Sunset Sails

Feel the stress drain away with the gentle rocking of the boat and the “sploosh” of the waves against the side. Smell the fresh moist breeze. Listen to the peaceful sounds of nature. Then rela-a-ax … as Captain Nance brings the boat “about” into the beautiful Texas sunset. Is your anniversary coming up soon? What a perfect way to celebrate – with an intimate sail into the sunset!

Be smart – don’t drink and drive a boat. – Joe Cannon

Day Cruises

Sail in the shade of the cockpit canopy or “catch some rays” on the deck. See the ducks, seagulls, turtles, and sometimes an egret or heron. Sit back and rela-a-ax… or take the helm for a while. Bring your camera, snacks, and drinks! Bring your family!

Informal Sailing Lessons

Your U.S. Coast Guard licensed Master, Captain Nance, can give you sailing & safety instruction and techniques. An informal lesson can be combined with a charter. One or two people may want to learn about sailing while their friends may want to kick back and relax.
