Private Lessons 

Interested in sailing but looking for sailing instruction that is better tailored to you? We can do that!  Private lessons may be taught as a private (one-on-one) lesson or a semi-private lesson (up to four) students.  Green Bay Sail & Paddle, Inc. reserves the right to limit a semi-private lesson to two (2) students.  Several factors such as age and experience shall be taken into account when a semi-private lesson is scheduled.  We take pride in ensuring a safe and fun learning environment for each and every student.

For more information or to schedule your lesson today please email us at or call at 920-393-1983.

Each private lesson shall be a minimum of two (2) hours in length. The cost of private lessons will vary depending on if the private lesson is held when one of our other sessions is occurring.

Lessons During Regularly Scheduled Programming:
The cost shall be $50 an hour per boat with a maximum of two people on a boat (not including the instructor) and up to two boats per lesson.

$50.00 X 2 hour minimum = $100.00 per lesson for one boat ($200.00 per lesson for two boats)

Lessons Outside of Regularly Scheduled Programming:
The cost shall be $150.00 an hour for the first boat and $50.00 an hour per additional boat with a maximum of two boats per lesson. Each boat may have up to two (2) people per boat.

$150.00 X 2 hour minimum = $300.00 per lesson for one boat ($400.00 per lesson for two boats)
