Safe Harbor - 75ft Faith

4772 Safe Harbor Way
Jacksonville FL, United States

Safe Harbor welcomes you aboard a luxurious mega yacht for a cruising and fishing adventure in Jacksonville, Florida. You will sail along the picturesque St John’s River on a half or full day trip, and experience true luxury and exceptional customer service. Safe Harbor has a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

You will sail aboard a 75-foot Johnson mega yacht powered by two 1000 HP Mercedes engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. The yacht is fully equipped with all the luxury furnishings you would expect and more. It features 4 stunning bedrooms, 5 air-conditioning units, 4 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a superb multimedia system for your entertainment.

The flybridge can be used for sightseeing along St John’s River, which gives spectacular views of the swamps and marshes that go on for miles. St John’s is the longest river in Florida and it is rich in fish species such as Flounder, Tarpon, Redfish, and Sheepshead.
You will have a chance to fish for these species using Penn International reels, or you can just relax and enjoy the scenery.

Sailing with Captain Carlos will be an exceptional experience for everyone on board, as this great and knowledgeable man steers the yacht along the “lazy” St. John’s River.

Safe Harbour Boys Academy is a therapeutic boarding school and a non-profit organization that helps young troubled boys stay on the right path. This is done by providing guidance and disciplined maritime and seamanship training, which act as a therapeutic framework for turning around at-risk teenage boys.

By booking a trip with Safe Harbor, you are making a donation to the Safe Harbor Boys Home, helping a worthy cause and supporting these your men in achieving to become first mates, and hopefully, one day, captains.

About the Charter Operator

Safe Harbor Boys Home
Jacksonville, Florida, United States
Member since February 2017
Safe Harbor is a project of Dr. Doug Smith and his lovely wife Robbie, who started the Safe Harbor Boys Home and Academy over 30 years ago. They did so in order to help at-risk teenage boys turn their lives around and devote their time to learning about seamanship. The program of therapeutic maritime training has a success rate of over 95%. The boys work at the dock and on the boats, which is where they also sleep. They maintain the boats fully, learning to become mates and, hopefully, successful captains. By booking a trip with Safe Harbor you donating directly to the Boys Home. A number of Captains assist Safe Harbor by helping with your charter. Some Captains also provide volunteer instruction to the boys in a variety of maritime education classes, both on the water and in the classroom.

This was an awesome experience! First time deep sea fishing and the crew was top notch! The boat was in excellent condition and we had an absolute blast! I love the fact that all the proceeds for our trip go to the Safe Harbor Boys Home too! Thanks Doc and crew for making our experience top notch! Keep up the great work!
