Do you love music?  Want to be the D.J. on the yacht?  

We will provide you with our special iPad so you can select songs/playlists through Spotify Premium.  Or, you can just chill with Captain Doug’s yacht themed playlist or request your favorite Sirius XM channel.

Come really prepared by creating a special 2hr playlist on Spotify just for your private sail.  Don’t forget to make it public so you will be able to access it from the yacht ipad.

Sunset times vary; therefore, tour times change throughout the year.


Our boat is registered as a recreational class vessel so we can only take 6 paying passengers.  Please don’t ask us if more than 6 can come.  We can’t allow it.   Sorry!

WEATHER CONDITIONS NOTE: In New Orleans especially during the summer months, rain and thunderstorms are isolated and usually short-lived. However, if it’s an actual weather system with potentially unsafe conditions, the captain will cancel at his discretion, and refunds will be provided.
