We recently spent two lovely afternoons sailing the Wellfleet harbor with Eric fron Outer Cape Sailing. why two afternoons? well because the first day out, there wasn't enough wind to keep the sails full. so Eric motored us about the harbor which was a beautiful way to see the harbor. A few days later we caught another ride with Eric,... More

Took the Day Sail and Beach Excursion. Relaxing, informative, allowed to help out steering, if you like...Did not feel rushed. Docked at Jeremy Point...swam in crystal clear water... seals in view, but not too close...just what we needed...price worth every penny for the length and quality of the trip. Captain Eric, we wish you all the best!

very beautiful swim on the tip of Jeremy Point after a nice one hour cruise from Welflleet. Don't miss it! If there is wind you will get the thrill of sailing, if there is not, you will have a motored conversation with the skipper while looking forward the swim.

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

This was a fantastic first-time sailing experience for me -- and the rest of my family was just as enthusiastic. Didn't hurt that it was a 10-on-a-10-scale day, weather-wise, and there was just enough chop on the water to make it fun, but not so rough that you had to hang on for dear life. 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!
