Which destinations and adventures will you choose?

Step 2: Extend an invitation 

Boat tours on Flathead Lake can accommodate the whole family, just you and your special someone, or can even be the perfect solo trip. The sailing charters available through Go Sail Flathead Lake are available for between one to five guests, ages 5 and up. Who will you bring along on the adventure?

On the right hand side of the “Charters” webpage, choose your preferred date and then select from available tour options. If there is another type of sailboat tour on Flathead Lake that you would like to book but don’t see an available option, contact us with your dream plan and we’ll see if we can make it happen! 

Step 4: Meet your captain 

Your Flathead Lake boat tour is made possible by one of the amazing captains at Go Sail Flathead Lake. And we can’t wait for you to meet them! Before you set sail, you’ll check in at the sailing shop and meet your captain. Feel free to ask questions before and during your sail — our captains are passionate about their trade!

Step 5: Set sail
