My husband and cousin enjoyed it very much. It was a bit too much a pleasure time as opposed to a learning time.

Captain was very patient and answered all of the questions the crew asked. Loved the nautical history lesson about the terms we use in daily life(3 sheets to the wind and tell tale signs). Hope to go back and take my sons.

What You'll Get

Sailing around the world is much easier when you learn which knots are edible and why dolphins aren't marriage material. Learn the basics with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a three-hour introduction to sailing session at South Coast Sailing Adventures in Kemah (a $159 value).

An official American Sailing Association training facility, South Coast Sailing Adventures sports more than 20 instructors on its staff, all of whom are certified by the ASA and licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard. During a three-hour introduction to sailing session, aspiring sailors acquire naval knowledge in the most crucial subjects, including basic sailing terminology, rigging techniques, and basic sailing maneuvers for use on the open water, where boats are often eager to impress their friends. Climb aboard On Belay or Takin' Names, the school's two Colgate 26 vessels, to learn the ins & outs and starboards & ports of the majestic craft, which were specifically designed for training.

About South Coast Sailing Adventures

South Coast Sailing Adventures operates a floating fleet of 18 sailboats with instructors certified by the American Sailing Association and more than 20 captains licensed by the US Coast Guard at the helm. Incorporating their vast cruising, racing, and Bermuda Triangle–averting experience into lessons, several of South Coast's instructors have been the recipients of an ASA Instructor of the Year Award, and the entire training facility was voted one of ASA's Outstanding Sailing Schools in 2006. Courses range from basic keelboat instruction, which offers the chance for beginners to mettle in a Colgate 26-foot sailboat, to catamaran sailing, which teaches advanced students to skipper and crew a 30- to 50-foot multihull sailboat. Beyond lessons, sunset and moonlight cruises chart courses toward romance, basking in the glow of the stars or distant underwater volcanoes. Special-event sails include options as varied as an Irish potluck dinner and scenic day sails around Galveston Bay and the Kemah Boardwalk.
