Utilizing a modern, well maintained fleet with the latest, most up to date electronics and gear, our extremely qualified and enthusiastic instructors will help you to achieve your sailing education goals, while having the trip of a lifetime.
No matter what your experience level, the journey is within your reach. Utilizing a stepped process which introduces new sailors to the fundamentals of sailing while allowing more experienced sailors to hone and practice their skills, students will have ample on the water time to get familiar with the vessel before embarking on the cruising legs of our journeys. Most Cuba trips allow the opportunity for students to test for their 101, 103, and 104 certifications. Our instructors will make sure you get the most out of your class and will not push you to take on more certifications than you are ready to take on. This allows novice sailors to truly concentrate on fundamental skills, while more practiced students can use their time to concentrate on the skills associated with higher level certifications.
With a true emphasis on the cruising lifestyle and the adventures that come with it, you’ll make new friends and memories to last a lifetime. The adventure doesn’t end when you step ashore as we will be exploring the city of Havana and interacting with the Cuban people in culturally meaningful ways. We’ve got you covered with transportation and amazing activities to truly make this an incredible and unique educational cruising adventure!
