Booked an hour and half sailing experience with Chris for 3 of us. We all have been sailing many times before and enjoyed this trip immensely. Chris was a great host as well as a calm and patient instructor. This was especially important in the strong winds we had that day. The Evenstar was a excellent boat extremely well equipped, stable and easy to sail (looking to get one myself now). Incredibly enjoyable day highly recommended firm

My husband and I booked a half day (morning) sail with interest in getting some sailing lessions along with scenery of the coast. The weather was a bit rainy when we first went out, but the sun did come out and we got some really good sailing (and pictures) in!

Chris was great! He was friendly, entertaining and a great instructor.
We learned a lot of the basics of sailing as well as some history of the Causway Coast.

This was the highlight of our week-long trip!

We have many hours sailing experience but still picked up lots of tips from Chris,he has lots of experience and can teach a novice or experienced sailors alike.We sailed upto Ballintoy and around sheep Island and the views were amazing,so don't forget your camera.The price for the trip was well worth the money,and it was fun from start to finish.

Upon arrival Chris' guests are made to feel welcome and a part of the team straight away. I'm not a sailor or au fait with sailing jargon but with Chris I felt that I could manage. I was given just enough responsibility to feel that I was contributing but not enough to feel over whelmed. The relaxed atmosphere and delightful company made for an exhilirating afternoon. My partner and I will definitely be using this attraction again.

Causeway Coast Sailing has given me a unique experience. With no previous sailing skills I've went out several times now in various conditions and had a great time. This really gives you the feel for sailing and some great memories as well. I felt both safe in the hands of the very capable crew and also in the middle of an adventure which I wont forget. I'll definitely be back in the water with these folks and I'm looking forward to it.
