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.

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.
Such a rush! I have never been sailing before, and I was a bit apprehensive, as I have gotten motion sickness in the past. Captain Doug and Rena made me feel so at ease, giving me some safety tips and offerening me fresh ginger in case I felt sea sick. And as soon as we set sail, I felt calm and at peace. Thankfully, no sea sickness! This was such a cool experience. Everyone should try it!
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.
