Try Florida Yacht Charters & Sales - Sailing School & Instruction
They had a different name 30 years ago when I got an ASA
-- American Sailing Association bareboat charter certification
from them. But they are a top notch outfit and can take you from zero to certification
quickly. They do their basic schooling in Biscayne Bay which allows you to learn even when the Atlantic outside is kicking up too much.
- - Whatever school
you choose, be sure to investigate their "band name" of the certification program. ASA
is recognized by most of the Caribbean bareboat
chartering outfits so you can easily rent a boat for a week in Paradise with friends.
- - Bareboat chartering is the key to learning beyond the classroom and also to experience all the difference makes/models/brands of boats in anticipation of finding the boat that is best for your desires in the future.
