Sailing lessons in the Gulf with East Pass Sailing


13 plus





Get ready for a hands-on private sailing lesson that will keep your teens on their toes as you head out through the East Pass, see some dolphins and raise the sails.

Under the watchful eye of life-long local Captain Christian (a Dad himself) and his skilled crew, your family will learn how to hoist the sails less than 30 minutes into the trip and even get a chance to take the wheel. Your newly appointed, honorary crew members will continue to learn the ropes (literally!) and quickly pick up sailing skills, lingo and maybe even a new passion!

The 45-foot Beneteau sailboat, Space Dancer, boasts two bathrooms and plenty of room for up to 6 passengers. This private adventure gives your family the opportunity to customize your day, including jumping in for a swim and searching for sea turtles and dolphins on your way back through the Harbor.

Local Scout Tip

Complimentary bottled water and an on-deck iced cooler are available, but you’re welcome to bring snacks and other drinks.
