Atlantis V Charters donates all of its proceeds to the Never Say Never Foundation, which leads free sailing lessons for children. Similarly, the company's captains and crew volunteer their time and refuse payment. Instead, the expert sailors profit from fostering awareness of the ocean's beauty, wildlife, and resources. They welcome passengers aboard a 50-foot classic world-cruising sailing yacht; half- or all-day charters and short sunset tours are available. During these journeys, the captains answer questions and teach passengers about the dolphins that frequently swim alongside the boat. Using a dinghy, the crew also takes passengers around Anclote Island. If weather permits, they view an 1887 lighthouse and discover underwater habitats using snorkeling gear.
To reap nature?s bounty, the company also leads fishing trips aboard a 20-foot Proline fishing boat. With all the necessary bait and tackle, a wildlife instructor teaches beginners the basics of baiting and casting, while helping more experienced fishermen reel in their catches and enjoy the water.

Sun Line Cruise's 45-foot catamaran, the "Island Star," transports its passengers to local spots where they can enjoy views of everything from lovely sunsets to pods of dolphins. Passengers sip, cocktails, our signature "Jamaican Me Crazy", beer and wine, and learn about the local marine wildlife and eco-system on Sea Fari cruises around Anclote Key. This locale, which is the northernmost barrier island in the Gulf, is also home to a historic lighthouse built in 1887.
Narcosis Scuba prepares divers of all skill levels for open sea exploration by giving them the education and equipment they need to safely explore the ocean's criminal underworld. An open water certification course outfits submerged swimmers with a designation from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, the world's top training organization for scuba diving. Depending on whether you choose an evening, daytime, or weekend class, the curriculum spans one to two weeks and consists of two to four classroom sessions, two dives in an enclosed pool, and a weekend on the open water. Narcosis provides the heavy-duty equipment for each class, so students can leave their harpoon guns at home. However, students must supply their own mask, snorkel, fins, booties, gloves, and weight belt—all of which can be rented from Narcosis for an extra charge. Once they've completed the course, aquatic adventurers can freely probe the briny deep on their own and play the fishbone xylophone during its many undersea musical numbers.
At Wentworth Golf Club, golfers are treated to two distinct modes of golf course design within one 18-hole layout. The front nine showcases a classic parkland setting, complete with towering forests of pine, oak, and cypress trees. Play opens up significantly as players make the turn, where they emerge from the woods and embark on a back nine that bears more resemblance to the traditional links courses found in Scotland. The course bunkering is another feature that resembles golf's birthplace, as more than 100 bunkers litter the course and give players plenty of opportunities to scrawl letters of encouragement for golfers behind them in the sand.
