Sailing Charters

There are several ways in which you can rent a yacht at Nautical Escapes, depending on your skill level and personal preferences.  These are normally referred to as Bareboat Charter, Skippered Charter, Flotilla, and Crewed Charter.

Cruise and Learn (with an instructor)

Do you not have any sailing experience? Would you like the comfort of having a skipper/instructor aboard? Maybe a skippered charter is just right for you and your group. We have hosted dates,engagements, birthday parties, graduations, anniversaries, employee reward sails, and many other very fun and special events.

Don't think you will be just a bump on a log though, we will need your assistance as crew to help us steer, raise and trim sails and tie up the boat at the end of the sail. This kind of very relaxed instruction is hopefully your first introduction to Sailing!

Now offering charters in Whitby, Pickering, and Toronto

Toronto Islands full-day adventure


Weather you are a tourist or local to Toronto you have never seen the city like this.
We bring a taste of our 7 day British Virgin Islands adventure vacation north for a fun and dynamic 8 hour adventure to the beautiful Toronto Islands and skyline.

We start out in scenic Bluffers Park in Toronto's east end then sail for 3 hours to the inner harbour. After a harbour tour we dock inside the islands for lunch then a 2nd harbour tour and back to the bluffs on the way back. Your group can handle the boat and get as much or as little instruction as they like. Relaxing sailing, cool music, and great humour are the spirit of the day. If the conditions permit we may even go for a swim.

Team Building

In sailing, especially aboard larger vessels, teamwork is essential for safety, efficiency and crew moral. Character building, comradery, skill development, humour, and encouragement are what we offer in our 6 hour team building program. These skills are vital for off-shore sailing and help your group develop into a team that works even better together.
We have created a true teambuilding experience! Your group will be separated into different boats and be trained in the morning on how to sail the boat. Then in the afternoon they will participate in a fun race, as well as try their hand at some fun "Nautical" challenges. The team with the best overall performance, attitude, and enthusiasm will win the trophy and bragging rights for the year. The other teams will also win fun prizes that will be presented at the waterfront bar after the event. Our focus is on providing your group with a relaxed,
co-operative activity that enhances teamwork, and is a lot of fun!!!
