I called to arrange something after going through all sailing places and seeing that this one had an option for sailing lessons that was less expensive than a 4hr private charter. When I explained that I had two kids (ages 13, 11), she suggested a 2hr excursion instead where we could be as involved or not involved as we wanted. Perfect! The nite before the set sail day the weather was still unsure, but she confirmed the sailing and said we'd see the next day. We arrived at the dock and the weather was drizzly but no better for the next day. She gave us the option of canceling but we said let's go! The weather was drizzly, then just overcast and the rain held out till the end. Captain Pamela explained boat safety and as soon as we were on the sailboat, she and her 1 crew member got all of us involved, with my daughter taking the helm immediately. The 4 of us all got to steer, learned boat terms, took in the scenery and had a tour too. We definitely felt this was a highlight of our trip, and 2hrs out on the lake was perfect - and the sun not beating down on us was prob a good thing too. Definitely recommend.
