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!

I was staying just south of Clearwater for a week on holiday and fancied a morning sailing. I popped into the centre on a Sat morning and was soon on the water. I rented a Laser Radial ( other boats available). I had to take a quick multiple choice test (I was visiting from the UK) to show general competence... More

If you ever wanted to rent a sailboat, catamaran or wanted to learn to sail then this is your spot. Location is outstanding, a rare gem if you enjoy the sport of sailing.

This is a great local place to rent kayaks and paddle boards by the hour. The staff folks are friendly, prices are reasonable, and the water craft are in good shape. They do restrict the area in the harbor that you can take them, however. They also offer sailing classes, which are very popular based upon the number of boats... More

Enjoyed an afternoon on the water. Cost very reasonable. Staff friendly and helpful. Glad to know they test people first. Life jackets provided. Just what we wanted.

I rented a boat here in Feb. 2015. The office staff was unfriendly and not helpful. They seemed to be in a bad mood or maybe they don't like their jobs. The staff who prepared the boats were much better. I am giving 2 stars because of the poor attitude of the office staff. Otherwise this is a GREAT place... More

These guys really bummed me out today. I called them to get the low-down on their sailboat rental program because I really wanted to take my wife sailing on our honeymoon. I spoke with their Program Director Rich (Rick?); I'm an experienced sailor and everything seemed perfect. I told him I'd be there in an hour. We made the 45... More

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 price was reasonable and the boat was well equipped and in good condition. Our four... More

If you want an active vacation on Clearwater Beach, visit the Community Sailing Center just over the bridge on Sand Key. They offer a variety of activities from sailing school to kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding...a large fleet of boats for rent too. You need to become a member to rent or participate in the programs, but it's only $10/day.... More

The Center does afford travelers the opportunity to buy small gifts, hats,sunglasses, sunscreen, imbibements, etc. Bring cash though, no credit cards. If you need something small that one would normally purchase in a very small convenience store with limited offerings, this place will probably fit the bill.
