Creating Confident Sailors with Easygoing Personalized Training

Reluctant Partner?

Our “no yelling” style will ease any concerns that you and your partner may have about sailing or about the cruising lifestyle. Let us show you how enjoyable it can be.

Take The Drama  Out Or The Dream teaching couples to work to gether with no yelling

Learn about sailing and living aboard in a relaxed environment with Captain Jean and Captain Jeff  in Miami and the Florida Keys. The sailing is easygoing in the calm, protected water of this versatile marine environment off the southern coast of Florida. Earn American Sailing Association Certifications starting with Basic Keelboat through Bareboat Chartering and then move on to Advanced Costal Cruising. Anchor in a new spot each night as we explore the Keys. Bounded by the Gulf Stream and coral reefs of the Atlantic Ocean and the shallow flats and back country of Florida Bay, this warm, sunny string of tropical islands is the perfect retreat from stress.

Couples will enjoy working with Captains Jean and Jeff building confidence and learning about sailing. Together with your partner, you will learn how to feel safe and comfortable and in control of your boat. We believe that once you learn the skills of boat handling, however, you have only learned part of the equation. The other part is working together as a team. Captain Jean and Captain Jeff, who are both Coast Guard licensed captains and ASA Instructors, will work with you both individually and as a couple in a gentle and calm environment.

As a couple learn the skills you need for cruising while living aboard with us on a 41’ Morgan Out Island sailboat. Beginning sailors can practice and learn basic sailing skills on our 20’ keelboat. Learn about sailing, anchoring, docking and boat systems while exploring the protected waters of Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys.

We will help you set goals so that you learn at your own pace and have a great time doing it. You may want to take ASA Certification classes, including Bareboat Certification, or you simply may want to practice all facets of the cruising and sailing life. All skill levels will benefit from the individualized attention received from Captains Jean and Jeff.

Life onboard is not all study and boat handling, however. We visit local island restaurants to enjoy fresh seafood, tropical drinks and live music. And of course, snorkeling, fishing and socializing with other cruisers is all part of the plan. Let us show you how enjoyable the cruising life can be.

Your learn to sail vacation is a private charter. You will have lots of time learning how to operate  and navigate a sailboat so you can cruise on your own or feel comfortable doing bareboat charters.
