2 Hour Cruises

Sunset Cruises

Make your day on the North Fork perfect  by including a 2 hour sail

When you visit the North Fork and the water beckons, include a 2 hour cruise in your plans for your day. It will be the one thing you'll remember most about your visit to our area. Being on the water in the afternoon when the wind fills in with a good sea breeze is a real treat. The light is also softer later in the afternoon; the relaxing sound of the water as it laps against the hull is just magical. The charge for a 2 hour sail is only $60 per person if you are  part of a group sail. We can accommodate up to 6 passengers and will combine groups to our 6 person max. Saturdays at 5:00  p.m. when the Joie is in Greenport. When we are not teaching, we also offer private charters for half a day($650) or two hour afternoon cruises ( $350) but you must call ahead.  Children must be over five, please, for your enjoyment and their safety.  To avoid disappointment, please call for advance reservations when planning your visit to the North Fork: 917-912-6342 or email captjoan@saillongisland.com. In 2017 we will offer these cruises on weekdays with enough demand. Please check our schedule tab on this website for our 2017schedule. Primarily, we teach sailing. So these cruises are offered when we are in port or later on the days we teach after the classes are over. This year we are adding Tuesday and Thursday cruises at 4 p.m.  Monday by special request if there is enough demand. Just call and ask.  CaptJoan: 917 912 6342

Private Charters

We are available for private charters for your group up to 6 persons. One summer, a bride and groom spent a few magical hours out in the harbor aboard the Joie de Vivre following their afternoon wedding reception in downtown Greenport. Another gentleman took his lady love out for a half day private sail as a special birthday treat. Another couple hired us for a "look see" from the water before they settled on a specific area in which to buy a house on the North Fork. You might want to spend a day aboard with your friends or family just to sightsee or enjoy the North Fork from a special vantage point on the water. On a full day sail you can go ashore in 3 Mile Harbor (East Hampton) for lunch or bring you own picnic aboard. Please call us to arrange your own private sail to enjoy our neighborhood . $350 for two hours, $650 for a half day (4 hours), $950 for the full day (8 hours). Or call to discuss a weekend overnight sail for your private group to nearby Essex,Connecticut or to LI's south fork  to rustic Lake Montauk or East Hampton. There are so many wonderful places nearby to visit and explore.
