So, this just happened!! Max surprised Kaela by popping the question during a private sail with New Orleans Yacht Experience! We then popped open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate!
If you are looking for a truly unique and relaxing way to spend precious time with family and friends, or a romantic way to pop the question, a private sail with New Orleans Yacht Experience may be just the ticket. Come see what yacht life is all about on a private sail for you and up to 5 more of your favorite peeps! It’s just your intimate party and the crew for a fun-filled day or evening out on Lake Pontchartrain.
For 2 hours, you will be living the yacht life aboard a luxurious 47 foot Beneteau sailboat, fondly named “Roux Stir” for our love of a good ole New Orleans style gumbo! Onboard, you will be treated like royalty! Drinks flowing, and laughter filling the air!
We are husband and wife team, Doug and Rena White, and local New Orleanians through-and-through!
Captain Doug is a US Coast Guard certified captain with over 40 years of sailing experience. His love of sailing shines and your safety is his top priority. He’ll even let you get behind the big wheel and take the Roux Stir for a spin! Rena will make sure you have everything you need with a dash of southern hospitality!
We want to make your time with us truly special. You’ll be more like family when you step onboard the Roux Stir. We can customize your private sail to meet your every need. Whether you are hosting a team-building adventure with colleagues, or celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or anything in between, we would love to help you plan your next WOW New Orleans Yacht sailing experience! Private sails are open for 1 to 6 passengers.
Captain Doug and his lovely wife Rena greeted my family and I aboard with grace and enthusiasm. Tasty snacks and drinks were offered immediately, setting the tone for what was to become an unforgettable first time experience for my whole family, which included our precocious 4 year old, his 70 year old Grandma, and my husband. Needless to say, our experience on their yacht was a relaxing ride for the whole family. The yacht itself is a beautiful piece of work; my husband noting the fine details found within. There were others onboard but it did not feel cramped at all, with plenty of space and seating to enjoy the Lake views. Our hosts were engaging and looked after our needs in the short time we spent aboard. Thank you Captain Doug and Ms. Rena for sharing your yacht with my family! I’d take a ride on the yacht again in a heartbeat.
We took a chance on something new in NOLA, and it was well worth the gamble. Such a beautiful, peaceful evening – and we were treated like royalty! It was just what we needed to de-stress and re-focus on us. We are planning our next trip within the next month…might even become a “habit”…sailing was smooth, snacks were fabulous, and the company was awesome.
What a great experience. My wife and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary in New Orleans and this sunset sail was the cherry on top. Doug was a great captain. If you’re looking for something unique to do while visiting NOLA this should be on your list.
