Top 3 Reasons to Sail Take Me There!

Hi Everyone! I think it’s important to remind folks of the reasons to sail Take Me There. Are you as ready as we are for 2020 to be over? We’ve experienced things this year that we never dreamed would ever happen… It’s been a year of social distancing, toilet paper shortages, quarantining at home, take-out food and grocery home delivery, canceled gatherings, work at home or no work at all, and limited seating at important life events.  While we want to encourage everyone to be safe and stay healthy, we think that you can have a balance of safety and fun and that you don’t have to choose to be safe but not have any fun. You can still get out and have fun AND stay healthy at the same time. So it’s time for #funin21! And we know just how to do it. Here are our top reasons to sail Take Me There.

So why should you sail Take Me There? Here are our top three reasons why we think you should choose to sail Take Me There:

  1. We know how to live a balanced life is the first reason to sail Take Me There. We saw 2020 as the year of extremes. On one end of the spectrum, some people threw caution to the wind and got up close and personal with others despite warnings of social distancing and threw their masks away as soon as they were told it was not mandatory. At the other extreme were those who never left their house out of fear of catching COVID19. Steve and I did neither of these things. We balanced safety with necessity. We incorporated Take Me There Sailing in January 2020. When COVID19 hit the news, we were in the middle of renovating Take Me There. Take Me There was up on land and torn apart to begin top to bottom updates and we couldn’t just close up shop and go home. So we put on our masks every morning, made our runs to Home Depot, Lowes, Fiberglass Coating and Pinellas Fastener, used a ton of hand sanitizer, and kept our distance. But then we went to work in the beautiful Florida sunshine and turned Take Me There into an amazing work of art. We will offer you the same balance. We will continue to keep our distance, wear our masks, wash our hands, sanitize our boat regularly and turn on the UV lights to ensure that we keep the germs to a minimum. But you will see our smiles through our masks, our eyes twinkle and our voices exude excitement as we share the thrill of snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, and enjoying good food and drinks as we sail the Southwest coast of Florida.
  2. We do it right- is the second reason to sail Take Me There! While there are many private charters out there to choose from, we have the licenses and credentials to offer you the security of knowing that we have gone above and beyond to serve you. When we decided to be “all-inclusive” and serve food and alcohol, we started calling DBPR (the Florida Department of Professional Regulations) to find out how we would legally be able to offer food and beverage service that was so much more than bottled water and gas station sushi. The process was much harder than I originally thought. Aren’t we a bed and breakfast? No, not really. Aren’t we like a food truck? Nope. We are just like your favorite sit-down restaurant that caters to private functions of 6 people or less. We are a licensed Florida restaurant meeting all the health department codes of safety standards just like any other restaurant. And we are also licensed to serve beer and wine with a COP2 license. It was not an easy process. It took a great deal of time and effort to accomplish these credentials. Why did we go through this effort? Because, we believe in doing the right thing, even when no one is looking and because YOU DESERVE EXCEPTIONAL! This is just one of the certifications that we hold. Here are the other qualifications that make us unique in the private sailing charter world!
  3. Vintage charm with modern conveniences with personal touches and lots of love is the third reason to sail Take Me There! The last of the BIG 3 reasons why we think you should sail withTake Me There is because we offer a vintage boat with lots of personal touches. There are certainly newer boats to charter (Take Me There is a 1975 Gulfstar), and there are certainly boats that are bigger than ours (Take Me There is 53 feet long and almost 16 feet wide). But I would challenge you to find another charter boat that has been loved on, fully renovated, and has owners that have taken the time to install as many extras as we have or added as many personal touches. There are charging ports in ALL areas of the boat including your personal cabins to keep all of your devices charged and ready to use. There is a complete surround sound system to connect your phone to so you can enjoy the music of your choice throughout your charter, comfortable new mattresses, a fully equipped kitchen for us to serve you your favorite meals, and so much more! Take a look at our amenities page to see everything we offer.

We are excited to have you aboard Take Me There so you can add your reasons why you decided to sail with us. Book your exceptional experience today!
