About this pro

Ranked the #1 thing to do in St. Michaels for 5 years running,
Selina II offers romantic sailboat rides on the Chesapeake Bay. Upscale and exclusive, we sail daily from April to October.

Very upscale and exclusive, the 1926 historic yacht Selina II limits her passengers to just 6 guests for an intimate taste of the history of sail.

Also available are private sailing lessons, wine tasting cruises, beer tasting sails, crab cake lunches, moonlight outings, overnight excursions, dinner cruises, sunset champagne cruises, and private charters.

Selina II's polished bronze and freshly varnished mahogany set the tone for your adventure in sailing history. Perfect for popping the question, engagements are a specialty. Do you want a wedding that's unique? Romance abounds with our 'Ceremony at Sea' bridal package with Captain Iris (officiant).

    We recently had our wedding on Selina II with Captain Iris who was amazing! She was far beyond accomodating to us and our wedding guests. She was very informative on preparations we had to have before hand and her communication with us was prompt and valuable. We couldnt have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. Everything turned out perfect and we couldnt be more thankful for her and her first mate!!! Thank you Captain Iris and her first mate for making our special day that much better!!!

    You were a pleasure to work with, and I was honored you picked me to be your officiant. Thanks for sharing your special day with me, I'm so happy for you both, you are perfect for each other.

    We sailed with Captain Iris on our engagement and she also officiated our wedding. The Selina ll is immaculate and historical as a wooden ship should be. Everything was professionally managed and our cake was delicious too!! Captain Iris runs a "Taut Ship."

    My partner of nearly 19 years and I were married aboard Selina II on July 25, 2013. Captain Iris Clarke composed a very moving wedding ceremony that was truly customized to our relationship. The "Ceremony under sail" package is reasonably priced and considers every detail of a delightfully memorable wedding. The ship is beautiful and immaculately maintained. First Mate Frank was friendly and engaging and both he and the Captain wore dress whites for the ceremony. It was absolutely perfect. It is my pleasure to recommend Captain Clarke and the services she offers aboard the Selina II. Any event aboard will be a unique and memorable one.

    I truly enjoy working together with the folks who get married aboard Selina II to create an experience that is unique and completely tailored to their own personalities. I'm so glad your special day was a total success! I hope we get to have you aboard again sometime, perhaps an anniversary or birthday.....Capt Iris

    A wonderful sailing experience customized for the day. We have joined Captain Iris on 5 different occasions and each time was a fantastic educational and relaxing journey. Captain Iris and her staff really do put 150% effort into making sure your experience is unique, enjoyable, and first class.

    Sailing on the Selina II was a wonderful experience. Capt. Iris is a welcoming, professional and engaging host. She has great knowledge of the area and shares it in the form of delightfully entertaining anecdotes.

    Great captain with a tremendous desire to clean up the river. Have enjoyed sailing with her on two vacations and enjoyed the time spent with her and her crew (John).
    Capt Iris C. Aug 6, 2013

    Yes, I am super concerned about the health of the Bay, a place I make my home. But hopefully my concern to have everyone have a great time comes through too. Thanks for your review!

    I worked with Capt Iris Clarke on the event of my 5th anniversary - I took the wife to St Michael's for a weekend away. By far the highlight of our trip was our evening sailing on Selina. Capt Iris is clearly an experienced sailor, and with the help of her first mate made for a romantic evening. I highly recommend this excursion into the Chesapeake with Capt Clarke.
    Capt Iris C. Aug 6, 2013

    Thank you so much for your kind words! I often get asked if I ever take Selina II out just for myself to have fun, and I honestly answer, "Yes, 4 times a day". But I dont add, our guests make it even better. Folks like you add so much to our experience. Thanks for sailing Selina II
