Captain Eric is amazing. My group of 5 had a blast. His sail boat fits 6. Captain Eric is very knowledgeable about sailing, he has been in races throughout the U.S. so he knows his stuff. He taught our group terminology, showed us how things worked, let us help change the sails and even steer his boat. I wouldn't have... More

My husband and I chartered a sail with Outer Cape Sailing and Captain Gary out of Wellfleet. We did the 3 hour private sail through the harbor to a beautiful sand beach and it was the highlight of our trip to Cape Cod. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. We did the 11 am sail and had great weather with... More

Our "captain", Gary was such... More

It has taken me quite a while to write a review but we sailed with Outer Cape Sailing last year on the 4th of July which happens to be my birthday. Myself and my husband along with another couple fit perfectly on the boat (my friends husband is 6'7"). Sailing out to the beach is faster and a bit more... More

Jim was our Captain. We took a two hour lesson. My wife was nervous but Jim was patient and very instructive. We learned an amazing amount in two hours. We both got a chance to pilot and to crew. I had not handled a tiller since I was a kid and the experience brought back great memories. My wife was... More

Gary is a patient and thorough sailing instructor! My husband and I signed up for a weeks worth of small boat sailing instruction and had a wonderful time...now we are hooked! If you're interested in learning to sail, Gary is the guy for you and Wellfleet is the perfect location!
