Day Sailing Details
Bring up to six guests aboard the Moment for an unforgettable day of sailing around Provincetown Harbor, and enjoy the beautiful sights of beaches, lighthouses, and wildlife.
Our day sails are perfect for exploring Cape Cod, celebrating a special occasion, or just enjoying a day out with your family and friends. For all of our sailing charters, you are more than welcome to bring your own food and beverages of choice (please, no red wine or staining beverages). Choose from two, four, or six hours on the water and get ready for a perfect day of sailing.
Two-Hour Sail – Our Most Popular Option!
Set sail, tour the harbor, and enjoy the Moment! Get a taste of the sailing life on this brief trip. Our two-hour sailing charter is one of our most popular options. Our 8:00AM sail is $499 and all others are $699 all season except Independence day week.
Enjoy a half-day of sailing and sunning aboard the Moment! We set sail near Provincetown’s West End and then sail around the Harbor, Long Point, and into Cape Cod Bay. Time and weather permitting, we have the option to anchor off Long Point Beach or Herring Cove Beach and go swimming. Our four hour sails are $999.
Four-Hour Sail – 4th of July Option!
Join us for this special sunset sail around Provincetown harbor and then watch the spectacular Provincetown Fireworks show from our very own water view.
Spend a glorious six hours sailing, snacking, and sunning. We set sail near Provincetown’s West End and then sail around the Harbor, Long Point, and into Cape Cod Bay. If time and the weather allow, we have the option to anchor off Long Point Beach or Herring Cove Beach for a refreshing swim. Take some extra time to enjoy the surrounding beaches and maybe take a peaceful nap. Our six hour sails are $1,299.
Please read our below FAQ section for further specifics about our day sails.
Depart from Long Point Marina, 16 MacMillan Pier, Provincetown, MA 02657 (Next to Provincetown Fast Ferry dock). Public parking is available on Macmillian pier. Please do not arrive any sooner than your start time.
Moment can take up to six guests (strict US Coast Guard Policy, which includes children in the count) of all ages for day sails. All children up to and including 12 years old must wear a life jacket and count toward the six-person capacity of the boat. We do our best to provide life jackets, but please announce children 12 and under in advance. We apologize that Moment is not very handicap-friendly as all guests must be able to step up the equivalent of a three-step ladder. Sorry, no pets.
You can bring a light waterproof jacket in case we get a sprinkle or sea spray. Some evenings get cool, so an additional sweater or sweatshirt isn’t a bad idea either. Don’t forget sunglasses, hats, bathing suits, beach towels, and non-spray/non-bronzer sunscreen to make your sail more enjoyable. We request that you apply spray sun-screen onshore prior to boarding and not use it while on board.
We like to keep our white decks white, so the first rule on shoes is no black marking soles. Shoes and sandals with gum soles like Converse and white-soled boat shoes and deck shoes are best. Boots and sneakers, while seeming like they would have good grip, often don’t and mark the decks with their dark soles. You are welcome to go shoe-less as well if you prefer.
Food and beverages
We provide water for all sails, and you are welcome to pack a picnic and your own favorite beverages (please, no red wine or staining beverages!). Please otherwise let us know if you would like any special accommodations.
For fine wine and spirits, we recommend Perry’s. With advanced notice, we can arrange to pick up your purchased beverages and have them chilled and awaiting your arrival.
While each day’s winds and weather dictate the course of our sail, here are some possibilities of how our sail might go:
After boarding the boat, we set sail and go out around Provincetown Harbor and Long Point for our two-hour sails.
Four to six-hour sails allow us to go further into Cape Cod Bay to Wood End Light and possibly to Race Point or towards Wellfleet. With time and conditions permitting, we can anchor the boat, swim, or take a dinghy ashore to explore Long Point or Herring Cove Beach. We often see wildlife, including seals, birds, and sometimes dolphins or whales.
Evening sails enjoy Provincetown’s beautiful golden light and the setting sun. At the end of each sail, we call Flyer’s launch to return you to shore.
If you contact us and cancel 14 days or more prior to your departure date, you receive a full credit to book another trip within one year or an 85% refund.
If you give us less than 14 days notice, you receive a 50% refund. If you must cancel less than 48 hours before your trip, there is no refund. No-shows are charged the full price.
If we have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, we do our best to reschedule or give you a full refund. If there is severe weather, we work with you to reschedule. If there is severe weather, we work with you to reschedule. If there is light wind, rain or mild weather circumstances, we will still go out. We are not considered a small craft. If there is severe weather, we do our best to work with you to reschedule. We do not make weather decisions any sooner than two hours prior to sail start time as weather on Cape Cod is highly variable.
You are welcome to participate, learn, or simply soak up the sailing and enjoy the Moment. Only in special circumstances would you be asked to assist with the vessel while onboard the Moment.
It is very normal for guests to not be accustomed to the motion of the boat at sea. Recommendations for preventing sickness include proper rest and hydration, Bonine (take one hour before boarding), ginger gum and chews, motion sickness wristbands, always looking at the horizon, and refraining from discussing the topic at length.
It is customary to tip the captain/crew 15-25% of the cost of the sail when chartering a sailboat. Like any hospitality position, this is a large part of our compensation. Did you have fun? Please show us here! Please note that your card on file will be charged 20% of the total sail value plus tax if you choose to omit gratuity at the end of your sail.
