We love getting off the beaten track. The destinations we have chosen are some of the most spectacular cruising grounds in the world. We look for places that have excellent conditions for sailing, a 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.
On Nautilus Sailing courses, 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 practicing 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, snorkeling, fishing, and relaxing… take your pick. Where would you like to go?
Nautilus is like no other sailing company, and our trips are serious fun. Of course you want the certs, but we offer so much more.
We have an ever-growing list of passionate, outward bound, sailing fanatics who just love visiting new places and experiencing adventure. Every year we have several Alumni trips around the globe where past Nautilus graduates, and some of our team get together and just… you know. Sail. And Surf. And Snorkel. And Scuba…
