Caribbean Sailing Courses
Sailing Virgins is the highest-rated Caribbean sailing school according to TripAdvisor, Google and Facebook. We have earned this because our approach to sailing courses is different from any other sailing school Caribbean or otherwise. How? We gather your posse of new best friends for you:
Sailing for people in their 20s and 30s
Most of the students doing our sailing classes are in their 20s and 30s, and we have a fairly even split between guys and girls. The median age of our students is the early 30s. Sailing Virgins is the only Caribbean sailing school that offers such a niche approach.
As a result of this approach, our sailing courses are the stuff of legend. Our students come to do sailing classes and leave with a bunch of new friends, and sometimes an entirely new life direction. They also have the tools to undertake adventure in some of the cooler parts of the world.
Sailing in the Caribbean
Sailing Virgins operates primarily out of the Virgin Islands, which is located in the top part of the east Caribbean “banana-shaped” archipelago. As such, most of our courses begin and end in the Virgin Islands. This means our students tend to fly in and out of St Thomas airport (STT) in the US Virgin Islands, whether their course is based in the US Virgin Islands or the British Virgin Islands. It is a one-hour ferry ride between the US and the British side, and tickets for the ferry can be purchased before departure, so to keep it simple, just think about flights to STT.
Twice a year, Sailing Virgins offers an Island Adventure program, sailing between islands in the Caribbean island chain. On the Island Adventure program, you board the boat on one island and get off on another. Some of the islands we sail past include Antigua, Anguilla, Bequia, Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mustique, Saba Island, St Barthelemy (St Barths), St Martin and St Vincent.
