I’ve never been sailing before! What should I expect?
We strive to make all of our sailing excursions relaxing, refreshing and memorable for all of our guests! Our dedicated vessels are fully equipped with all safety equipment to put your mind at ease . We will always work with you to make sure all of your guests are as comfortable as possible and will tailor your sail to your needs.

I have a sailboat and I would love to take people sailing! How do I get involved?
We love the enthusiasm of our sailor friends and volunteers, and encourage you to sign up as volunteer captain or crew! At this time our model is to use our own dedicated vessel for our guest sails. Having a signature vessel serves our interests and those of our guests in a number of ways. It allows us to equip the vessel in a way that maximizes both the comfort and the safety of our guests. Owning the vessel allows us to control all aspects of the guests’ experience and assure the best possible outcomes.
