Learn to Sail Vacation in Mexico!

We're excited to be offering our first Women's Only cruising courses! We are honored to be teaming up with the great Captain Heather Richards of Sausalito for these two courses. Heather is a USCG Captain, live-aboard mother of three, and has been sailing since the age of 4! Read more about Heather's sailing journey and experience here. 

Puerto Escondido is a protected bay sitting 30km south of the historical town of Loreto on the Eastern side of Baja. This trip may offer an evening enjoying the authentic cuisine and local music that can be found in Loreto. Our main goal is to sail out to the nearby islands of Isla Carmen, Isla Danzante, or possibly to the Baja peninsula anchorage of Agua Verde. These islands offer protected anchorages from many angles that could include beautiful hiking, paddle boarding, or exploring a natural Salt Flat.

Our goal with these women's only courses out of Puerto Escondido this winter. Our goal is to promote a safe and encouraging space for women interested in learning cruising from and with other women! All students will step into a crew member role aboard Lintika. From sailing and navigation, to cooking to holding watch, students will learn about the boat systems and best practices we utilize to run a blue water boat. 

December temps range from 77°F to a low of 56°F.
