We were booked to sail a private charter with another company. That company did not show up to our reservation. I was left with a crying seven year old that was heartbroken he wasn't going to get to sail on our vacation. I called south coast sailing at 1pm and asked if there was anyway we could sail today.

My wife and I signed up for the ASA101 course and we had Capt. Rick and Capt. Terry as our instructors. Both of them were extremely knowledgeable and made the experience great. Very laid back but professionally done, I would highly recommend SCS to anyone who wants to learn more about sailing. One hint however. Sign up early and get... More

While my friend was the one who made all the rental arrangements, the process was very smooth and the sailboat was in good condition. South Coast Sailing Adventures stayed open an additional hour (normally requires boats to be returned at 5:00pm to accommodate our return. Overall, the operation is run very professionally.

My girlfriend and I have taken a combined 12 courses with South Coast and are on our way this afternoon for our last 2 this weekend. We were recommended them by a very reputable local broker last year and have been thankful ever since. Not only did we learn a tremendous amount but we also felt a lot of personal... More

Nothing short of exceptional! I wanted to plan a surprise sunset sail, but the weather had been less than cooperative. At the last minute, the weather cleared up and I called the same day in the morning to see if arrangements could be made for later that afternoon. Capt. Lucy made all the arrangements. She was extremely personable and accommodating!... More

I have always dreamed of sailing in exotic locations around the world. I have been on the ocean for years in the USN and privately on power boats. We found SCS this spring and told the owner Cptn. Lucy of our sailing goals. She has been very down to Earth and personable. She runs a sailing school that takes a... More

I don't do reviews often but every once in long while i just have to acknowledge a firm and particularly a staff member when they just deliver a level of excellence that makes you feel really smart about spending your hard earned cash. I love sailing and want my kids to have a shot to experience the freedom you get... More

My buddy and I took the ASA 101 class and it was a blast. Our captain/instructor (Rick) was great. This was a neat way to spend a couple of days out of town and on the water. Being landlubbers from the west/northwest side of Houston we choose to spend the night on one of their boats. This was the best... More

South Coast Sailing Adventures is located in a wonderful spot, the Kemah boardwalk, with plenty to things to do within walking distance. If you have your family, you can take the course and they can go play on the boardwalk. Don’t forget to get a free coupon from the office staff, for a free appetizer, before you go to the... More
