On this fun, accessible activity, you will get the chance to sail a specially designed boat through Valparaiso Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This activity will begin at the sailing center, where you will find a few disabled parking bays, as well as step-free access and changing facilities.

At the center, instructors will be available to assist you to transfer into the sailing boats. The boats are designed with many body types in mind and so are suitable for many levels of physical ability, including for quadriplegics. The boat design also makes it impossible for the boat to capsize, so you can sail without worrying about falling in the water.

The instructors will explain the simple joystick rudder and rigging that you will use to steer the boat, which are great for beginner sailors.

You will then set sail, either alone or in a tandem. You will navigate the boat yourself through Valparaiso Bay, admiring the stunning views and feeling the wind in your face as you glide over the waves. The activity will last for 2 hours, giving you plenty of time to take in the surroundings.
