Our sailing school specializes in private, live-aboard sailing classes for couples, families, and friends who want to acquire the skills needed for bareboat chartering, cruising, or future yacht ownership. Our sailing classes are engineered to get you as much experience and confidence on the water as possible. We limit our class size, extend our class length, and provide skilled, dedicated sailing instructors to ensure students receive the best sailing instruction available.
We are the ideal sailing school for couples, families and friends who want to learn the art and science of sailing - together.

We offer bareboat charters along the Emerald Gulf Coast of Florida. Our area offers some of the finest cruising in Florida - or anywhere. Our bareboat charters have been featured in Cruising World, Sail, and Sailing magzines. If you're looking for that "different" bareboat charter -- you've got to experience cruising in our area to believe it. We're convinced the Emerald Coast is the best kept sailing secret in the world! We feature Beneteau, Hunter, and Catalina yachts.

Enjoy a relaxing sailing day sail with a USCG licensed Captain on beautiful Santa Rosa Sound, Pensacola Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico.
All of our USCG Captains are also ASA Certified Instructors, and are happy to allow anyone in your sailing party to take the helm or work the sheets. You just might enjoy working a bit on the sail, or simply relax and let the Captain single hand the vessel. You might even enjoy learning a bit as you go. All of our Captains are easy going veterans who are wise enough to leave you alone to enjoy the sail or can answer questions or share sailing stories as much as you would like.

Our sailing school and charter base are located on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida in an area known as the Emerald Coast. We are in the Florida Panhandle, very close to the Florida-Alabama line.
Our boats are at Sabine Marina on Pensacola Beach. Our offices and classrooms are in Gulf Breeze, just across the Pensacola Beach Bridge from the marina. We feature Santa Rosa Sound, the Gulf Intra-coastal Waterway (GICW), the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola Bay, Perdido Bay, scenic bayous, sugar white sands, gorgeous sunsets and more.
This secton of NOAA Chart No. 11378, ICW Santa Rosa Sound to Dauphin Island, shows Little Sabine, where our boats are located, the Gulf Intra-Coastal Waterway, Pensacola Bay, Pensacola Pass, Gulf of Mexico, and gives you an idea of how varied and interesting our teaching and chartering grounds are.
