Staffed by a professional nautical crew, Palm Breeze Charters’ fleet of 55-foot ocean catamarans and sailing yachts conveys passengers through Boca Raton’s clear coastal waters. Skim waters on the “Island Breeze” or “Palm Breeze” vessels while inhaling the salt-scented air to a soundtrack of wind-whipping sails. As oceanic winds ruffle hair on either craft’s open deck, passengers gaze out at lavish homes, elusive marine wildlife, and their identical twin staring up from beneath the waves. On snorkel sailing cruises, catamarans drift to 15-foot reefs, where they drop anchor to allow passenger pairs safe passage into warm, exploration-ready waters brimming with sea turtles, vibrant tropical fish, and maze-like bulbs of coral. Licensed dive instructors divulge proper safety and reef-conservation rules around the chosen dive site before turning guests loose to freely explore the underwater tableaus. Life-preservers, personal flotation devices, and the Michelin Man are available to buoy expeditions upon request. When not immersed in waves or scenery, guests can sip from two included glasses of wine or beer, bottled water, or soda.
