Bluewater Sailing Background

Bluewater Sailing has been helping our friends with their nautical plans on the water in Southern California since 1978. We are a full service operation with three primary business markets: sail education, bareboat rentals and skippered charters. Bluewater Sailing is a leader within each of these strategic markets. Even after 23 years of business, Bluewater Sailing has more than quadrupled its business volume since 1998 within our four primary business areas as follows:

  • Sail Education: We teach beginning through advanced classes for sailors with all levels of experience in group or private format on a wide variety of Bluewater vessels. We can also provide instruction on the owner's boat: something we call BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat). All of our experienced instructors are professionally certified and average more than 20 years experience on the water. In addition, Bluewater is one of the very few facilities qualified to certify students as well as national level instructors through the American Sailing Association (ASA) utilizing on site staff.

    Our group classes have only 3 to 4 students per instructor, so each student has the opportunity to receive a great deal of personal attention. Tuition for our Basic Keelboat and Basic Coastal Cruising classes includes a semi-private checkout on an appropriate practice or charter boat. Private lessons and live-aboard classes are also available. These programs can provide an even greater level of schedule flexibility and customization of course materials. The option of American Sailing Association is provided at many different levels for those people who wish to become certified by National Standards.

  • Bareboat Rentals: We offer a wide variety of boat sizes from 14' to 42'. We keep a very well maintained fleet of charter and practice boats year round. Bareboat chartering with Bluewater Sailing is contingent upon successfully completing a checkout prior to the day of charter. This checkout will orient you with the boat and the cruising area, but is not meant to be instructional. It is mandatory that the skipper be well trained and knowledgeable. Prior experience on a boat such as the one to be chartered is required and essential. If you wish to bypass the checkout procedure, experienced sailing instructor captains are available to sail with you and assist for an additional fee.

  • Skippered Charters: We work with dozens of the top caliber hotels as well as people from dozens of countries each year to provide both a boat and captain for those people who want to enjoy a day out on the beautiful waters of Southern California with a captain to sail for them. Our many years of careful development and selection of only the most experienced instructor captains has resulted in our ability to respond to a wide range of requests, including the inevitable last minute inquiries. All of our skippered charter vessels perform beautifully at sea and have many amenities for added comfort and convenience. Additional information and layout sheets regarding our larger skippered charter vessels are available.

  • Sunsail Partnership: Bluewater Sailing is a member of the Sunsail Sailing School Network. As such we provide exclusive boating education for Sunsail which is an international corporation headquartered in England. In addition, we provide yacht charter services for Sunsail, which provides Bluewater Sailing with access to over 1,200 boats located in over 40 beautiful vacation destinations within 17 countries.

  • Speakers' Bureau: Bluewater Sailing frequently provides a no-cost speaker for yacht clubs, schools, and other organizations who might enjoy a fun session on topics such as 'Crew Overboard' or 'Sailing in the 1700s'. Please let us know if you have a non-profit organization in mind that might enjoy hearing more about a variety of sailing topics.
