Midbay Sailing is based out of Bluewater Bay Marina in Niceville, Florida on the North side of the Choctawhatchee Bay. We are a short drive from Destin and offer sailing charters, experience sailing classes and American Sailing courses.
If you are interested in an introduction to sailing with minimal time commitment, schedule an experience sailing or experience cruising class. These are 2 ½ hour on the water hands on classes. Our marina allows us to get out and sail in five minutes from leaving the dock, so we maximize time on the water.
We also offer sailing charters aboard a monohull or catamaran for those looking to relax and enjoy some time on the water and let us do the work. Bareboat charters are also available for qualified sailors.
Come visit us on Florida’s Gulf Coast for the beautiful water views and great sailing.
