Sailing is now easy in The Big Easy.
When visiting New Orleans you don’t always think about sailing. You might consider a swamp tours or maybe a Haunted History tour. However, in New Orleans we sail year round in the protected waters of Lake Pontchartrain. Come aboard our 47′ luxurious Beneteau sailboat “Roux Stir” for a 2hr Day Sail or a 2hr Sunset Sail. If you want something even more spectacular, choose a Private Sail and get the entire boat to yourselves. A private sail consists of just your party (up to 6 people) and the crew. Captain Doug will ensure your safety and make your ride as smooth as possible. Cruise Director Rena will make sure you are comfortable and keep that wine glass full.

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.
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.
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.
