    Sailing Charter On 39' Catalina Sailboat In Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    Captain Charlie has a world of experiences to share, and it makes the chartering experience memorable. We had the opportunity to sail to the ocean and navigate the fort Lauderdale intercoastal with him. I would highly recommend this charter, and it's the owner. We had four adults and two little kids, and we all enjoyed it. The boat and the facilities are in good shape and Captain Charlie was excellent to adapt to mother nature.
