If you love a full moon and a starlit sky out at sea, this is the trip to take. We can guarantee an interesting evening.

Taking a full moon cruise isn't necessarily only about the moon, it is also about the stars and the planets that can be seen with the naked eye, and out on the open sea the sky is spectacular.

If the full moon happens during the night the trip will be something special and what we see depends on the season and time of day. The first light to appear on the night sky is Venus like a bright light bulb, and depending on the time of year you will be able to see the other planets with the naked eye, except Neptune and Uranus, who are too far away.

This year we will be lucky to see eight meteor showers, the first one being Lyrids in April. The zodiac constellations are also up there to see, again depending on season, and of course the most common constellations are visible all year round, like Orion with his belt, Ursa major and Casseopeia. . We have binoculars aboard to help with visibility, to see those far away stars and planets. If you are not an avid stargazer, we will point them out for you.


Because the time of the full moon varies so much, from early afternoon to late night, the trip will start at varying hours. But we are flexible, so midnight or noon, we will take you out there.

Because of these different hours, the is similar to both the Sunrise and the Sunset cruises. Depending on the season both the sun and the full moon might be up at the same time, and on the same trip you might see at magical sunrise or a spectacular sunset and a starlit sky. Who knows what nature will bring us?

The trip starts when you are safely aboard and are served a welcome drink, our preference being something chilled and bubbly, but other options are of course available. On the brightest days we can guarantee you spectacular views of the meeting of three countries and two continents. Spain and Gibraltar in Europe and Morocco on the northern coast of Africa.

If time permits, before bringing Tealie back to her berth we will take a ten minute detour and follow the canal to the inner parts of Sotogrande marina, past the luxurious and colourful apartments at the frontline of the canal.

Should you get bored just sitting around on deck and there are no whales or dolphins to watch, you are welcome to take the helm or help with the sails. If you would like to do some fishing or go scuba diving, or have any other activity in mind, feel free to bring your equipment along. If you want to go swimming we have snorkelig gear and towels at your disposal.


Before boarding Tealie, we would like to pass on some friendly tips.
  • Even though it is warm and sunny when you board Tealie, the sea air can get humid and chilly, especially around sunset. For your own comfort, we recommend bringing a warm jumper or jacket. But not to worry, we have blankets aboard should you forget.
  • Please bring proper shoes. The deck and floor might be slippery with water and we want to avoid all accidents. Our favourite shoes are Sketchers with rubber soles but if the weather is warm enough, barefoot is a good option.
  • We have life vests for those not feeling too comfortable aboard, also for medium sized pets.
  • The all-inclusive buffet includes food and drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. If you have any allergies or have some special dietary wishes or needs, please let us know.
  • If you wish to let your family and friends know where you are sailing, they can follow you by searching for TEALIE on VesselFinder or by clicking on MarineTraffic.


Motion sickness is the worst, especially wobbling on a sailboat with no immediate escape. However, if you tend to get motion sick, don't worry, there are some precautions to take before and during the trip.

Before the trip
  • Buy antihistamines, either prescription or over-the-counter, at drug stores or supermarkets. The major ones are cyclizine (Marezine) and dimenhydrinate (Dramamine). If you have children between the ages of 2 and 12, dimenhydrinate (Dramamine) or diphenhydramine (Benadryl) might be helpful. Always check with your doctor or the pharmacist, and read the label well before taking the medicine.
  • Get a scopolamine (Transderm Scop) from your doctor. It's an adhesive patch you put behind your ear a few hours before you come aboard.
  • Buy a pack of lozenges, preferably something with ginger.
  • Do not eat a big meal before boarding.
  • Lay of alcohol, caffeine and drink lots of water.
  • Bring a distraction - like music with headphones.
During the trip
  • If you brought music, listen to it as it might add some distraction.
  • Find a better spot. Many find relief by taking the helm.
  • Lie down if you can, or shut your eyes, and keep your head still.
  • Follow the horizon, don't look down or read.
  • Dry, salty crackers might help.
  • Anything with ginger, i.e. Ginger ale.

If nothing of the above helps, we will give you a bucket and head back to the marina.
