As well as having fun sailing, you will learn important life skills such as resilience and leadership.

We can tailor a course to your needs!

The Boatshed has the ability to create a program to suit your individual requirements. These programs can range from sailing experiences through to competitions and team building events incorporating on and/or off water activities.

Some of the more popular options include

  • A 1 hour “Get In and Go” session.
  • A 1 hour Discover Sailing Experience
  • A 2.5 hour learn to sail session

Option 1. Get in and go   $25/person/hour

Sailing has never been so easy with these simplified boats. All you need is a short 10 minute briefing and you are good to get out on the water.

These simplified boats have been designed not to tip over, they have a comfortable seat and are steer with a joystick. You will finish up with a short race to see who has mastered the water.

We have 10 boats which can seat two people. We are happy to rotate people through if a larger booking is required.

Option 2. Discover Sailing experience $85/person/hour

The Discover Sailing Experience gives you a great opportunity to learn how to sail with an experienced skipper on your boat. Your skipper will have your boat ready to go as you arrive and take you out on the water to teach you as you go. Feel free to sit back and enjoy the ride or take a chance and grab the tiller yourself.

We have 12 boats which can seat up to 3 people. We are happy to rotate people through if a larger booking is required.
