Private Sailing Parties
Kalmar Nyckel is available for private sailing charters for up to 49 passengers, schedule permitting. The ship is a great facility for a special event, unique family outing, corporate team-building, or as a meeting or party venue.
Guests will have the opportunity to help haul lines, set sails, or sit back and relax and enjoy the afternoon on the water. Select a pirate-themed event, complete with crew in pirate garb and the Jolly Roger, or a traditional event with crew wearing their blue-polo-and-khaki uniforms. You may choose to have a crew member give a history talk, or you can provide musical entertainment (max 2-3 musicians). There is an area for setting up drinks or a small bar and a location that typically accommodates a full spread of food on deck, supplied by the caterer of your choice. The ship will gladly accommodate flowers or a company banner and can set up a gift shop for your guests to buy memorabilia, if you so desire. Please note: entertainers and caterers will count toward a total passenger count of 49.
Let us share our experiences in making a special memory for you and your group. Please contact the office to find a mutually-agreeable date and time and make your arrangements.
