$35 for two adult tickets to a three-hour Go Fish family sailing cruise (up to a $70 value)

The 65-foot Appledore V traverses the San Carlos Bay as passengers help to sail the boat, view dolphins, and learn about marine life from onboard oceanic experts. Children's tickets for the Go Fish family sailing cruise are available for an extra fee ($15 per child, age 6–14 years), children 5 and under sail free.


With a stable of two schooners, Appledore IV and Appledore V, which split their time between Fort Myers, Florida, and Bay City and Mackinaw City, Michigan, BaySail's captains ferry passengers about the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico during leisurely and educational tours. The sea vessels depart from Bay City to wind along the Saginaw River and into open water, letting passengers soak up summer sun or, in the autumn, traveling upriver for spectacular views of changing leaves and scarecrows playing hooky on the riverbanks. Come winter, the Appledore V makes its way to Florida, where it seeks out the dolphin populations of San Carlos Bay. All of BaySail's excursions are interactive seafaring affairs in which passengers are encouraged to help to crew the watercraft, learn about fish brought into onboard tanks, and force seagulls to walk the plank.
