Our programs are top notch. Our instructors are U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captains.

Southwest Florida offers some of the finest and most varied cruising anywhere. We feel it's the perfect area for our live-aboard, Learn-To-Cruise program. From remote islands to first-class marinas and resorts, we have it all!.

Our fleet is located at Tarpon Point Marina in Cape Coral, Florida, and is one of the nicest marine resorts in the area. Tarpon Point is home to the Westin Resort and Spa. Our customers have access to the pool and fitness facility. The property is also home to Marker 92 Restaurant, The Nauti Mermaid Bar & Grill, and Pinchers Seafood Restaurant. Along the Promenade you will find many fine shops and galleries. Located at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River, Tarpon Point is at the gateway to the barrier islands of Southwest Florida. After your course, you may want to charter a yacht with us to put your skills into practice.
