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 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 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. 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.

Romance and Anniversary cruises are also available. To make your celebration that much sweeter, guests chartering a private romance cruise for two will enjoy an extra hour of sailing. It’s time to slow down, take in the scenes and celebrate.

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 four hours or longer. A sunset wedding aboard the sailboat offers a picture-perfect setting for your nuptials.

When you choose to hold your Orange Beach wedding aboard Cetacean, you can leave the planning to us. We partner with reputable vendors for catering, videography and entertainment. Cetacean weddings are not only serene and beautiful, but affordable as well. Depending on the number of guests, weddings and receptions range from $2,000 to $4,000, much less than traditional functions. However, if you’d like, you can also bring food and drinks and arrange your own photographer and entertainment. The choice is yours.

We also invite you to hold your pre-wedding events such as bachelor and bachelorette parties aboard the Cetacean. We sail to a remote location, drop anchor and treat you to a fun, private event!

Catering Aboard the Cetacean

While we do offer an ample supply of snacks and drinks available for $1 each, we can also arrange for a catered dinner or hors d’oeuvres for your special event. We do not sell liquor or beer; however, guests may bring their own drinks aboard the Cetacean.

Should you choose not to use our catering service, you are welcome to bring your own food aboard the Cetacean.
