Selina II Sailing Charters offers daily 2 hour excursions from the quaint Eastern Shore village of St Michaels MD, Chesapeake Bay, as well as romantic sunset cruises, private charters engagements, weddings, wine tastings and sailing lessons. Operated by Capt Iris Clarke, the granddaughter of the original owners, Selina II limits her guests to just 6 passengers for an intimate taste of the history of sail. Built in 1926 Selina II is 42’long and 16’ wide for a roomy and stable boat ride. She is the largest of the surviving vintage New England catboats. Her freshly varnished mahogany and brightly polished brass are the perfect setting for a nostalgic day out on the water. Special Events include Log Canoe Race viewing, 4th of July Fireworks, Moonlight Sails, and custom catered dinners.

Selina II operates from April 23 to Oct 31. We depart from the dock at the Harbour Inn and Marina in St Michaels and Capt. Iris gives a brief harbor tour. She talks about what you are seeing along the picturesque waterfront as well as a bit the history of St Michaels and about the story of her grandfather's boat, Selina II. Then we leave the harbor and go out into the Miles River, put up sails, and follow the wind. You are welcome to participate as a working crew member, or simply sit back and relax. We're here to help you completely enjoy your historic yacht experience. Guests often ask what they should bring, we recommend comfortable shoes, sunscreen, cameras, and a light jacket in spring and fall.

Our two hour day sailing trips are from 10am-12noon, 12:30-2:30, and 3:00-5:00 every day from April 23-Sept 30. Oct 1-31 hours are 11:30-1:30, and 2-4. Cost is $50pp, or $45 cash discount. In the evenings we set sail to enjoy the late afternoon sun and celebrate with Our Romantic Sunset Champagne Cruise. Trips are from 5:30-7:30pm, April 26-Sept 30. (Oct 1-31 is 4:30-6:30). Cost is $65pp, or $60 cash discount Sun-Fri. Sat $75pp. Plus there is a 10% amusement tax in St. Michaels harbor, and it is customary to tip the ship's mate like a restaurant, 15%-20%. Reservations are highly recommended.

Intimate wedding setting on a historic yacht with personalized custom vows. Want a special wedding that’s romantic, private, and unique? Dream of a destination wedding but want to skip the travel and expense? Weddings aboard the historic sailing yacht "Selina II" in the quaint Chesapeake Bay town of St Michaels, MD offer all the benefits of getting away at a fraction of the price. For people who love the water, weddings aboard “Selina II” offer a unique venue for tying the knot. The only historic sailing vessel on the Eastern Shore specializing in ship board ceremonies, this 1926 yacht provides an intimate setting for a ceremony at sea.

Operated by the granddaughter of the original owners, 3rd generation Capt Iris Clarke officiates aboard the "Selina II” wearing formal whites to complete the nautical theme.. Typically ships’ captains are not permitted to perform weddings, but onboard the “Selina II”, Capt Iris Clarke is also an ordained minister, allowing her to offer you a customized ceremony from traditional to alternative, creating your own personalized Love Boat experience.

“Selina II’s” packages start at $500 , a savings of up to $750 over a typical Cruise Liner’s package starting at $1250. Whether it’s a portside wedding or a wedding under sail, “Selina II” packages include Decorations, Ships Flowers, Champagne Toast, Customized Vows, Officiant Fees and Maryland State Taxes.

Selina II’s staff helps couples skip the stress of working with wedding planners by creating a personalized nautical event to treasure through each anniversary. Brides can choose from an array of ceremony enhancements including Photography, Videography, live bag piper, premium wedding cake, custom music program, etc.

With full sails up, “Selina II’s” brightly polished bronze and freshly varnished wood sets the stage for wedding photographs that are unforgettable. The soft sound of water lapping on her hull creates a relaxed atmosphere for every ship board ceremony. Especially suited to second marriages and elopements, “Selina II’s” 1926 Gatsby era elegance simply says ‘upscale and romantic‘.

“Selina II” operates from the beginning of May until the end of October
