Any 2-day charters in Florida?

My wife and I are considering traveling to Florida during the week of March 23rd. Are there any companies that give 2-day charters? Any day-sails? The location isn't too important, but Tampa or Panhandle would be easier to get to.

Day sails might be had by walking marinas. Could be the better idea since you could pick the day. They may not be well advertised since week charters is where the big money is. A call to numerous marinas might yield a name or two. Two day charters tend to be a poor deal. You waste a half day checking in and out.

Not a recomendation

Hello Seacret sailing is located in siesta key, THey can do day sailing or more than one day, you have to talk to them about price and timing. Nail it down early with all the details if you decide to.
They were a great source of information about a Manta, and well worth the time to try catamarans from someone used to sailing on half boats, but they were way to high strung for a relaxing trip for my tastes.
Good luck
There number is 941 346 7788

This is not intended to be a recommendation either good or bad, just information.
