Come learn to sail (and have a ton of fun) with us on the beautiful Mediterranean coast of Israel. We offer a full range of ASA courses which are taught at our bases at the Herzliya and Haifa marinas.
Whether you’re new to sailing, or already have some sea miles in your log, we’ll tailor a program for you – from the ASA 101 basic sailing and ASA 103 cruising, to the ASA 104 bareboat chartering. With our own Lagoon 380 catamaran in Herzliya you can acquire the ASA 114 Cruising Catamaran certification which will let you charter one of these very popular craft.
Our location on the Eastern Mediterranean allows us to offer courses year-round for both locals and tourists alike. As a part of the BlueWave-Tashoot Sailing Academy, ASA course graduates can choose from a wide range of further sailing activities like regularly scheduled group sails with our club, opportunity to charter one of our yachts here in Israel or abroad, advanced sailing courses, international flotillas organized by the club, and much more. Our instructors are considered the tops in Israel, with classes taught in both English and Hebrew.
Come learn to sail the ASA way, and later choose from a range of flotillas and bareboat charters in the nearby Greek Islands or Turkey. All of our team are avid sailors, so let one of our charter department consultants guide you towards the best options for sailing in the Med or anywhere in the world.
We’re the agent for Beneteau Yachts in Israel, so naturally our fleet is made up of recent model, and immaculately maintained Beneteau and Lagoon yachts ranging from 35-45 feet. With part of our charter fleet based in Limassol, Cyprus, licensed ASA sailors may also charter and enjoy the beautiful cruising grounds of Cyprus and nearby Turkey or Greece.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you aboard at one of our BlueWave-Tashoot ASA sailing schools in Israel. Fair Winds!
