American Sailing Academy in Key Largo
Key Largo, Florida Keys

American Sailing Academy in Key Largo is located on the grounds of the Key Lime Sailing Club and cottages resort on Buttonwood Sound in Key Largo, Florida. This ideal setting at the beginning of the Florida Keys will allow you to combine your lifetime ‘learn to sail’ dreams into the vacation of a lifetime! If you choose to, you can reserve one of our vacation cottages and stay on the resort rather than commuting or staying in a hotel. Imagine staying here while you attend classes! You’ll have continuous access to experienced Captains / instructors, some of the best instruction in the industry, and in the evenings, sit in the tiki hut and share knowledge and “sea stories” with other resort guests, who are sailors from all over the world, and all experience levels. Truly immersion training!

In addition to our courses, we also offer crewed and bareboat charters on boats up up 50 feet in length. Want to sail but don’t want the hassle of owning a boat? Join our sailing club, the Skipper’s Society. You do the sailing, we take care of everything else. We don’t skimp on courses. Our basic keelboat and basic coastal cruising courses are each a full three days yet cost about the same as other schools charge for two days.
