If you have children that can sail by themselves this is a great place for them. Lots of different boats to choose from. Their rates are very inexpensive. We will definitely be going back.

Wow, what a find! Love this place. The people and customer service were tops. We did kayaks, stand up paddle boards, 15 foot single hull daysailer and 16 foot Hobie cat on our 2 day pass. I highly recommend Clearwater Community Sailing Center!

The staff are very knowledgable and safety conscious. You can sail around the little bay and haul ashore at three different sandbar islands for shelling and swimming. Lots of fun if you have sailing experience as these are not guided sailing tours. I thought the...More
