About Southern Ocean Sailing
Come sailing with us on the beautiful bays in Albany. We may even see some whales! Southern Ocean Sailing sets sail every day (subject to weather conditions) to destinations like Oyster and Princess Royal Harbours, the Islands of King George Sound and secluded beaches. Try your hand at hoisting the sails and steering our yacht or simply sit back and relax. Bring along some wine and nibbles if you wish. Oh and don't forget your Bathers. Small groups very welcome.

Had an amazing experience sailing with Mark and Jenny. I would 100% recommend to anyone down in the area. You can chill out or help steer the sail boat which was really cool. Mark and Jenny were so lovely and has some incredible sailing stories.
