3 hour Sailing Experiences on North Lake Tahoe - $500
Hi! We have pulled the boat out of the water for winter. So Sad! We'll be back in the water next year May 1st 2021. Can't wait to sail with you then! - Nick Take your family sailing for an afternoon or evening on beautiful Lake Tahoe with our skippered yacht "Aero". Aero is a 33 foot keelboat that is safe, easily controlled and is fun to sail. We can accommodate private groups up to six people with ages 5 and up. Groups are not mixed so it's just you and your family/friends. We provide the lifejackets and you provide the smiles! Take the helm and learn how to sail or just sit back and relax. Cost is $500 for a 3 hour session daily. Sailing times are from 2PM to 5PM and 5:30PM to 8:30PM daily including weekends. Earlier sailing times are not available due to lack of wind. The boat type is called a Hobie 33 and you can google that for more information and pictures. She's built light and for speed and the boat actually raced to Hawaii twice in the Pacific Cup! There is a cabin on the boat to store coolers and clothing and you can bring whatever beverages and snacks that you like. We serve non - alcoholic beverages on the boat but you are welcome to bring alcohol if you like. Please know that the boat does not have a toilet on board but you can use the public restroom prior to boarding. The boat is moored on a buoy and so we take a rubber 5 person dinghy out to the boat to board her. If your group has six people we generally make two trips. Older people who are a bit wobbly may have difficulty boarding the boat so please keep that in mind. We meet at the Lake Forest Boat Ramp just outside Tahoe City in North Lake Tahoe 15 minutes prior to sailing time so you can get a full three hours of sailing! What to bring: Please have all of your group members wear close toed shoes or sneakers. Bring some warm clothing as it can be colder on the water especially if its windy. Please do enquire if the boat is available for your desired day because the calendar on this site blocks out multiple time frames even if one is available. On the other motorboat listings you'll see that a lot of trips are cut short due to high wind. Our sailing experience thrives on wind and we can get right out into the middle of the lake without using gas. Come sailing with us and discover the beauty of sailing on Lake Tahoe! - Nick

The Hobie 33 is a delight to sail. It was responsive and loved to go fast! My family enjoyed our afternoon sail very much!
Great experience with a friendly and knowledgeable captain. Would do it again!
We had a wonderful time on Nick’s boat! Two of our friends had never been sailing before, so we weren’t sure how it was going to go, but Nick made everybody feel comfortable and his experience really showed. There was plenty of heeling, laughter and fun. We highly recommend this experience with Nick.
My family and I had an absolute wonderful time sailing on Lake Tahoe with Nick. Everything experienced was professional. Nick also took the time and energy to teach all on board as much as they wanted to learn about sailing, which was a lot!!!. During the course of the trip, we had complete confidence in his sailing skills and safety of the vessel. Such a magical and wonderful Tahoe experience. Thank you Nick
We had a blast. Nicholas is so chill and knowledgeable. Totally recommend this experience!!
