Setting sail from Waterford Harbor Marina, Sail Ventures USA's Coast Guard–licensed staff bestows novice boaters with fractional yachting voyages on fully equipped water cruisers. The two-hour group introductory sailing lesson for two or four people explores the sights of Kemah Boardwalk as the luxury liner slices through the waves of Clear Lake and the congested mermaid traffic of Galveston Bay. Pairing water duos with up to two other couples, a knowledgeable sea captain will instill students with basic navigational prowess and agile plank-walking skills on a 2012 Beneteau 34 boat, toting comfort-inducing amenities such as an air-conditioned cabin, a flat-screen TV, and a restroom.

Using the same lavish Beneteau 34 aqua vessel, the private three-hour introductory sailing trip for up to six people includes a professional crew to handle boating responsibilities as guests enjoy views of the local wildlife and learn the history of the land. At any point in the water adventure, temporary deckhands up for a challenge can help with the boating duties such as cranking the winch, handling the lines, or lulling noisy seabirds to sleep with passages from Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

Sail Ventures

Members of Sail Ventures take turns cruising in a fleet of new or late-model Jeanneau and Beneteau sailboats. The system, known as fractional yachting, teams up members who share their luxury vessels on a monthly basis. A rigorous training program ensures sailors are seaworthy, and the club picks up maintenance, slip fees, and other costs. Sail Ventures also hosts special membership events throughout the year, such as regattas, boat christenings, and boat-show parties.
