Come Sail Away with Cetacean Cruises

Have you ever experienced a sailing adventure aboard a two-hull sailboat? Two hulls provide stability for a smooth ride without leaning to one side. Come enjoy a two-hour sail at sunset or a day sail aboard the Cetacean, a 52-foot Hawaiian catamaran. Day sailing tours are great for the entire family! With the wind in our sails, the Cetacean skims along the waters of Orange Beach, Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida. While out sailing, you’ll see coastal wildlife and marine life all around. Take in the sights and sounds as pelicans and cormorants dive into the water; bald eagles, egrets, sea gulls, herons and osprey fly nearby; schools of bait fish surround the sailboat; and our resident pod of dolphins plays in our bow wake.

Our Sailboat “The Cetacean” is the only sailing vessel that offers a full service cocktail bar onboard in Orange Beach, Alabama.

* Our sunset sailing cruises are best suited for ages 13 and up.

Set Sail on Cetacean

Find all your creature comforts aboard the Cetacean, our 52-foot catamaran. We also offer a full service bar onboard serving adult beverages.  Cetacean offers more than 1,000 feet of deck space and is perfect for dolphin watching, parties and even weddings. The watercraft can comfortably accommodate up to 40 guests. A restroom is also available for guest use during our sailing excursions. In addition, the Cetacean boasts a mast reaching skyward more than six stories tall! Below deck, you’ll find a well-equipped galley and a dining area for eight. Generally, food and drinks are served topside while the galley and dining are used by staff when events are catered aboard our Orange Beach sailboat.

Private Charters & Special Events

What better way to commemorate a marriage or other special event than at sail! Private charters are available for groups of up to 40 guests. Whether you’re planning a church outing, family reunion or company function, charters are an affordable way to enjoy time with friends, family and co-workers while sailing the waters in and around Orange Beach, Alabama.


A Match Made in Heaven and a Wedding in Paradise

Small, intimate weddings provide couples and guests with some of the most memorable moments. The Cetacean is available for both weddings and receptions and can be chartered for two hours or longer. A sunset wedding aboard the sailboat offers a picture-perfect setting for your nuptials. Romance and anniversary cruises are also very popular.

Cetacean weddings are not only serene and beautiful, but affordable as well.
