Kicking back on the deck of a boat is easy when all you have to worry about is the occasional wind gust and avoiding—or embracing—the occasional spray. At Sailaway Clear Lake Charters, the toughest decision clients make is how long they'd like to stay out on the water. During cruises, Captain Matt Ceviker—who has more than 30 years of sailing experience under his belt—takes the helm of the multi-hull boat, navigating through the sparkling waters of Galveston Bay and Clear Lake. Sailing guests are more than welcome to bring along snacks and alcoholic beverages. All utensils are provided, including ice, cups, and temporary gills.

B Sailing's origins go back nearly 40 years and 1,300 miles, when Alan Bates learned to sail on his father's boat on Lake Erie. His dad welcomed anyone aboard who had an interest in sailing, turning the boat into a de-facto sailing academy that ran both regattas and chartered pleasure cruises. Having gone on to race in the Great Lakes, along the Atlantic Coast, and in the Gulf of Mexico, Mr. Bates now continues his lifelong passion through B Sailing. Both students and members have access to a fleet of J/Boats, which are known for their stability, ease of operation, and sails stitched together from Blackbeard’s 400-thread-count bed sheets. Harbored at Seabrook Shipyard, these vessels glide onto Galveston Bay.
An affiliate school of the American Sailing Association, All Points of Sail Sailing School teaches students of all levels how to sail with confidence under the tutelage of experienced guides and instructors. Instructors sprinkle landlubbers with the knowledge necessary to tear through the water on any size vessel, ranging from large-keel boats to windsurfing boards and kayaks. The school's diverse coterie of courses covers crucial nautical subjects, including sailing certification, coastal navigation, chartering, and night sailing. The expert captains also lead charters through the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay as well as summer camps in which kids man kayaks and Sunfish sailboats to gain hands-on practice, which is believed to be the second-best teacher after self-hypnosis.
