RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Learn to Sail for a full day in Brisbane! You'll learn everything you need to know about sailing, and walk away with a great preparation for bareboat charter. This sailing day includes lunch and morning/ afternoon teas. Come aboard, we're expecting you!
Sailing is a pastime revered by many as one of the most glorious things you can do. These days you can hire a yacht just about anywhere. Now you'll have the skills and practice to take your yacht wherever you like! This hands-on course is so well-regarded it will count towards the RYA Competent Crew Course. You will learn to steer the yacht and work the sails as you sail the boat around beautiful Moreton Bay. The course teaches ropes, knots, how to work the sails and winches, steering, the use of the compass and the ins and outs of on-board safety. Students also gain some knowledge of charts and what the buoys and beacons mean. This 1-day course teaches you in a very practical manner - this isn't just some guy telling you what he knows, these are qualified trainers. Take this course for a skill that you'll enjoy all your life!
This experience is available most Saturdays and Sundays and goes from 9am-4pm.
If you're under 16 you'll need to bring a paying adult.
There will be a minimum of three and a maximum of 5 student sailors on board, so you'll get plenty of practice on all the apparatus.
All sailing trips are weather dependent. Please provide a mobile phone number so that the supplier may contact you on the day of your experience. If cruises are cancelled due to weather, the supplier will contact you ASAP to let you know. Cancelled experiences will be rescheduled for a later date.
Most importantly are the shoes - covered and white-soled so we don't damage the yacht! Wear a shirt with a collar for sun protection, and bring a change of clothes - just in case! A jumper is advised as are a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.
Instructors are all RYA/ YA qualified with Australian commercial qualifications. Your course will be held on board a commercially surveyed 40 yacht!
This sailing experience departs from the East Coast Marina at Manly, in Brisbane's East.
