The Deal

  • $199 for a two-hour private sailboat trip for up to four (a $400 value)

Aboard a small keelboat, such as a Pearson 26, American Sailing Association–certified instructors lead a gentle cruise to see the brilliant fall colors around an area lake such as Lake Minnetonka or White Bear Lake. During the journey, they help passengers sail and control the boat.

Northern Breezes Sailing School

Boasting a Gold Standard certification from the American Sailing Association, Northern Breezes Sailing School welcomes tender-footed sailors aboard a fleet of US Coast Guard–inspected boats for safe, exciting lessons. With a host of courses for beginners, intermediates, and advanced dread pirates, Northern Breezes acclimates students of all levels with both the practical and nuanced aspects of the art of wind harnessing.

Helmed by ASA instructor-evaluator Captain Thom Burns, the school has awarded more than 5,000 ASA certifications since its inception. Northern Breezes also offers camps for adventurous whippersnappers as well as boat charters and onshore courses on how to read the wind rippling across the water.
