Florida Sailing Lessons

Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina on Ft. Myers Beach

On the Southwest Florida Gulf Coast, between old-world Naples and laid-back Sanibel and Captiva Islands, the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina sits nestled in a stunning environment at the tip of Estero Island on Fort Myers Beach. Sweeping beachfront views and a mile of sugar-white sand stretching along the Gulf of Mexico provide the perfect setting for your next vacation in Florida. Sailing lessons are the premier choice for families and vacationing couples on the Gulf Coast. Sailing around the beaches of Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Islands allows you to learn while taking in gorgeous beachfront views. 

All levels of instruction available

Offshores's beach sailboat fleet is docked at the Pink Shell Marina on the inner channel with open Gulf coast sailing a few minutes away - the perfect location for Catamaran Lessons in Florida, as well as Learn to Sail and Cruising courses for singles, couples and families on 26' to 47' monohulls and catamarans. Consider getting on the Fast Track to Cruising and earn your bareboat cruising certification in one week - no prior experience required!

2014 resort gifts for you for a 5-night or longer stay— to celebrate Offshore's 50th Anniversary!

When you check-in for your sailing certification course at the resort and stay a minimum of 5 nights, you will receive these wonderful gifts:

  • Complimentary welcome drinks for two
  • Two complimentary tickets per day for a FULL breakfast buffet at the resort
  • Two-for-one Aqua Traditional Swedish 50-minute massage at the beautiful Aquagene Spa, to be used once during your stay (one half price per person if two people, two half-price massages if a single) 

Fourth Night Free August 17-December 18, 2014

If you take our three-day Learn to Sail or Performance Sailing course during this period, why not tack on a fourth night and enjoy the sights and amenities of this fun place before you head home? It's absolutely free, even the $20 per room resort fee for that day (which everyone must pay upon departure). And, oh, by the way - if you take the five-day Learn to Sail or Bareboat Cruising Preparation Course, one day of your stay is free too during this period.

Gulf Coast Sailing, Fort Myers

Dolphins play in your wake as you cut through blue-green water and occasionally frolicking rays are seen feeding and hovering around the docks. Snowy egrets and great blue herons sit stoically waiting for a morsel to glide by while brown pelicans dive for dinner. And you will surely enjoy the beach. Florida Sailing Lessons are taught by our instructors who truly care about your success and enjoyment while sailing! And our location on Ft. Myers Beach offers a relaxed and fun learning experience.

Relax and watch the Green Flash as the sun sets

After an invigorating day on the water, relax at Aquagene, a 6,000-square-foot spa that truly inspires all who enter its doors. In state-of-the-art comfort, the spa features an extensive menu of treatments and services in twelve spacious, fully equipped treatment rooms. Or frolic on the beach by day and as the sun sets on a calm night, watch for that magic green flash when the sun dips under the horizon. Florida Sailing Lessons from Offshore Sailing School are only the beginning of your fun vacation on Fort Myers Beach!

Beautiful Gulf view suites

You’ll stay in beautiful, nautically appointed one or two-bedroom units with full kitchens or kitchenettes and a large lanai overlooking the Gulf and striking sunsets to the west.
