  • Sail with comfortable, modern and luxorious sailing boats;
  • Holiday with Unforgetable experience and full of activities!

We invite you to join one of our sail training sessions and explore the natural beauty of the Mediterranean and Aegean Sea. We offer courses year-round, so just choose the date that fits you and participate in one of our MCA-approved training voyages. We offer quality sailing education and constant supervision by our highly trained instructors, who are always ready to answer your questions or offer advice. Upon completion of the course and a successful exam result, you will be presented with a MCA-approved IYT certificate. This IYT certificate will enable you to skipper a yacht in almost any part of the world, since IYT is recognized by over 40 countries. This means you can confidently and safely charter/buy a yacht almost anywhere you want!

A typical training course starts from Marmaris and follows the route you have chosen. Theory and practical training is given while you live on the yacht, 24 hours a day. Along the route, we can anchor near idyllic islands or in a secret cove, as you dive into the aquamarine beauty of the sea. Behold spectacular sunsets as you dine on local delicacies, fall asleep under the star-studded sky and find true peace of mind... Explore historical sites; let your eyes feast upon the plethora of sea-life, live a life you could have only have read about before! After you have returned to your normal life, all of this might seem like a dream to you, but that IYT certificate will prove that dreams do come true.

Our trips are either one or two weeks and usually start from Marmaris.  Arrival and departure to the yacht is on Saturdays. You can select a route in the  Routes section. You can browse through our timetable in the Schedule section and decide on when to join. If you join as a group or if all the participants of that week agree, we can change our route. Commonly asked questions are answered in the F.A.Q. section and we are always happy to respond to your inquires in person.
