“Sunday ->Funday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This was our second charter with Capt. Matt. He is an amazing host and an awesome boat. My family is not one for getting out of their comfort zone, yet within the first 15 minutes of our trip, my grandma and mother had their shoes off and were relaxing comfortably in the nets at the front of the boat.

I strongly suggest this charter for anyone with a 4+ plus gap in their day. I will be chartering with Matt again sometime this summer, hopefully 2 more times.

Thanks Matt for the great trip!

“Beautiful catamaran sailing in Galveston Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

My wife and I scheduled a 3 hour morning cruise with Captain Matt on a Thursday and were pleasantly surprised that the charter went on as scheduled since only three people showed up. Captain Matt was a great host and really went out of his way to make sure we had an enjoyable time. It was a wonderful day on the Bay with plenty of sunshine and the right amount of wind which made for a great sailing experience. The beverages were cold and good with quite a selection to choose from and the music Captain Matt played via his phone was both relaxing and fit the sailing theme. Captain Matt was quite the coversationalist and had many stories to share with us, which kept us laughing all the while. Afterwards, my wife and I laid out on the front of the Cat relaxing and listening to music while not paying attention to the time when Captain Matt asked if we had any plans to be anywhere. As it turns out, our cruise had run over by about 40 minutes or so and Captain Matt gave us the option of motoring to get us back sooner or just leisurely sailing back; of course we opted for the second choice. All total, this amounted to an additional hour out on the water. We are very thankful for the sailing experience we had with Captain Matt and look forward to doing it again...perhaps we will do the Sunset tour next time...I highly recommend Sailaway Clear Lake charters and Captain Matt for all your charter sailing needs.

“First sailing experience...Captain Matt & his Catamaran is the way to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

My hub & I wanted a relaxing, educational & just plain fun experience sailing in Clearlake/Galveston Bay. The hub had been on a regular small sailboat before, but neither of us had been on a catamaran. It is so smooth yet exciting...the boat is clean & so comfortable. Best of all is the professional & personableness of Captain Matt. We enjoyed his company & conversation, also his selection of music. He even extended our cruise for longer than we planned! We couldn't have asked for better & will be back!

“Great family Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Last Saturday my family went out with Captain Matt.
He was ready for us and the perfect captain.
Some of the family wanted instruction on how to sail, and
Matt was great.
We all had a great experience and would definitely rent from
him again.

“Outstanding experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Matt is as equally a wonderful host as he is a Captain. We took a sunset charter, brought a picnic (we forgot paper plates but Matt had a stash) and enjoyed a three hour sailing cruise. The boat is clean, safe and can comfortably accommodate a group of people. He has a great music system as well. Looking for a relaxing time on the water with a great Captain and boat? Call Matt.
