What we're about

SAILING OPPORTUNITIES with SEAS Morris Chapter
Society for the Education of American Sailors 
SEAS Morris Chapter is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to sailing and the teaching of sailing skills.

*Have you ever wanted to learn to sail?
*Do you love sailing but don't have a boat?
*Would you like to be a part of an organization dedicated to sailing, and having fun? We have gone sailing in the Caribbean, Greece, Croatia, Tahiti, Spain, and other locations.

SEAS is more than just sailing, it's a club. Throughout the year we offer a variety of parties, sailing events, and trips in addition to regular monthly meetings. It's a great way to meet people, looking for sailing opportunities, or who have a boat and are looking for a crew.

Join us at our monthly general meetings at Jersey Girl Brewing, 426 Sand Shore Rd, Hackettstown, NJ - open to the public: 1st Wednesday of each month. 7:00 - 9:00 pm.

Sailing in Belize - UPDATE

Dream Yacht Charter

Let's Get Ready for Belize!

UPDATE - Trip is full, thank you for your interest. Keep an eye out for upcoming sailing trips.

Ahoy, Sailors! We are very excited to announce that some of our members are organizing a fantastic week-long bareboat sailing cruise in Belize, in January 2022, and you don't want to miss it!

Stats for the trip:

Dates: January 15-23, 2022

Cost: $1300

Includes: boat, a provisions budget, shirt, and a restaurant dinner in Belize.

Boat: Our boat will be a Fountaine Pajot 44ft catamaran with 4 cabins and 4 heads.

Does Not Include: airfare, hotel, customs/departure fees, dining ashore, trip insurance (recommend you get).

Payments:

Email: [masked] for details

Refunds: Refunds will be given if a replacement is found. A fee may apply. See details when signing up.

Space is very limited, so registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

The following is the proposed itinerary, which will be used as a general guide:

Day 1: Arrive at Robert’s Grove Marina, Placencia, in the afternoon to provision and acquaint yourself with the boat. Placencia has established itself as a popular resort peninsula with its nearby mountains, ancient Mayan ruins, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary for Jaguars and lush rainforests providing plenty to see inland. Make time in your itinerary to delve into the culture and natural wonders of Belize.

Day 2: Head to Wippari Cay (or Whipray), a short sail from Placencia and known as a “paradise surrounded by fish”. On the cay, you’ll find the Whipray Caye Fishing Lodge, known for its saltwater fly fishing, fine permit waters and coral snorkeling. The lodge is run by Julian Cabra, who has been fishing since he was six years old.

Day 3: Not far away is South Water Cay with its palm-fringed beaches and fantastic snorkeling. The northern tip is super close to the barrier reef drop off, where you can enjoy swimming or diving with colorful fish, groupers, sharks, rays and dolphins. On the island are Pelican Beach and Blue Marlin resorts, where you can dine and enjoy a cocktail if you’ve made an advance reservation. The east coast will give you spectacular views of the sunset.

Day 4: You’ll find five moorings at Coco Plum Cay and superb snorkeling with barracudas, eagle rays and starfish. Relax on the beaches and dine at Coco Plum Island Resort, where you can also snorkel among the reefs, kayak the mangroves, explore underwater caves and discover more of the barrier reef. You can pick up organized dives to the atolls or blue hole here too and if you like spotting birds, head to nearby Man-O-War Cay. You can walk across the ocean, chest deep, to the private resort island of Thatch Cay.

Day 5: Lagoon Cay is a great stop off for kayaking with its lush vegetation, coastline and internal lagoon. Hop between nearby cays and stop by Tarpon Cay with its lodge, permit waters and bonefishing.

Day 6: Sail to Hatchet Cay and try night snorkeling under the pier lights to spot fish and octopus. Boats are welcome to moor, so you can dine at the Lionfish Grill and go on organized dives. Enjoy Wi-Fi to update your Instagram with wonderful vacation photos and pick up water and ice.

Day 7: Hop to Ranguana Cay where, for a $10 per person island access fee, you can dine, drink cocktails at the beach bar, hire kayaks, dispose of rubbish and pick up ice. This low lying island has a real deserted feel. Sail onwards to undeveloped Lark Cay, which has a natural pool and private sandy beaches to stroll and sunbathe on.

Day 8: Head back to base.

Be advised that you will need a valid passport (valid 6 months beyond the last day of your trip).

Note: Before joining the trip, we will meet for lunch to discuss the trip.

Also, available spots are shared cabins.

Direct questions to Paul: [masked]

Future trips include: Exumas, Naples, French Riviera, more to come.
