Offshore Sailing School Tip: Little is more calming than the idea of sailing to an island far, far away from the hectic life many of us live. That's why Steve and Doris Colgate--owners of the well-respected Offshore Sailing School--decided to offer their skills and sailing know-how at South Seas Island Resort, a Captiva Island Sailing School. With year-round balmy breezes on Florida's Gulf coast, it's an ideal location for a learning vacation under sail!
Captiva Island is surrounded by bays and Gulf waters with great opportunities to learn sailing or perfect your existing skills. Sailing isn't the only thing to do at the Captiva Island Sailing School. South Seas Island Resort basks on miles of sandy, shell-strewn beaches. It has a brand new 3-par executive golf course, state-of-the-art tennis courts, miles of running and bicycling paths, lagoon fishing, kayaking and more. Manatees play in the lovely Yacht Harbour, where the Offshore Sailing School fleet resides.
