Sailing Courses

Cruise & Learn
Get your sailing certification and have fun sailing around Vancouver Island

Our sailing courses are flexible to teach students and families with a wide range of experience. It all depends on how much time you have, what level of certification you are aiming for and what kind of learning experience you want.

We offer Cruise and Learn sailing trips around Vancouver Island that combine fun with learning how to sail. Our sailing courses are typically week-long trips where you learn both how to sail and what you need to know to charter your own boat.  You will be fully involved in all aspects of running the sailing vessel and trip. As well as learning to sail, navigate, docking and anchoring, everyone pitches in with daily routines so that you get a feel of what it will be like to be on your own boat.

Our sailing courses cover both the inside and outside passages surrounding Vancouver Island. Destinations such as Desolation Sound, Gulf Island or the Sunshine Coast provide ample opportunity to learn the basics. Northern Vancouver Island destinations and the West Coast will challenge the more experienced sailor that already has a solid foundation to build on.
