What you'll do

We will meet up in downtown Austin and chat for a few minutes so I can gauge your experience level and make adjustments from there. no experience necessary and you should learn something no matter what level you are. We will setup the rigging together and load the boat into the water so you'll have the confidence and knowledge to do it yourself in the future. This tour is best for 1 or 2 people but if you have a group and want to rotate people in and out we can work something out and add additional hours. If you're 1 or 2 people, just book one session and if you're more book an additional session and we can run them consecutively while the others wait on a nice dock under a tree and watch from the shore.
Other things to note
This is a small sailboat and a physically active tour. You don't have to know how to swim but you should be in decent shape to go on the boat.

Meet your host, Aaron

Host on Airbnb since 2010
  • Identity verified
I've sailed a lot and mostly bigger boats. A typical year for me starts with a trip from Alabama or Florida to Cuba, Mexico, and Belize and back. You can learn all the fundamentals for a bigger trip like that right here in downtown Austin on a small sunfish style boat. My personal sailboat is a 1977 Dolphin Sr. I enjoy teaching sailing and I'd love to get out on the water more often so this seems like the perfect setup!

Where you'll be

I will be at the boat ramp and I'll send you a youtube video of how to find me once the booking is set.
