Sailing vacations are for everyone.

Learn aboard your own Catalina 22 sailboat and the boat you learn on is designated yours for your entire vacation. You can take it out any time from sun up to sun down. It’s safe, exciting and ergonomically comfortable.

After you complete your course and get YOUR shiny new certification you can venture out Sailing on your own 22′ sailboat to discover awesome destinations like:

mud_bath1. A small Island in the Florida Everglades with a small sandy beach and a mud bath in the middle.

2. Maybe you would like to take off for the Mangrove Jungle tour where you will tow behind your sailboat one or two of our kayaks to a safe anchorage, then hop in your kayak to find mangrove covered tunnels that lead to a place called Hidden Lake. Once there we recommended to have your lunch, drinks, and snacks before heading back to your boat via different water trail that happens to have a rope swing for your enjoyment 1/2 way back to your sailboat.

3. Sail out to do some snorkeling off Grouper Creak or a sunken boat nearby.

4. Or you can just relax, sail your own destinations in the calm waters of Sunset Cove / Buttonwood Bay till the sun goes down.

Sailing brings friends, families and coworkers together. It opens a whole new world of lifetime opportunities afloat. It’s neither gender nor age-specific. If you would like to learn, these sailing vacations give you a whole new perspective on life.
