The sunset sail was outstanding. The generosity and love of sailing displayed by Captain Greta adds a very special element to a peaceful and beautiful sail! Thank you!

This was a fabulous 45 minute sunset cruise. Best kept secret. Heard about it via word of mouth. Will definitely book again, hopefully during an Arboretum Cool Thursday music performance. Captain Greta was personable, knowledgeable.

On April 19, we have our Cool Thursday Sail, which cruises in the lake near the Dallas Arboretum. The sail departs at 7pm and returns approximately at 8:30pm.
