Ft. Myers Beach Florida Sailing School

At The Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina

Florida Offshore Sailing School on Ft. Myers Beach offers you a great change of pace, on an island filled with Gulf Coast seafood restaurants, fun outdoor bistros, live music, funky shops, fashionable boutiques, and breathtaking sunsets. Here sweeping beachfront views and 1500 feet of sugar-white sand stretching along the Gulf of Mexico provide the perfect setting for your next Florida sailing vacation. Sailing lessons and bareboat sailing certification courses at The Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina are the premier choice for vacationing families, singles and couples. Sail with Offshore Sailing School in late summer and fall and get your third or fourth night free. If you take our three-day Learn to Sail or Performance Sailing course during this period, why not tack on a fourth night before heading home?

About The Pink Shell Beach Resort
& Marina

The four-star family-friendly Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina sits nestled in a stunning environment at the tip of Estero Island on Fort Myers Beach. When you check-in for your Florida sailing lessons you are greeted by an ambassador who shows you around the resort and takes you to your room. You also receive two welcome drinks and two tickets per day for the resort’s breakfast buffet. Everything you ever wanted to do on the water is available at Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina. On the beach are many water toys to rent. You can fish off the marina docks or rent small powerboats and go further out to fish or
explore. You can also go para-sailing and get a bird’s eye view of Estero Island and beyond.
