Catamaran

In the last few years catamarans have experienced explosive growth! We love the huge amount of space on a catamaran, the stability (nice not to rock while at anchor!), the shallow draft that allows access anchorages that are off limits to monohulls, and the speed when sailing downwind. Learning to sail a catamaran definitely has it’s differences from monohulls. If you are planning on sailing catamarans, then it’s best to spend a week onboard one learning how to sail and operate these vessels. We offer catamaran sailing courses in the Grenadines (Caribbean), Sea of Cortez (Mexico), Mallorca (Spain) and Tahiti (South Pacific). Our week long live aboard courses truly are an incredible experience! You will spend the week learning over 100 different skills and learn to comfortably sail and operate the vessel. Upon successful completion of the course you will earn ASA certification 101, 103, 104 and 114 (up to Cruising Catamaran certification) which allows you to charter catamarans internationally. This intensive course will give you the knowledge, skills and experience to charter catamarans, or help you set sail on your own vessel!

“I wasn’t very familiar with boating and less with sailing. Learned a lot while still enjoying every minute of it. The Sea of Cortez was an excellent sailing destination. ” G.D., Missouri
