This low student count will allow for distancing.  Note: as a private lesson, the number of hours on the water may vary depending on the number of students onboard.

✨✨✨✨✨Sail Dallas would love your feedback. Post a review to our profile. ✨✨✨✨✨

✨✨✨✨✨Christopher says: Best instructors in DFW! Definitely a worthwhile experience if you’re looking to get into sailing or improving your current sailing ability. I was taught by both Captain Matt and Tom. Both of them have years of experience and knowledge so don’t be afraid to ask questions. I made my fair share of mistakes (quite embarassingly) and surely tested Matt and Tom’s patience. My 3-month membership is up, but I will definitely be returning once my schedule calms down. ✨✨✨✨✨

✨✨✨✨✨Dennis says: Great day sailing with instructor Matt. Getting certified on J 24 sailboat. ✨✨✨✨✨

✨✨✨✨✨Eric Fredrickson says: Don’t have a bad word to say. Capt Matt and Co., while extremely busy, are flexible and great teachers. Even if you just want to take a leisurely sail, I highly recommend them. ✨✨✨✨✨

✨✨✨✨✨Andrew Gillett says: My wife and I did the ASA 101 class with Matt at Sail Dallas and we loved the personal instruction and the format. We liked their J24 sailboats and Lake Lewisville so much that we joined their membership program. After a couple years we bought our own trailer sailor and you know what? We don’t go out half as much. long story short we highly recommend both the membership program — you can’t beat the cost! — and especially the lessons.✨✨✨✨✨
