Recently purchased half a day sail voucher, great value! We experienced a beautiful evening sail in July. Captain Chris is great, he is full of experience and useful information and very helpful when being taught how to sail, or happy to let you sit back and relax. For an added bonus we got to witness wildlife such as seals and... More

Super trip with a very nice boat and a great skipper to a very pure and beautiful Island where time stood still! We recommend everyone to do this trip with Chris and see some dolphines, seals and do some fishing in the mean time!

A thoroughly enjoyable day's, sailing many thanks to skipper Chris. An ideal tonic to relax after the working week made all the more interesting with the challenging winds and tide in Ballycastle Bay. As a first time experience of sailing I couldn't recommend it enough.

I have just finished a 4 week sailing course under the expert guidance of Chris. Each week built upon the last and Chris is a very practical, hands on instructor, as in the best way to learn is to get stuck in and learn from doing it. He was very calm at all times and builds your confidence as he... More

Just finished the final day of a set of sailing lessons with Causeway Coast Sailing. Chris is a fantastic instructor and skipper. He is calm and knowledgeable. Each one of our 4 trips brought varying wind, weather and tidal conditions. Chris taught us basic techniques, each week building on what we had learned on the last. His great attitude and... More

Captain Chris was fantastic. He was a wealth of information about anything we wondered. He taught us basic sailing and made the trip very fun. It was a great day on the water. The scenery was awesome.

One of the best highlights of our trip to Ireland was with Stephen Brown of City and Causeway Tours. He picked up a group of six of us at the port in Belfast Ireland for an exciting all day excursion of the Antrim Coast which included: Giants Causeway, Antrim Coast, Bushmills Distillery, Dunluce Castle, and Carrick Rope Bridge plus an...

My girlfriend and I had a great morning sail with Chris on his 30ft sail boat. Neither of us had much previous experience sailing. Chris was a great teacher and has a wealth of sailing knowledge as well as local knowledge. We sailed from Ballycastle to Rathlin Island and back. It was a fantastic way to view the wonderful scenery... More
