Mark can help you learn to get the most out of your own boat as you cruise the waters of the Chesapeake or farther. His experience with vessels small and large will give you the confidence you need to take on the demands of sailing. Mark and any needed crew can be available to simply let you enjoy time on the water.
 
Need your yacht relocated? Have a new boat you want delivered or picked up? Want that boat waiting for you when you arrive in some distant port ?
 
We can make local and long distance deliveries of most any vessel.
