Things To Know

  • Knowing how to swim is not mandatory.
  • Life jackets will be provided.
  • Sailing is completely dependent on weather conditions (wind speed, tide, etc.). There might be a wait time of 1 hour or more beyond your booking start time. Your return back to the shore might also get delayed by a few hours if the weather conditions are unfavourable. You must cooperate and patiently wait in such situations which are beyond control.
  • Bookings may be rescheduled or cancelled if the weather is unfavourable for sailing.
  • As the starting point for sailing is near Gateway of India, bookings may be cancelled last minute if there are restrictions by government authorities, police or defence authorities. In this case, you will get an option to either re-schedule your booking or get a full refund.
  • It is mandatory for each person to carry a govt. approved photo ID (original). You will be asked to show the same to security officials before sailing.


  • A very highly trained and experienced sailor will be on the boat with you. He will sail the boat for you and also guide you with the do's and dont's.
  • Lifejackets are available on the boat.

The experience was amazing

We had our booking on 27 Jan, 2018 for MacGregor 26 Yacht at 7am to 9am. The experience was amazing, as it was our first time on yacht. The view of Gateway of India and the Iconic Taj Hotel was amazing. Further, experiencing the sun rising from the sea was really great. The yacht was comfortable for 6 persons and accessing the roof from the yacht was easy.
Memories for lifetime !!!

Unmatchable experience!

The experience of being on your private yacht is unmatchable. The sea, the breeze ,the sunset just gets better when you are on such beautiful machine. Macgregor 26 was the one I sailed. 2hrs is enough of time to click (hell) lot of pictures and just sit and stare at the infinity (since they take you way away from the shore). The guide couldn’t be any better, a well informative person and very hospitable. This was my second outing with leisure kart (1st being the helicopter ride) and I have to thank them to make it hassle free(the booking process and followup) and so simple each time.

Worth every penny paid

I had planned a surprise party for my husband's birthday with our 4 other friends. It was an amazing experience and is worth every penny paid. I was lucky enough to have the services from Leisurekart India. Very professional in handling the first time customers and answering their queries patiently. The CR manager Afiya was very helpful and the captain was also a great guy. I will highly recommend it.

Superb experience

Superb experience. Starting with the booking experience till the end of the sail ride its just awesome. quick response from customer service team (Prasad). I went to celebrate the birthday of my wife and as per the instruction given, the yacht was decorated with balloons. well trained staff and a captain (Rahul) were very well behaved and composed.
1. The guys are fantastic with their sense of timing. No delays at all. This is highly impressive.
2. The condition of the McGregor yacht was impeccable.
3. The sailor assigned to us was a great guy and made our sailing experience even better.
Overall, the experience was superb and I would recommend everybody to try this.

The experience was superb

I took a 7:00 to 9:00 slot on a lazy Sunday morning. The booking was easy and I got a call almost immediately from a customer service guy who confirmed the booking and explained me the rules and regulations. I got a message on my registered number and e-mail almost immediately after the briefing from customer service. The two of us reached at the scheduled time and was received by the sailor himself. The guy Pradeep was a well behaved, calm and composed. I was impressed with following things:
1. The guys are fantastic with their sense of timing. No delays at all. This is highly impressive.
2. The condition of the McGregor yacht was impeccable.
3. The sailor assigned to us was a great guy and made our sailing experience even better.
Overall, the experience was superb and I would recommend everybody to try this.

Overall the ride was a great experience

The booking experience is flawless. It was a birthday gift and being the sea babies we loved it! Minor coordination glitches but the agency operating were very accommodating despite us showing up 10 minutes late at the jetty point. Wish they would serve beverages instead of just water, given the steep prices.
On the upside the boat was clean and we were left alone to have a great time. The captain was efficient and overall the ride was a great experience.

Great sailing experience

It was a great sailing experience. A gang of friends in the midst of the sea with the weather playing a perfect host what more could you ask for. To top it all the captain was friendly and ensured that our safety was his top priority.
Thanks Leisurekart for etching this experience in our memory.
