Sailing Charters

Sail & Picnic

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be on one of those sailboats gliding along Kingston’s waterfront? The view of beautiful, historic Kingston from the water is a wonderfully unique, exciting perspective.

Climb aboard this lovely 24' sailing sloop and let your skipper take you on a personalized sailing tour of Kingston's historic waterfront and see why this city is known as the "freshwater sailing capital" of Canada. No sailing experience required, group sizes up to 5 maximum.

The vessel used for all of our sailing charters is a 24-foot sailing sloop named Cygnet, built in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Her roomy cockpit allows you lots of room to stretch out, and there is room below to stow any extra clothing or snacks that you may want to bring along.

Your reserved charter is your own personal outing; no other passengers will join you. The experience is of your own making; you can let your skipper do all the work, or you can pull a few ropes or even steer the boat a little under the watchful eyes of your captain.

Customers will be taken out for a three-hour sail, including a stop at an island, or eating aboard or at anchor; the choice is yours. Food prepared by Pan Chancho local bakery.
