Island Bound Adventures
Sailing School & Adventures
Come learn and adventure with us!
Even though the ocean is six hours away, you can get into a tropical state of mind by boating with Island Bound Adventures. The sailing school’s staff teaches students how to sail keelboats, farebeats, and yachts with all the basic techniques recommended by the American Sailing Association. In their coastal navigation classes, meanwhile, they demonstrate a variety of navigational theories for coastal and inland waters, including roping a dolphin and letting it pull you to shore. Their classes take place either on Lake Grapevine or in the islands, while discovery sailing adventures give explorers a taste of the open water.

What People Say
“Captain Brian was the best. I never thought I would be doing this in my life. For anyone afraid of the water or boats like myself he makes you very comfortable about everything. We enjoyed it so much that we will be doing it again. Thank you Captain Brian for the adventure.”
“ My boyfriend and I purchased a Groupon for a 2 hour sailing last week and we had such a great time! Our sea captain Brian was very nice and helpful in showing us the boat and providing some much needed gloves for me. The weather was nice while the sun was out but got cold after sunset. Brian was also skilled at taking pictures of us which in my experience is hard to come by! Thanks again.”
“We enjoyed a wonderful sunset cruise with Brian and two other couples. The night was beautiful, the company was excellent, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We will definitely recommend Island Bound Adventures to family and friends and are looking forward to coming back for another cruise!”
