Sailing starts here…
As a part of the Key Lime Sailing Club and Cottages, the American Sailing Academy is one of the few facilities in the world to make learn-to-sail dreams come true in a perfect, economical, vacation setting. The resort has a fleet of Catalina 22’s available for guests to use as soon as they complete their classes and even larger boats for the advanced sailing courses. This is a unique learning experience. You can take your classes here, stay here if you choose, and be surrounded by sailors of all experience levels while you’re here.
We are also proud that we have developed and implemented intensive sail training for the British Royal Navy as well as comprehensive Girl Scouts programs using our award winning staff and facilities: a testimony to our dedication in providing quality sailing instructions at any level.
We will teach you to sail safely and with confidence. Our instructors have made sailing their profession, and are some of the best in the industry. When you attend class at our facility, you will not only learn the art and science of sailing, but also experience sailing as a lifestyle! We pride ourselves on providing a stress free learning experience. After all, learning to relax is part of learning to sail, right?
After you complete your basic (ASA-101) course, you will be able to sail off on your own and explore the beautiful waters of Buttonwood Sound and Florida Bay. If you decide to stay at Key Lime Sailing Club and Cottages, you will have a boat at your disposal for the rest of your stay! There simply is no other place like this.
