Florida Sailing & Cruising School is one of the oldest ASA schools in the country. We have been in business for 30+ years, since 1984.
Our courses are small and targeted to meet each student’s goals.
All courses are liveaboard and the course fees include accommodations on the vessel, the instructor, course materials and certification from ASA.
Our classes are small and all hands-on. The ‘classroom’ is the boat! We prepare our students for yacht chartering and yacht ownership.
