Private Sailing Instruction

This video was produced by one of our sailors, Shaun Allen, while at dock the evening of his ASA 104 cruise.


Sail by day, enjoy the night!

If you are interested in the highest level of personal attention and instruction this is for you. This course is on YOUR schedule. Your instructor will pick you up at the airport if needed then introduce you to your 30' floating vacation home so that you can immediately feel comfortable. Each day our USCG licensed and ASA certified instructor will provide you the best individual instruction during the day then depart the sailboat for your privacy and enjoyment in the afternoon when you dock. ASA 101 is typically sailed on the Hunter 23.5 while we sail ASA 103 and up on the Hunter 29.5. After your class work is complete you will get to immediately test out your new found skills by "chartering" the sailboat for your final day(s). You leave with the certifications major charter companies look for and chartering experience in your logbook! Couples may bring their children along at no additional cost to enjoy sailing or learn together as crew. ASA certification costs for children additional if desired.
