Galveston Sailing - Charter Boats for Great Experiences with Sailo

Home to some of the best offshore sailing and fishing spots in the Gulf of Mexico

As an island city on the Gulf Coast of Texas, Galveston is home to some of the best offshore sailing and fishing spots in the United States. Stewart Beach and East Beach are on Galveston's eastern end, giving locals and visitors alike the opportunity to experience their own Margaritaville without blowing out a flip flop.

It's no secret that Galveston has a lot of offer as an island city. Whether you're looking to go on your next fishing adventure in the Gulf or you're ready to relax and unwind on the water, Sailo offers an amazing choice for you to charter one of our boats for a memorable experience with family or friends. 

When you're ready to hit the water in Galveston on one of Sailo’s charter boats, whether to take an afternoon bay and jetty trip or to relax on a party boat, here are some key spots for you to explore.

If you're looking to take in the sights while you're out on the water, Pier 21 is where to go. Pier 21 is the historic working harbor. While you're on a Galveston sailing trip along the area, you'll see cruise ships and hard-working shrimp boats. You might spot a dolphin, too, and other local marine wildlife, which are frequent visitors of Pier 21. When you're done soaking up the sun while you're out on the water, you can treat yourself to some of the great restaurants and museums the pier has to offer in this historic seaport.

Sailing from the marina on Jamaica Beach

galveston-sailing-jamaica-beach-sailo-charter-boats

Jamaica Beach is another one of Galveston's historic premier communities. Located on the West end of the island, Jamaica Beach offers sailors a gorgeous view of the canal and sunrise. The marina is best for casual sailors rather than those with a need for speed as the area has a speed limit of 10 mph out on the water. Jamaica Beach gets sailors some space away from the more-crowded Seawall, but still keeps you close to the island attractions when you're ready to tie up your boat for the day.

Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico

One of the best parts about Galveston is that it's right by the Gulf of Mexico. For sailors who love to fish, this is the prime spot to go boating for the day. Within just 30 miles offshore, Captain Shane will be your best fishing guide if you ‘re looking to catch a kingfish, tuna, snapper, and even shark. Just be sure to release the sharks you catch after you take your photo-op to keep the waters good, healthy and ready for your next Galveston sailing adventure.

Galveston Bay - Family Trip

Galveston Bay is good for an old-fashioned cruise along the water. Unlike Trinity Bay where sailors need to be on the lookout for big cruise liners and harsher waves, this area offers calmer waters. Sandy bottom sites and local beaches along also make the area a great spot for a Galveston sailing trip for the family. If you're interested in fishing while you're out on the water, you can find yourself catching flounder, speckled trout, reddish, and more.

Seawall Boulevard - Sailing Cruise

galveston-sailing-seawall-sailo-charter-boats

Galveston's seawall, built after the Great Storm of 1900, is 17 feet high and over 10 miles long. Not only is the Seawall Galveston's longest continuing sidewalk for runners, cyclists, and skaters but it's also the world's longest mural. Seawall Boulevard offers boaters the chance to sail along 32 miles of beaches that stretch from relaxing fishing piers to the more vibrant Port Arkansas.
