Enjoy light refreshments ashore and fabulous views of the city from the end of the pier or aboard a Rhodes 19 during your half hour sail!
Reservations are strongly encouraged. Sailboat voyages last 20 minutes and are first come, first served. Last sail departs at 1:40pm.
Reservations are strongly encouraged. Please sign a waiver prior to arrival and arrive 10 minutes early.
For families looking to bring more than 4, our boats can accommodate 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 small children.
How is the event structured?
Guests are welcome to come and go as they please but are only guaranteed a sail if they sign-up before arrival. For walk-ins, we will get take down the name of your group when you arrive and get you out on the water as soon as possible. For reservations, we will work hard to stick to your scheduled time but ask for grace as sailing times vary based on conditions.
There will be light food and beverages available along with a few activities for the kiddos to keep them engaged while they wait. Our staff is on land and available to answer any questions you may have about our Youth and Adult programs, please look for our smiling faces and staff T-shirts.
Do I need any experience on the water or with sailboats?
No! This event is open to anyone who is interested in sailing, but no prior knowledge is required.
Can I bring my kids?
Yes, please bring the whole family! Sailing is a sport for all ages. The boats for Open House can accommodate up to 4 adults comfortably (or 2 adults, 3 kids), so if you have a larger group we will need to split between multiple boats. We have lifejackets for people of all sizes (infant-XXL)
Do I need to reserve a spot?
