About Us

Sailing for Everyone

White Rock Lake is the gem of Dallas but the beauty and serenity of being on the water is an opportunity relatively few people can enjoy. The Spirit of Dallas makes this magical experience available for free to all citizens of Dallas. Everyone, no matter their social, economic or physical abilities, can board The Spirit of Dallas, a 38’ custom catamaran and  enjoy the tranquility as the wind quietly powers the sailboat across the lake.   

What we offer



Complimentary Sailing

Sailing is free for everyone. You must make a reservation. You can do so online. Email us if you need help or have something special in mind.

Can I bring a picnic aboard?

Guests are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy on their sail. Please remember that White Rock Lake Park rules prohibits alcohol and smoking in the park.

Do I need to bring a life vest?

The Spirit of Dallas has 80 life vests ranging from infant to adult sizes, and 2 throwable safety slings.  The Spirit of Dallas crew provides a short safety briefing at the beginning of each sail.

Will you cancel due to weather?

We want your time aboard The Spirit of Dallas to be enjoyable and comfortable. We do not sail in rain or when the wind is sustained 18+ knots or gusting regularly over 25+ knots.  We will contact you using the email and/or cell phone number provided in your reservation at least 1 hour prior to scheduled departure time, if we need to cancel the sail that you signed up for.  

Are pets allowed aboard?

The Spirit of Dallas does not allow pets aboard due to the limited space of the vessel and other passengers' comfort.

How To Get To Our Location

We recommend taking the DART train to White Rock Station, biking or walking the White Rock Lake trail to the park. If you drive, park in any of the parking lots along northeast shore of the lake and enjoy a stroll to the dock located across from Big Thicket on the northeast end of East  Lawther Drive. Please do not park in the grass; you will be ticketed and it causes erosion.
