Great sail and fun time in Kemah.

by Sailaway Charters on 07/10/19

Five Star experience. Boat is beautiful and clean. Capt. Matt is very accommodating and is interested in a good experience for all. 
Something fun to do if you are in the Kemah area. If I lived closer it would be something I would do often!

Highly recommend this charter!

Fun Sail!!

by Sailaway Charters on 07/10/19

This is a great charter sail for families or couples. The way this cat is built there is a very comfortable seating area with tons of shade and a table, but it still gets a nice breeze when moving. You can also get in the trampoline out front and be in the sun over the water. This is our second charter w Matt and is a great way to entertain guests from out of town for a unique Houston area experience!! Definitely try this cruise!!!! Thank you captain Matt, we had a blast!!!

Words can't describe!! Excellent!!!

We went yesterday for our friend Michelle's birthday. All I can say is WOW!!! This was an amazing day. Captain Matt is beyond awesome. He was so attentive, kind, friendly, courteous and made the afternoon so incredibly relaxing. If you have not ever sailed with him. YOU SHOULD!!!! I can't wait to go back!

Captain Matt is amazing! We will definitely sail with him again!

We sailed with Captain Matt on his beautiful Catamaran Sail Boat and had a wonderful day. The boat was beautiful and it was clean and well stocked for any situation. Captain Matt was an extremely gracious host. On the trip Captain Matt was willing to do anything to make our trip what we wanted it to be. If you are looking for a day of sailing, look no more! Captain Matt and Sailaway Charters is the one to use!!! Thank you Captain Matt for a wonderful day of sailing!!

Amazing sailing trip in Kemah...

by Sailaway Charters on 07/10/19

My husband booked a sunset cruise in May, 2016, with Captain Matt as part of our anniversary trip. We had the boat to ourselves, even though we had booked a public cruise. Captain Matt was very safety conscious and was a wonderful host. He let us look around the boat and choose the seats we wanted. He provided music but also let us sail in quiet, just so we could hear the ocean. As we neared land, we sailed by some of the huge homes on the shore. Captain Matt was a superb host and made us feel at home. We would definitely recommend a trip with Captain Matt on Sail Away Cat.

This is who you book for sailing charter,if you want the best.

by Sailaway Charters on 07/10/19

I have been using Sailaway Cat for years. We've booked it for family and for friends. Every time Captain Matt is the BEST! You will not find a more personable charter cruise, nor a better boat. The catamaran has everything you need on it, and it's smoother than a normal boat. (Much smoother ride, helps for those that are prone to sea sickness) When you book a charter, one expects great customer service and a great time. You get all of that and more with Captain Matt. We'll be booking again soon, and this will be our 3rd year in a row, and our 4th time riding out with him. There is NO ONE better out there.

Best decision we made...

by Sailaway Charters on 07/10/19

Searching for ideas to do for my husband and Friends birthday and I came across Sailaway Clearlake charters and decided to give it a try. Captain Matt was very fast to respond to my inquiry when contacting him. Our trip out was the best ever. His boat is beautiful clean and a lot of fun. He also has an awesome sound system on his boat so we were just able to use our phones to Bluetooth our music through. I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to use his services, he was very professional, nice and a lot of fun. Before we got off the boat our group was trying to figure out another time we could get together so we can go sailing with Captain Matt again.


Perfect way to celebrate our anniversary

by Sailaway Charters on 07/10/19

We really enjoyed our day cruise. Captain Matt played great music and gave us an awesome boat tour of the area.

Great Sunset Cruise....

by Sailaway Charters on 02/18/16

I purchased a private sunset cruise for my husband for our anniversary. We both LOVED it and Matt was great to work with. We had to reschedule a couple of times due to weather, and Matt was very accommodating. His catamaran was gorgeous, and he really makes sure you have a great time! I highly recommend!



Best sailing experience on Catamaran ,Kemah

“A new Experience ”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days ago NEWvia mobile

Sunday January 2016 I was invited to go on a catamaran and I have never been on a catamaran before Sunday. I was a little nervous But the owner Matt Ceviker and the two ladies I was with were so reassuring and they were right (-: I think I have found my new love sailing on a catamaran at sailaway Clear lake. It was worth every penny and I will do it again very soon. I most certainly highly recommend this experience sailaway Clearlake with Matt Ceviker. Thanks Matt for a new Experience on such a beautiful day.

“Amazing Sunset Cruise”
5 of 5 starsReviewed October 14, 2015

My sister-in-law and I were taking a long weekend trip to Houston to visit my daughter. I wanted to experience sailing and be on the water for a sunset. We took along some friends and other family members for a total of 10 passengers. There was plenty of room, Captain Matt was amazing, the sunset was gorgeous and our group had a great time. We will ABSOLUTELY choose Sailaway Clear Lake Charters again. Our next sailing adventure cannot come too soon!!

“Amazing Day for Sailing! Matt was excellent!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed October 4, 2015

If you are coming to the coast, you have to go sailing with Matt. His boat is wonderfully comfortable and accommodating! It was the best relaxation I had in a while and met great new friends as well. The Dolphin watching was phenomenal too! I highly recommend Matt's trip!

“Best, most relaxing thing we did in Kemah!!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed September 8, 2015

We highly recommend going out with Captain Matt on this quaint sea adventure. This was such a laid back and relaxing time. Be sure to take your favorite beverages - there's plenty of room for storing a small cooler and a small bag (if you wanted to take snacks or your swim suit). There's room to sunbathe or just sit and relax with a nice glass of wine. One of the most enjoyable "tours" ever! I'd love to do a private party with this company someday ...

I knocked off one wonderful sailing and dolphin watching excursion off of my bucket list. This beautiful catamaran is worth experiencing. I have recently visited Destin and Pensacola Beach and spent many hours looking for Dolphins. Little did I know they are right here in Clear Lake! Make SailawayCat one trip to remember! !

My husband and I took a charter with Captain Matt, and it was the most relaxing and enjoyable experience of our vacation to Galveston. The boat sailed out at Kemah Bay. We went on a three hour cruise for sunset. Captain Matt was an excellent host and provided very enjoyable and relaxing music for our trip. The sunset was beautiful and there was a gentle breeze for the trip. We loved our time on Sailaway Cat and plan to book again with Captain Matt in the future!!
