Sea Ray is the largest boat builder in the United States and the 460 Sundancer is one of the most popular models. The Irish Wake is a meticulous cleaned and detailed vessel.  With an almost 15 feet of beam and over fifty feet of length she offers huge areas to entertain our guests.  And weighing in at over 32,000 lbs. she provides a safe, solid, dry, ride.  Her power plants are (2) 450 hp. Turbo Diesel Cummins engines that provide a comfortable and dry 25 mph cruise. There are full bow rail and hand rails for moving safely fore and aft from the cockpit to the bow.  Forward, there is a huge bow pad for laying in the sun or just relaxing.  Aft, the cockpit offers shaded comfortable seating for your party under the hardtop and bimini. Below decks are (2) staterooms and (2) bathrooms (heads).  There is also a salon and full kitchen area (galley), all air-conditioned.

For those wanting to get in the water, the Irish Wake has a full hydraulic transom allowing all to safely enter and exit the water. She also carries over a dozen PFD (Personal Flotation Devices) for all our guests. All electronics and navigation systems are 2016 or newer. There is a EPIRB (Emergency position-indicating radio beacon) and all USCG required signaling and medical items.  The vessel even has thermal visioning (FLIR) for night maneuvering.

Children always enjoy being on the water. We carry many sizes of PFDs for most sizes of children, just call us to confirm the sizes and numbers. We have plenty of air conditioned room below for those who may seek some quiet or an afternoon nap. Also, there is a large monitor and Blue-Ray player for children to bring along a favorite movie to offer additional entertainment.

Here are some estimates of the most common charters we provide. Of course each one is specific to your expectations. We make sure all of our charters have one price, inclusive of all fees including fuel. The number of people (1-6) does not change the price of our charters. We require a 48 hour notice on charter reservations due to the preparation needed to make our charters the best they can be for our guests.

LUNCH DESTINATION - TARPON POINT MARINA (CAPE CORAL) This charter is the most popular year round charter. We leave our marina and cruise over to Tarpon Point Marina. This is a beautiful marina with (4) restaurants that offer eating inside and out. The docks are floating and allow for safe boarding from our vessel. Even on windy days this cruise offers protected waterways and easy conditions. With (3) hours of travel time and (1) hour for lunch this charter is $600.

LUNCH DESTINATION - GREEN FLASH (CAPTIVA ISLAND) This charter has us going from our marina up to beautiful Captiva Island through Pine Island Sound. The waters are beautiful and the view from the restaurant is amazing. At (4 hours) travel time and (1) hour for lunch this cruise is $800.

LUNCH DESTINATION - CABBAGE KEY Yes, the world famous “Cheese burger in paradise” location. This charter has us leaving our dock and taking the same route as the Green Flash but cruising further North passing Red Fish Pass and Captiva Pass. Once docked it is a quick walk up to the restaurant with walls and ceiling covered in dollar bills. This travel time is (4 hours plus) and the total (1) hour for lunch this cruise is $900.

BEACH TRIP (SANIBEL ISLAND) We leave our marina and head over to the Gulf side of Sanibel Island. Anchoring right off the beach allows for swimming, floating, and hanging out in the water and even swimming into the beach to explore and do some shelling. Most people bring their own lunch. Our hydraulic transom makes getting in and out of the water easy for everyone. The round trip over and back is (2 hours) the remainder of the time is all up to you 2 hours or more (minimum charters are 4 hours). This cruise starts at $700 each additional hour is $100.

BEACH TRIP (FORT MYERS BEACH) This is the best charter to just get out on the boat for awhile and get into the water to float and swim, just like the Sanibel trip.

SUNSET CRUISE (FORT MYERS BEACH) This charter is scheduled around the sunset each day. We leave our marina 2 hours prior to the sunset, cruise out into the Gulf along the island, and returning after the sunset. This charter runs 3 hours and is all no-wake, comfortable cruising. This cruise is $350.

NAPLES DAY TRIP This is a full day of boating and sightseeing the Naples area. It is a (4) hour round trip and we can spend time cruising through Port Royal checking out the incredible waterfront homes, dropping off for lunch, and just making a full day on the water. Because of the distance in open water, conditions and weather are very important. This cruise is normally an (8) hour charter and with extended travel costs it is $1500. Because of our vessel’s height we only go into Gordon’s Pass and Naples Bay for charters, we do not go into Doctor’s Pass or Venetian Bay.

MARCO ISLAND DAY TRIP This is a full day of boating and sightseeing the Marco Island area. It is a (5.5) hour round trip and once there, we can spend time cruising around, dropping off for lunch, and just making a full day on the water.

We price all of our charters on time and fuel, our largest cost and any extra details discussed before the charter. All reservations are made with a $250 deposit that is refundable 72 hours before the start of the charter date, due to inclement weather, or for any reasons arising from our operations.
