Over the course of a week, learn to sail and gain the knowledge, experience and certifications to charter sailboats anywhere in the world, and embark on your own sailing adventure!

Why Grenada and the Grenadines?

After sailing in other popular Caribbean destinations (like the British Virgin Islands and the Bahamas), we fell in love with the Grenadines. The “Spice Islands” offer a perfect blend of culture, dramatic landscapes, friendly people, abundant marine life, and unspoiled beaches. Ideal sailing conditions, and the lack of crowds, make this an excellent place to conduct our Caribbean sailing lessons and courses.

We highly recommend spending an extra couple of days, either before or after your trip, exploring this unique destination. Whether wandering through St. George (the historic and colorful capital), diving the reefs, taking in a rum distillery tour, visiting a cacao plantation, driving through the dense jungle to mountain waterfalls, or touring the island in a rental car, there is lots to see and do.
