You can sail in the desert. We're not talking about 'Prairie Schooner' covered wagon going to the California gold rush desert sailing. We have honest to goodness water sailing right here in the Valley of the Sun. Just northwest of Phoenix lies Lake Pleasant, a 10,000-acre man-made lake held back by Waddel Dam. The lake is large enough to support two marinas, Pleasant Harbor Marina on the east side and Scorpion Bay on the west. There is a multitude of water sports to choose from at the lake, but our personal favorite is sailing. The lake is a great place to learn to sail as the wind conditions are quite variable and give the student an opportunity to experience a wide range of shifty conditions. If you can sail on Lake Pleasant, then the ocean will be a steady breeze. We have more sunny days here than not, so the weather is rarely a factor. It may be a little hot for some at times, but one can always go jump in the lake! While most other parts of the country are packing their boats up for winter, we are just starting our season here in Arizona. We have a small fleet of 25-foot sailboats available for charter to qualified sailors. She can accommodate up to 6 people. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
Fantastic day of sailing with Captain Tom and Ryan. Tom is an expert sailor and has an unmatched knowledge sailing and Arizona. My dad, brother and myself couldn't be happier with the experience, accommodations and conversation. Looking forward to taking Tom's sailing school! Thanks again
This day of sailing was superb! Our Captain was friendly and answered all our questions will enthusiasm and humor. We had 6 hours with a variety of wind, speed, thrill, and chill times. Our comfort and Safety was always at the forefront .Sailing is a fabulous way to explore Lake Pleasant!
I had a great time sailing Lake Pleasant, Tom was very accommodating... I will not forget the experience... Thanks to Tom and Steve.
Tom was a great boat host, he was communicative, helpful, and got us all set up to sail:) would definitely rent from him again!
Tom had the boat set and ready for us the day prior to departure. The boat was in fantastic shape. I would rent from Tom again.
