Day Sails - only £115 per person.

Ever wondered what it 's like to sail a traditional square rigged sailing ship? Well here is your chance...

Join the TS Pelican and enjoy a great sailing experience - "before the mast" on a square rigged tall ship from a bygone era (ages 12-80*). 

What is a Day Sail? Do I need any sailing experience?

It's a taster! Come aboard TS Pelican as a passenger and experience part of the beautiful Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site. 

Get involved in pulling lines, setting sail and steering the ship, all under the supervision of our expert crew. Alternatively, sit back, relax and enjoy the complete experience!

Day sails are for the whole family (12-16 year olds must be accompanied by an adult). 

A welcoming hot drink  on arrival, a hearty lunch, tea and cake in the afternoon, and refreshments throughout the day are included.

Back in port, there will also be an opportunity to explore the ship.





What can I expect from my sailing experience?

Please arrive between 0900 and 0930. You will be met by one of our team who will confirm your arrival on a crew list. There is a designated area for you to leave any bags, coats etc (at your own risk).

Following a welcome briefing, the Captain will outline his plans for the day. There will be a short safety briefing prior to departure at approximately 1000 hrs. 

Our itinerary and where we go depend on the weather on the day of the sail. Plans may need to change, for example, if the wind is against us. 

A Typical Day Sail Itinerary

Please arrive in plenty of time to register at the start of the day. The ship sails promptly and  boarding is not permitted once the gangway has been detached. 

A sample itinerary for your day may be as follows:

Where to Find Us

TS Pelican's home port is Weymouth, from where Adventure Under Sail operates the day sail experiences.

By Public Transport: Weymouth is very accessible by train and National Express routes from London. South West Trains runs a regular service each day from London Waterloo. Frequent coaches run to Weymouth via Bournemouth from London Victoria coach station. The ship is then a short walk from the station or coach stop, keeping the beach on your left hand side.
