Discover the hidden gems of Baja California Sur!

All plane routes eventually stop in Cabo!! There are direct flights from everywhere!! So, let’s get going (watch our video).

What better way is there to celebrate over 500,000 students that have graduated from ASA sailing instruction, than to sail in the Sea of Cortez? Hernan Cortez discovered the pearls in 1542. Now, in a much more charted world, it’s your turn to discover these pristine, protected islands, jam-packed with marine life. Thanks to a rigorous marine protection program that has been in place for several years, you get to see the beauties beneath the sea that are protected under certain fishing regulations.

The Sea of Cortez boasts a variety of sea life, such as parrot fish, mahi-mahi, trigger (excellent for ceviche), sea turtles, large manta rays, dolphins, and even humpback, pilot, blue, and orca whales! While snorkeling during sailing class holidays, our students see scallops and chocolate clams, which are very common in our marina, much like sea turtles. How about swimming with whale sharks? Ever been on your not-so-afraid bucket list? We will gladly arrange this type of snorkeling experience!

Before or after your sailing ASA instruction experience, in our 4 private double cabins, live on board 6 days / 7 nights, with an all-inclusive sailing certification course covering ASA 101, 103 and 104.

Couples 2 or more who book our all-inclusive can live aboard and access free private car transportation to our sailing base in La Paz. The new, 4-lane, divided highway makes the 1.5 hour drive from SJD to our beautiful Marina Costa Baja a piece of cake. The Beach Club, amazing service, and restaurants all around our sailing base make this place feel like home certainly for us, but also for you!

Why not come early and stay late for champion Gary Players’ ocean view golf course, ranked one of the best 18-hole courses in the world? We can gladly hook you up with a golf villa or marina view condo for far less than you would expect to pay anywhere else for this quality service and location.

On your way up from Cabo, stop at the famous “cult favorite off the grid” Art & Beer for the best Bloody Mary in the world with over 21 ingredients, including caviar, shrimp and scallops. If you’re not a bloody fan, what about a famous 5-juice Margarita or whole pineapple Piña Colada? People love to stop in one direction at the “Hotel California” for “Champagne on Ice,” as the Eagles song lyrics say, in beautiful Todos Santos!

Cold, rain, and snow do not exist in southern Baja!! Our summer is your winter! The prime sailing month for the Sea of Cortez is November (when water temperatures can still be in the 80’s to June when nights are still cool enough that A/C is not needed).

Our “Baja Special” you can book to be instructed by our amazing male and female ASA certified Captains for as little as $1,995 USD per person and double occupancy or $2,395 USD for a single occupancy in a double cabin, all-inclusive, with 3 meals a day, ASA 101,103 and 104 text books, an international log book, and a free membership to ASA in our amazing 455 DuFour sailing machine (all in one low price!).

A $750 USD deposit reserves your space and gets your ASA text books out so you can start studying now for this amazing ASA sailing experience!

What are you waiting for? Bookings are on a first come-first serve basis.
