All of the training that take place at the Academy, both for recreational and professional students, happens on board with 100% real examples and scenarios. The moment you step onto the boat, you are the captain. The instructor is only there to assist you and give you necessary instructions. Our weekly programs start on Saturdays from our base in Marmaris Netsel Marina, and ends on Friday of the same week. You can check our destinations page to see where we sail to on regular basis.
We take advantage of every moment at our weekly courses. Everyday we sail to a different bay or island. Every place we go to, we manage to find somewhere to climb, do yoga, swim and exercise. So you can take the most out of your vacation.
