Q & A

A week at the Academy

Exam ?

If your goal is to get a license at the end of your training, yes you have to take a written and a practical exam and pass with satisfactory grades.

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 Adaköy/Marmaris, 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.

Before we go out sailing, we go through our theoretical studies. During the day we sail approximately 5 to 6 hours to arrive at a new destination.
