That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Experience the basics of sailing and enjoy the feeling of being at the helm of a Catalina yacht. Enjoy a cruise out of the Docklands and then set the sails and practice your manoeuvres in the bay under the guidance of an experienced crew.
Your day begins as you board the Catalina yacht with your small group and experienced crew. You'll enjoy a relaxed cruise out of the Melbourne Docklands, then it's onto Port Phillip Bay to hoist the sails and practice your sailing manoeuvres under the watchful eyes of your skipper. You'll practice tasks such as winching, mainsail and tacking, while taking in the beautiful surrounds. With the wind in your hair and the fresh sea breeze on your skin, you'll feel relaxed and energised. Once your sailing session has ended you'll enjoy complimentary snacks on the cruise back to the Docklands. A great day out for someone who has a keen interest in sailing but doesn't know where to start.
