Thank you from Take Me There!
We want to take a few minutes to express our sincerest THANK YOU to all of you who have sailed with us in the last year and a half. We do not take our business relationships for granted and we are so grateful that you said TAKE ME THERE!
As many of you know, we spent 2020 in the Salt Creek Marina and DIY Boatyard with Take Me There up on land while we literally tore her apart and then put her back together in order to create the most beautiful vintage boat (as well as the safest) that would also meet restaurant standards. We spent a year being dirty! But we learned so much and enjoyed the journey.
We did not know whether we could make this private sailing charter business work– especially during COVID. We were experiencing supply chain issues and not being able to get parts, we struggled to get the qualified labor to help us (so we just did it ourselves), and there was so much about opening a restaurant with a beer/wine license that we did not know. Many times we felt like we were flying blind. But one thing we were always sure of- we believe in giving exceptional service, having a great time, and treating people fairly and with respect.
After a year of renovations, we called a few dear friends and asked them to accompany us on our maiden voyage as a sailing charter boat to Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda. Thank you, Michelle, Joanne, and Chris!
Within a few days of putting our signs up in the marina, the phone started ringing and it was time to actually do the work that we had been planning and preparing to do! As a licensed restaurant with a beer and wine license, we quickly became known as the go-to charter for special events.
We want to say THANK YOU to all of you who called on us to host family gatherings,
And many, many family and friends gatherings!
We did lots of eating!
LOTS of drinking!
And of course, we did lots of sailing and enjoyed a lot of amazing sunsets and beautiful Florida skies!
We kayaked, floated, swam, snorkeled, enjoyed the beaches, and most importantly made INCREDIBLE MEMORIES! For all of these amazing experiences, we want to say THANK YOU! We hope that we have given you opportunities to have memories that you will reflect on over and over again.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. Thank you for welcoming us into your life events. And thank you for trusting us to help you create unforgettable memories. Take a look at our short video that shows you more memories made aboard Take Me There.
And if all of this was not exciting enough, we have a lot more exciting things happening onboard Take Me There.
