- $95 for Two Hour Family Harbor Cruise or Private Sailing Lesson for Up to Four ($190 value)
Seasoned instructors captain Courageous Sailing’s fleet of 19-foot Rhodes sailboats on Boston Harbor, initiating students in the ways of the sea during private two-hour sailing lessons. Seafarers learn the ropes of steering and operating sailboats, confidently taking the tiller under instructor guidance to navigate the waves without trying to saddle up a whale. For a relaxing evening, groups can opt to let the captain steer while they enjoy the scenic, salty waterscape.
Some people may see sailing as a way to save money on gas when traveling by water, but Courageous Sailing, recognized as a top 10 community sailing center by US Sailing and Sail Magazine, sees it as a way to educate, build leadership skills, and promote life-long learning. Since 1987, the nonprofit organization has hosted sailing programs for Boston's youth along with providing accessible sailing lessons and membership to the community at large.
