Sunset is the most beautiful time of the day on Blue Mesa... Want to be part of the crew? Learn to raise the mainsail, unfurl the genoa, and trim the sails. Take the helm and sail to a pristine inlet, or just relax and enjoy the tranquility of skimming across the water. Anchor and watch the water turn shades of ochre, as the sun bends to meet the horizon. Enjoy glasses of featured red and white wines, accompanied by artisan breads, an assortment of cheeses, light meats, olives and local fruit. After the delectable food, hoist the sails and glide back to the marina in the fading twilight.
Cost: $399 for a private Sunset Sail (Bring up to 6 people)
Where: Elk Creek Marina, Blue Mesa
Bring: Light jacket/fleece, non-scuffing shoes (NO shoes with black or blue soles! We recommend crocs, tennis shoes with light colored soles, or go barefoot as the crew often does...), and your CAMERA!

“My wife and I went out for a Sunset Sail on Blue Mesa with Sail Western Colorado and it was magnificent. The sun was setting over the mesa, there was a stiff breeze and the wine and tapas were fabulous. The peace and beauty of travel under sail on a high mountain lake is amazing. I would recommend going sailing with Sail Western Colorado to anyone looking for a memorable experience.”

“I learned so much more about sailing in an evening cruise than I thought I would. Then we anchored in a solitary cove to eat great food and drink interesting wines. The sunset and fresh breeze on the return to the dock was glorious. I can’t wait to do it again!”

“My husband and I just went on a wonderful sunset sail with Sail Western Colorado. I had never been on a sailboat before, but Tim made us feel comfortable with just a few quick safety instructions. He really knows his way around a boat and is very knowledgeable about the Blue Mesa area. We learned a lot about sailing and the included dinner was so yummy. Thanks for an enjoyable evening!”

“What a great way to celebrate a birthday! The wine and cheese sail is an experience I’d highly recommend. The wine, cheeses, bread and olives were delicious! It was also a lot of fun being part of the crew and sailing the boat. Thanks!”
