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!

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.
This was the most relaxing and memorable birthday experience that my hubby arranged for my birthday with the New Orleans Yacht Experience team.
Captain Doug is so down to earth and knowledgeable about the history of the Lake and the area. He picked us up from the designated area and drove us to the Lakefront docking area. He was talking to us and making us feel welcome already before we got to their beautiful Roux Stir. His sailing skills and style is so relaxing and amazing. Rena! Rena! What a beautiful amazing lady who took care of us on board serving us drinks, snacks and of course her homemade delicious ginger cookies and caprese skewers were awesome. Captain Doug and Rena were so prepared for us and made me feel so special on my birthday. It was a very relaxing one of a kind sailing experience. The boat is so beautiful, well kept and very clean and the whole arrangement was spectacular including their music selection. We will go back again to unwind and relax from time to time and we will highly recommend their service to our Nola peeps and out of town guests. Thank you for the wonderful experience and outstanding service. Looking forward already for the next round.
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.
If we could give them more stars, we would. Every aspect of the sail was top notch. Service was awesome, Captain Doug and Rena are great hosts and cruising the lake is a beautiful way to see New Orleans. Just a fantastic experience.
