This is a great place to learn to sail! Beautiful location, great instructors, and fun sailboats combine for an outstanding experience. I took the ASA 101 accelerated course (3 sessions over the course of 1 weekend) and enjoyed the mix of classroom study and practical sailing exercises. I plan to pursue additional certifications in the future and will do so... More

Instructors were fantastic and we had four different people over a three day period which was excellent. All very patient with hands on sailing skills would answer any and all questions no matter how silly they seemed - it was a wonderful experience. I definitely recommend anyone who wants to learn or try sailing to contact this school.

I just finished my ASA101, ASA103, and ASA104 certifications with this outfit and highly recommend Annapolis Sailing School. I looked at several different places and decided to go with this one due to the types of boats, location, and very limited class sizes. If memory serves, it wasn't the cheapest option out there - but the bang for the buck... More

A friend and I did the intro "2 Hour Try Sail." It was fantastic. Our instructor was really informative and helped us get a good sense of working the sails/tiller. I'm definitely going to continue on with the ASA Certifications and plan on joining the Keelboat Club to rent all summer long.

Your can either go on a twilight cruise, or, if you really want to learn sailing there are courses available. I took Basic Keelboat and Basic Coastal Cruising. Instructors were fantastic and the boats you use are ideal. Can't go wrong if you want ASA certifications.

We purchased a groupon for a two hour sailing lesson with up to five people. The others didn't show up so we wound up getting a private tour! Mike was our guide, and really let us "take the reins." He offered as much info as we wanted, but also allowed us to just relax and enjoy the beautiful weather. The... More

John did a fantastic job of helping us feel more comfortable on our new boat. We had a wonderful day, had a great time and learned enough to make our heads explode. It was worth every penny. Looking forward to another session after we compile our list of questions. Highly recommend !
