Offshore Sailing School Tip: If you love adventure and being near the water, consider taking a basic sailing course at a Florida Keys sailing school.
Reliable breezes make your sailing adventure thoroughly memorable, enjoyable and rewarding. Offshore Sailing School offers a course at Hawks Cay Resort, a beautiful, Caribbean-like location for beginner sailing courses. Located on Duck Key just eight miles north of Marathon, sailing in the Florida Keys is about as close to Caribbean sailing as you can get without leaving the states.
In beginning sailboat lessons, you'll practice basic sailing skills such as rigging, winch techniques, maneuvering, stopping and starting under sail, spinnaker techniques and boat balance.
When you're not learning how to sail, there's plenty of other fun activities to complement your learning vacation. Don't miss the Dolphin Connection at Hawk's Cay, an educational experience where you can get up close with these wonderful creatures of the sea. Try your hand at fishing, diving, snorkeling or kayaking--all within a short distance of this fabulous Florida Keys Sailing School.
