JUST LEARN TO SAIL

Sailing Lessons Tampa

We are NOT an ASA Sailing School, you will NOT receive an ASA certification from us, but, you WILL know how to run a sailboat! We believe that many people out there just want to sail! No classroom, no exams, just sailing instruction for someone who wants to learn how to cruise a larger sailboat.

We simply put you behind the wheel of a 30+ foot 10,000 lb ocean cruiser in the Gulf of Mexico and teach you all you need to know to take it from here to wherever you want to go in the wild blue yonder!

Unlike ASA sailing, WE DON'T CHARGE PER PERSON. Our rates are for the boat and the instructor. Rates include instruction for up to 4 people! You can bring along a wife, or friend or two friends or even three! They don't even need to be involved in the class, they can just sit up on deck and enjoy the sail!

We offer three main sailing courses: Introduction to sailing (4 hours), Beginners Sailing Class (8 hours) and Intermediate-Advanced Sailing Class (8 hours).

SAILING SCHOOL TESTIMONIALS

Very patient and informative... eager to teach us whatever we wanted to know! They really tailored the class to our needs as a sailing family.
It was a great opportunity to experience the thrill of sailing a larger boat with the confidence of having a captain and instructor available to answer our questions. It is well worth the drive to the west coast to attend any of their sailing classes.

Thanks so much for the sailing lessons today. Captain Roland is an ideal teacher. He knows everything, but only interjects when it is helpful. He understood that I was a novice but he allowed me to experiment and luff and figure things out on my own...and then when I asked for help he would suggest what he might have done, and explain why what I had been doing didn't work.
Earlier this week I realized that I had one open day in Florida. I'd sailed for the first time recently and I wanted to learn more, but if I was going to spend my one free day on sailing I wanted to really sail; to get to handle a boat and see if I could improve. Your charter service let me do that. Captain Roland was patient, totally proficient, and consistently supportive. He explained the points of sail I was having trouble with, described basic weather patterns and signs, and let me go at my own pace. I did improve, and the experience and the trip were delightful.
Thanks again,

HOW IT WORKS

18 foot pontoon rental

You make a reservation either by phone or online. You pay a non-refundable 30% deposit via credit card (either online or over the phone) to confirm your reservation. NO deposit, NO reservation. We don't "pencil" people in, don't bother asking - our computerized reservation system does not have a pencil mode! Should the weather be deemed unsafe we will give you a literal "rain check" to another date, or refund your deposit in full.

You arrive 15-20 minutes before your allotted departure time. Do not bring glass containers of any type, such as bottled beer, drinking glasses, etc. Glass breaks when the sailboat is a-rockin'! You MAY bring bottled WHITE wine or champagne - we will stow it in the galley. ABSOLUTELY NO RED WINE!!

Wear non-marking sandals or shoes (nothing with a black sole) or go barefoot when you climb on board. We take the rest of your money either in cash, debit card or credit. If you're late it is NOT added onto to your time out on the water.
