We love getting off the beaten track. The destinations we have chosen are some of the most spectacular cruising grounds in the world. This will help you to gain amazing sailing experience. We look for places that have excellent conditions for sailing, lack of crowds, stunning natural beauty, abundant marine life and friendly locals. These are truly some of the best places in the world to learn to sail while on a vacation. With Nautilus Sailing you will get your ASA certification after one week of sailing lessons in the most beautiful places in the world.
With Nautilus Sailing ASA sailing certification, the emphasis is on learning how to sail through hands-on experience, in a beautiful part of the world. Mornings will typically be spent learning and practising new skills. In the afternoons we will set sail, enjoying the backdrop of spectacular beaches and islands, refining skills along the way. Once anchored for the afternoon, there will be free time to spend exploring, snorkelling, fishing, and relaxing… take your pick. We have certified sailing instructors that help you to get ASA certified.
