GoBaja Sailing  is located in La Paz, Baja California Sur, on the edge of the amazing Sea of Cortez. Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez “The Aquarium of the World”.   With deserted desert islands just a few hours away this is the perfect place to learn to sail and earn your sailing certificates while enjoying fantastic sailing conditions, breathtaking marine life and an abundance of activities. Watch whales and giant manta rays glide by, snorkel with playful sea lions, and possibly catch a fish for dinner. This truly is a spectacular place to learn to sail and earn your ASA Bareboat Charter Certification.  Then once you have your certification come on back with family and friends and spend a week or two as skipper on a bareboat charter from our sister company GoBajaCharters.

We offer a week-long liveaboard course that covers ASA 101 – 104 and land-based course for ASA 101 – 103, and an two night ASA 104 course as a stand alone or as an add-on for the ASA 101 – 103 course and for those who already have their ASA 101 – 103 certification.

Learning to sail in Mexico will give you the best of two worlds, a wonderful vacation and excellent sail training.  We look forward to seeing you in La Paz soon.
