Sail to your next Daycation


One Day at a Time

Your next vacation doesn’t require packing the suitcase, taking leave, or possibly getting left stranded. All you really need…. is a day... a daycation.

Stay close to home while getting the fix you have long been craving and do so in just 1 day. Traditionally a day trip worthwhile meant a whole lot of driving and just one experience, but by sailing to your next daycation you can spend less time driving and more time doing.

Let us take the wheel and keep you moving while you stop and unload, visit wonderful world-class wineries, quiet quaint villages, or beautiful bays and beaches. Sailing the bay is the missing link in being able to see everything this beautiful state has to offer all in the space of a day.

An experience in and of itself, catching the ferry allows you to engage with the picturesque Port Phillip Bay.  Watch the native wildlife play with whimsy or simply relax with friends on a unique 40 minute experience. 

So, your next holiday requires a quick drive from home, a bay sail, and just one day. Sail to your next daycation!
