Private Sailing Lessons

Learn the life sport of sailing with Down Cape’s private sailing instruction.

Our experienced instructors teach the basics of sailing, covering vocabulary, techniques and good seamanship.  Students will gain on-the-water experience from the very first lesson.  Couples and families are encouraged to learn together.

RATES:          1HR        2HR
1-2 ppl           $155      $235
Each additional person adds $20 to total rate.

We have several boats to choose from, each with unique characteristics.  Hobie catamarans tend to be faster, wetter and more popular with the under-30 demographic (especially during our warmest months).  Our Daysailer is a more traditional monohull and tends to offer a dryer ride.
