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! !
I took my boyfriend and his friends out for his birthday and it was a blast!!!! best birthday present ever he said!!! Captain Matt is awesome he makes it your "own" private charter not one of those lame planned trips where you are limited to what they want. We will be back for sure again and again such and enjoyable experience. Well worth the money!!!!
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!!
Matt made our trip so incredibly memorable! The boat is incredibly nice, the trip was so relaxing and exactly what I had hoped for!
We had an amazing time with Captain Matt, the boat ride was absolutely incredible! There is nothing that we would have changed about the day, except to make it last longer. The boat was beautiful and spacious, the day was perfect and Matt was happy to stop for swim breaks whenever we requested. We were fortunate to see dolphins and we will absolutely be back, time and time again!
We were celebrating a 30th birthday, but I would recommend Sailaway Clear Lake Charters for any type of outing (fits 12).
Thank you Matt for an absolutely amazing day!
Captain Matt took us out on the Sailaway Cat for an amazing day of sailing, swimming, and sightseeing. We saw and swam with the dolphins! Capt. Matt was great about making sure we spent as much time with the dolphins as possible! We even trekked out to Redfish Island for another refreshing swim in the cove. The boat was beautiful with plenty of room to eat, drink, sunbathe, or relax in the shade. This is a must do!! It is perfect for families, friends, or small corporate events!!! I cannot wait to go and play on the Sailaway Cat again!!! FABUOLOUS adventure!!!!
Fun time swimming, sailing and knows where to find the dolphins. The boat was very nice and super clean.
Went on the Friday night sunset/fireworks cruise and it was amazing. This was a public cruise, when we got to the meeting spot there were two other couples also going on the trip ( can be up to 12 people). Captain Matt meets you at the spot and you follow him into the marina. From there we boarded the catamaran, I had never been on one but it was spacious and comfortable. captain Matt and his asst Michelle were great at making everyone feel at home, chatting with those that wanted to but also leaving people to enjoy themselves if they wanted to just sit. Michelle took as many picture as you wanted and had great recommendations for restaurants in the area for the rest of our trip. The whole experience was relaxing in a romantic, peaceful setting. I plan on booking with sail away every time I'm in the Houston area!
I have held several "Marketing Lunches" on this boat.
It was perfect for this. Excellent time.. Safe Captain and a great experience.
I would recommend this charter for any of your needs. They are willing to accommodate the charter to fit your needs and wants.
Great service Great sailing and lots of fun.
The dolphin show we saw was a huge bonus. Not every time but several times.
Enjoy your time on Sailaway Clear lake Charters. I know once you try it you wont be sorry!
(maybe I can add my photos at a latter time? not sure if this site will let me do that but if it does I will add)
I have actually had the opportunity on going out several times on this great boat with Matt. He is an awesome captain and the boat is beyond beautiful. Experience this yourself, you will not regret it.
Captain Matt led our group on a four hour sailing outing. He made the trip feel safe, easy and very fun. The coordination during the lead up to the trip was also very easy. We will definitely be back.
We had a fantastic time sailing out on the catamaran for sunset on Saturday. There were 12 of us and we came prepared with food, drink, and music. Captain Matt was laidback, helpful, friendly, and also tolerant of our perhaps dubious taste in sailing music (ex: Call Me Maybe). We went swimming and then watched the sunset out in Galveston Bay from the comfort of our stylish sailing vessel. It was a great reminder of how beautiful our surroundings can be (something one can easily forget living in Houston). We all had a great time and definitely plan on doing this again. Thanks Capt. Matt!
Booked this trip with the expectation of a nice sunny day, great winds and family and friends having an amazing time, and the expectations were beyond. Captain Matt was so much fun and the boat is beautiful and very spacey! My family and friends had a great time and we are already looking at dates to book this trip again! My childrend who are 6 and 14 had a great time!! Our friends children who range from age 18-6 also had a blast!! Thank you Captain Matt for being so accommodating!! Looking forward to our next trip!!
We had such a great trip and this was such an amazing way to spend our July 4th on the water! Captain Matt was so friendly and easy going. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves while he handled everything! This was my first time on one of these, and the boat well exceeded my expectations! Thanks for a GREAT day!
We sailed the sunset cruise on Friday and watched the fireworks from the boat that evening. We had 2 families with children from 4 to 13. Half way through the cruise, all the kids could talk about was making this an annual event and when can we come back again! Fantastic time, wonderful boat and a great person in Captain Matt! He certainly knows how to make this YOUR cruise and provide a great experience for everyone. Fantastic for families! We have no doubt found a new Family tradition.
This was our second time to sail with captain Matt!! First was a sunset cruise last year and then we did the 9:00am last week. Aaaaaaaaaamazing time!!! This is a perfect way to relax and enjoy friends and family!! Capt. Matt is professional and knows his stuff but also makes the trip fun and enjoyable for everyone!! This trip was extra special bc my boyfriend proposed!!! I'll never forgot our trip!! And we can't wait to come back next year!!
We took our family out for the day with Captain Matt and had such a relaxing, fun day! The boat is very nice & clean and Matt made us all feel very welcome! I would definitely recommend this sailing excursion for all ages! It was a wonderful Day!!
Decided to do something different - looked at some of the charter options available in the area. This one had the best price, and all the reviews seemed very positive.
And, I am glad we went. The Captain was very helpful and entertaining. It turned out that only my son, my wife and myself were booked. But, he still took us out despite it not being a full load. I've been on boats hundreds of times, but never on a sailboat. It was very peaceful. And, because of his split hull design, the boat isn't tossed about in the waves as much as other sailboats would be on a windy day.
I would certainly recommend this service to someone considering a charter. And, I would go again.
His website is very helpful as well - one can book the whole thing online automatically.
And, I also enjoyed having someone to talk hockey too. Not many hockey fans down here in Texas!
I decided to skip work for the afternoon this week and take advantage of the beautiful day. Captain Matt made us all feel comfortable and welcome onboard his sailboat. He does all the work so it was effortless and simple. We could tell he had a lot of experience sailing and had great knowledge of the area. His stories were entertaining and he had plenty of music choices for us. I will be signing up to do this again for a ladies birthday party or a couples sunset happy hour.
