Windward SeaVenture

15+ sailboats available for charter.

Chartering your own boat is the perfect way to experience a peaceful and luxurious day at sea. Enjoy all of the scenery the ocean has to offer in a serene setting surrounded only by you and your guests.

This option is available even to those with no sailing experience. You can still enjoy your ocean venture by going out with one of our experienced captains. Every charter boat captain we partner with is certified by the coast guard and fully licensed. A seasoned captain is available to keep you and your guests safe, starting at  only $30 per hour.

If you already have sailing experience, you may choose to take a bareboat charter and captain it yourself. All we ask is that you bring a logbook or other record of your sailing experience if you’ve never chartered through Windward SeaVenture before. A quick test sail may be required, but once you pass, we will keep your information on file for all future sailing charters.

We have 14 sailboats available for clients prepared to experience a day at sea, and please follow this short list of rules:

  • All charterers will be required to sign a charter contract prior to departure from the dock
  • Feel free to bring any food or drinks you wish to have with you on the boat.  We do ask that you avoid bringing glass bottles.
  • Please bring your food & drinks in soft bottom coolers or bring plenty of extra towels to set your cooler on to prevent your cooler from scratching up the floor of the boat.
  • Wear non-black soled shoes to prevent leaving shoe marks
  • Arrive 15 minutes early to take care of your payment & paperwork

We have a wide selection of boats available for charter, and one of them is sure to be perfect for your needs! Shop our selection to see which of our offerings calls to you the most. We have you covered whether you’re looking for a small boat or one with room for ten or more guests. Most of our charters are for one of the following lengths:

  • an eight hour day
  • a four-hour stint with a captain
  • an entire week

We even have one simple boat you can rent hourly! All prices vary depending on the boat’s size and features offered. If you have any questions about which option is right for you, call us at 281-467-2279.

Galveston's Most Popular Experiences

Here are some of the best things to do on your Galveston boat rental. Inshore Fishing Trips Start sailing throughout Galveston bay or West bay until you find a suitable spot. Anchor down and begin a day of fun as you catch some bull redfish, speckled trout, or flounder. At the end of your trip go for a joy ride in a nearby lake and celebrate the day's catch with some drinks. Offshore Fishing Trips With the help of one of our captains, begin your deep sea fishing trip by sailing out of the marina and towards the Gulf of Mexico. The gulf is a perfect location for anglers wanting to catch a big fish. Once you're in deep enough waters you could catch a kingfish, a red snapper, or even a shark! Parasailing and Kayaking When you try some parasailing, you'll be launched up to 500 feet in the air. This is an incredible adrenaline rush, and the ocean views from up high can be terrific. For kayaking, visit Jamaica Beach, where you'll soon discover the best places for you to paddle.
