Naples will soon have a new cat in town
Introducing Miss Naples, the 48’ custom-built catamaran based on the Kurt Hughes “Yellow Bird” design.
Miss Naples will offer year-round cruises perfect for all ages including beach shelling, sight-seeing, and sunset viewing cruises. The boat is also available for private charter events including weddings, corporate events, private parties, and more.
Miss Naples is Coast Guard certified to hold up to 48 passengers and operates daily from her dock at Port O Call Marina. The boat is open-air with a canopy on top for guests who do not want to be directly in the sun, providing comfort and enjoyment for all. All cruises are personally narrated and run by Naples Princess Cruises. The company has been operating in Naples for more than 26 years, offering daily public cruises and private charters.
“We are beyond excited to add Miss Naples to our fleet. She is a unique, first-class boat that is going to provide a fun relaxing and memorable experience for our locals and visitors. Sailing is a great experience for all ages and we are thrilled to be able to be providing this experience.”
– Jenny Gezella, President of Naples Princess Cruises
Miss Naples will offer three daily public cruises year-round:
Beach Shelling Cruise
Calling all shelling enthusiasts! Enjoy one of Florida’s timeless activities as you comb some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. From Junonia shells to Murek and Conch Shells, Naples’ coast holds beautiful and rare shells where no two are ever alike. Grab your hat, your sunscreen and a bag for a crisp morning sail and bring home the treasures of paradise.
The Beach Shelling Cruise will sail daily from 9am-12pm. Book Miss Naples Shelling Cruise
Some say the best views of Naples are from the water. Experience the “other side” as you sit back and relax, taking in the gorgeous views as you cruise through the bay, past the multimillion-dollar homes of Port Royal and sail the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding nature. From the beautiful, sprawling mangroves and swaying palm trees to playful dolphins and lounging manatees, Miss Naples offers an up-close encounter of the ocean’s ecosystem.
The Sightseeing Cruise will sail daily at 1-3pm. Book Miss Naples Sightseeing Cruise
With hues of orange, purples, and pinks, Naples sunsets have earned their title as the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever experience. As the sun sets and the waves gently crest, take in the breath-taking colors painted in the sky all around you aboard Miss Naples.
The Sunset Cruise will sail daily, cruise times are dependent on the time of year. Book Miss Naples Sunset Cruise
