You will learn the basics of sailing in a safe, fun, and relaxed environment. No tests, no stress. This is a great opportunity to "test the waters" to see if sailing is for you. If you'd like to drive the boat, you can take the wheel! Or, if you like you can simply relax and let me do the work. Sailing is a very family friendly activity and I encourage all family members to get involved. We untie the lines and depart the marina at 10 and head out into Pensacola Bay. On our sail, we will do our best to spot our local wildlife; dolphins, pelicans, other seabirds, and if we're really lucky, a turtle. Pensacola is the home of the US Navy's precision flight team, the Blue Angels, and they are often seen zooming overhead as they practice their maneuvers. Midway through our sail we will drop our anchor, go for a swim, snorkel and have some snacks and drinks. We can also do a little beach combing or simply lounge in the sun. When we return to the dock at 1, you will be equipped with some newfound sailing knowledge and a take home workbook full of useful sailing info and tips.
I grew up in the Pensacola Beach area have over 40 years of sailing experience and know well this beautiful area and all it has to offer. I am a US Coast Guard licensed captain and an American Sailing Association (ASA) instructor. I have sailed up and down the coast of Florida, to and from a number of Caribbean Islands, the Gulf of Mexico, the Bahamas, Norway, and the Mediterranean but I love most my home town waters of Pensacola Bay and the surrounding area. My passion for sailing is infectious, and I can't wait to share this memorable sailing experience with you!

We will be sailing in Pensacola Bay where the waters are typically calm and smooth. Along with sailing, you'll learn about Pensacola's history and see historic sites such as Ft. Pickens from the water. When we anchor, you'll be able to swim ashore to a deserted beach and wiggle your toes in our sugar white sands.
