Come sail away with Sail Cocoa Beach!  From basic to advanced courses, we can help you achieve your on-the-water goals! Located at Cape Crossing Resort and Marina, Sail Cocoa Beach has immediate access to both river and offshore experiences. Our students may experience most of the conditions they will experience in actual coastal conditions: tidal changes in Port Canaveral, river currents, using channel markers and buoys, anchoring in situations of wind and current, and many others. Few locations have such a variety of sailing conditions so nearby. Convenient to Orlando, Cocoa Beach, Melbourne, and the surrounding areas, we enjoy both Intracoastal and coastal sailing. For our out-of-state students, Orlando and Melbourne’s airports are less than an hour’s drive away. We have the best sailing in Northeast Florida! Our location in the heart of the Space Coast makes us a popular destination for singles, couples, and families. We are fortunate to have some of the best sailing conditions due to our location on the Indian River and Banana River. In addition to beautiful sailing conditions, there is much to see and do in your time out of class. From rocket launches to entertainment and beaches, we have it all! We currently have a Hunter 260 and Catalina 22 for ASA lessons and our sailing club.
