Sail aboard the 55' schooner Capt Kidd on Galveston Bay. Departing from Seabrook Texas and the Seabrook Marina the ship sails past the Boardwalk in Kemah and out to open waters on Galveston Bay. Bring your own drinks and snacks on the scheduled 2 hour public sails and relax as the capt and crew do all the work for you. Listen to tropical music and imagine you're cruising in a sea of distant islands. Watch the beautiful sunsets on the water or enjoy the marine sights of a day sail. Don't forget the sunscreen! For sailing times and more info visit us online.

Aboard ship we don't have the convenience of an ice maker or ice dispenser like at home so we transport the ice in a plastic bag and use a cooler. If you'll let us know what exactly you're looking for in an ice provision when...More

A fun way to spend a few hours in the evening. BYOB and relax while sailing in the bay. It's great in June/July for seeing the Friday night fireworks.

After a few tense days of business the sunset cruise was quiet and calming and just what we needed. Captain joe and first mate Bill were professional and knowledgable. We saw dolphins and ships. The view of the boardwalk lights was spectacular.
