Your Goal Is To Cruise Together...Why Wouldn't You Begin Your Training OCEAN SAILING?

Monohull or Catamaran For Advanced Courses...You Choose!

See our sailing/cruise path for you below...

Our live-aboard couples/pair sailing lessons allows the two of you to immerse yourself in the sailing lifestyle. Each course you take will be private and allow us to focus on building your skills as a team, while also giving you opportunities for single-handed sailing. Hey, you have to sleep sometime, right!

Each course will progressively prepare both of you to confidently sail the boat in a coastal cruising environment, as well as teach you provisioning, coastal navigation, anchoring, docking, and more.

Our couple/pair sailing lessons have been created for a typical one week off from work vacation and allows us to work with you at a slower pace, assuring that you each are learning and, more importantly, retaining the skills and information.

Add an additional student or two (family or friend) to your lesson for $1500 per (4 student max per lesson).

For couples that are not interested in sleeping aboard we rent our one bedroom cottage at a rate of $125 per night or you may find other sleeping arrangements.
