Scenic Cruise
Safe and enjoyable sailing is the result of doing a lot of little things correctly. We offer a comprehensive learning experience that will give beginners and novice sailors the skills to bareboat charter or to confidently handle their own boats in coastal waters.

The following courses provide a good combination of classroom and on the water instruction. We emphasize hands-on experience to help you develop your skills and confidence.

Oriental's School Of Sailing offers two courses for sailors - Basic Keelboat Certification and Coastal Navigation.
