The experience was awesome. I signed up for SSS's emails and have plans to go again. The instructor was very patient.

Great summer activity. My boyfriend and I sailed with another couple. We all got a chance to skipper. Our instructor, Audrey, was fantastic!

What You'll Get

Come sail away from the daily grind and into the gentle, sweet-smelling waters that have inspired countless sonnets, oil paintings, and Styx. For $65, today's Groupon gets you and up to three of your friends an hour-long sailing lesson (a $135 value) from South Bay Sailing in Redondo Beach Marina. South Bay's down-to-earth, experienced sailsmen take you out and show you how to step the mast, rig the sail, and cruise out on the open water on a 26-foot boat.

South Bay is known for its racing and competitive sailing programs, and its instruction focuses on the performance aspect of sailing along with teaching the basics. Don't be surprised if, after your lesson, you find yourself spending afternoons wondering about wind direction, hoisting makeshift mainsails in the garage, and pulling cleats and winches out of your pajama-pant drawstring. Gliding gracefully and quietly across the ocean in a boat that needs no batteries, engine, or nuclear reactor is a sublime experience. Turning the boat to port or starboard is pretty good, too.

Take friends, family, or your friend's family and learn how to sail, or kick back and enjoy the one-hour cruise. Sailing is a skill that can last a lifetime, and a bout with three friends at South Bay is a stellar way to get started. If one hour isn't enough to satiate cravings for water gliding, you can purchase multiple Groupons and string them together for multiple hours.

You must call to schedule your lesson at least a month before the Groupon's expiration date of December 14.


South Bay Sailing's owner has been featured in The Daily Breeze:

  • ...the man behind South Bay Sailing... cruises the Pacific on one of his four boats every day of the week. If he's racing, all the better.... Averaging about three races a week in the summer, [he] aims to have students gain the skills needed to join him in weekly yacht club-sponsored races. – Megan Bagdonas, The Daily Breeze
