We have several cruises during the year - about one a month. Some of the cruises last a couple of days and some may last a couple of weeks. The destinations may be to marinas with all the amenities or they may be on the hook. We cruise from the Keys to Tarpon Springs and have been known to invade the East Coast of Florida, the Bahamas and the Dry Tortugas. One thing is for certain, the cruises are well organized and you will be with a great bunch of people.
