Although Howard was away on the day we sailed, our group of 11 seasoned hockey players had a magnificent sunset sail in freshening winds. The arrangements were made on relatively short notice (possible, perhaps, in the off-season) and Mark Abrahamson served admirably as our skipper in Howard's absence! We dropped sails for a fun and refreshing swim before witnessing the sun's return to its garage for the night. Definitely a fine way to spend an afternoon if you get the chance!

We made our sailing on 07/2020 with howard on the boat ''LIOR''.
first of all the telephone contact with the skipper howard was very clear and instructable, we received all the details about the conditions and the possibility of dates and hours. secondly, we felt immediatly that the skipper have experiences and concern about safety that was important for us.
we where 4 adults and 1 child 3 years old and we received a life jaket at the size of the child.
we had the oppurtunity to visit the boats before the trip on the marina herzliya.
tje sailling itself was really pleasant and with ideal conditions of weather and wind that gave us the possibility to navigate with the sail open.
unfotunatly two adults a the child suffered from motion sickness because of lack of anticipation from us (we should give them a medecine before to minimise that lije scopolamin patch or dramamin).
despite that the skipper howard give us all the patience and the attention and wa very kind with the sick peaple. we vomit everywhre but he did not let us take care of that and arrange everything by himself.
he insist about to complete the time of sailing that was expecting and we finished the travel in more calm water inside the marina.
he took care of us with also giving us to operate some cordage and navigation under his supervision.
we highly recommend this company and this skiper especially for ahos wanted to enjoy the sea.

On a recent visit to Herzliya we booked a 2 hour sunset cruise with Howard Clayman of Sailing Israel. We were six people including 2 young children. Wht a wonderful experience it was. He headed out of the marina right on time and once out in the Mediterranean enjoyed 90 minutes of sailing on windpower alone while watching a perfect sunset followed by spectacular views of the night lights of Tel Aviv and Herzliya. Howard was informative and interesting and was wonderful with the children. We toasted the sunset with a complimentary bottle of white wine provided. Highly recommended and we would book it again next time we spend time in Herzliya.

Howard was an exceptional skipper and provided us with a phenomenal sailing experience. The day of, he advised us hours before about what to expect on the cruise and the forecast and water and weather conditions. We were so excited we extended our time by an extra hour and Howard was extremely accommodating and flexible with us on all fronts. He was very friendly and and his instruction was easy to understand and fun. He was a wealth of knowledge, happily fielding our many seafaring questions. Overall, it was a fantastic, casual and enjoyable way to experience the Mediterranean. Highly recommend!!! Whether you are a first time sailor wanting to learn “the ropes” or just want to Have a relaxing beautiful sunset cruise, You’ll be in great hands with Howard! Can’t wait to book our next sail!

We went with Howard on a sailing adventure for a few hours. He was the ultimate professional, mixing teaching moments with his kind personality, to provide us and the kids with many teachable moments regarding sailing etc…..

We would recommend Howard to all groups and families.

Howard was very responsive and our Skipper, Shimon was very a very kind and able captain. They were able to accommodate us on short notice (2 days). The dock was easy enough to find. 20m from downtown Tel Aviv. The boat was very clean and in very good shape. Perfect day on the water! Thanks everyone.

We had a fantastic trip out with Howard. It was smooth sailing on a comfortable boat. Howard expertly handled the boat, giving me complete confidence to just sit back and enjoy. He also is an excellent conversationalist who is happy to share his knowledge and opinions about Israel and about sailing in the Mediterranean.

It was a great time -- I highly recommend taking this fun trip. It's well worth your money.

Spent an amazing afternoon with Skipper Howard Clayman off the Herzilya Marina at sea. Kids and us adults jumped into the ocean for a swim, before we set sail north. Howard was great company, letting the kids at the helm and teaching them about sailing. With a few of us finding our sea legs, he kept it jovial and fun. Thoroughly recommend a sail with Howard.

Thank you for the very positive review Kim! I'm glad to hear everyone enjoyed the sail. You've got some potential Sydney Harbor sailors there so hope you encourage them. Look forward to watching the start of the Hobart Race with you some Boxing Day. Many thanks again.

I am a Sailor from Arizona. I was looking for insights into the sailing community in Israel. I met Howard Clayman over the internet and had a call with him prior to arriving in Israel.
My wife and I had a great experience with Howard sailing out of the Hertzaliya Marina.
So much so, that I plan on sending my kids for lessons with him.
Highly recommended.
Howard is My "SAILING RABBI" in Israel!
