Sail beautiful Pensacola Bay and adjacent waters on a 30' Catalina with Captain Bob.

My wife and I took ASA 101 with Floridaze Sailing and Capt Bob; I had sailed previously but my wife was a complete novice. The instruction we both received was first class and definitely benefited from obvious experience Bob can draw upon. I would wholeheartedly endorse Floridaze to anyone considering any ASA course, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Tack... More

Selected Capt Bob for my instructor for my sailing 101, 103 and 104. Having sailed previously I was hoping to get the rust off and refine my skills. Bob was absolutely outstanding. He has a great professional demeanor and is easy to work with. He is a master at his craft and has a passion for sailing that is infectious.... More

My husband Brad and I decided to take sailing 101 and 103 with Floridaze Sailing and it was the best thing. We have always talked about buying a boat and sailing away but we weren't comfortable buying a boat before we knew how to sail. We talked to Bob, ordered our books and schedule a time to come down. Once... More

Taking sailing lessons with Captain Bob and Floridaze Sailing School was a great experience. I expected to learn a little and to have a nice time doing so. Instead, I learned a tremendous amount and spent a fabulous few days on the water making new friends and enjoying the beauty of northwest Florida. Some people can sail, and some people... More

Instead of our usual week lying on the beach and often being in different places, our family spent four days learning how to sail with Captain Bob. Bob had to work with people of different ages and sailing experience (including complete novices) and was an outstanding instructor for all. Our classroom was the boat itself and Cpt. Bob’s approach to... More

When my friend told me he wanted to learn how to sail, I searched the Gulf Coast for a good organization to help me, and I found Floridaze Sailing online. I exchanged a few emails with Captain Bob, and he turned out to not only be a great captain, but also a great tour guide, teacher, and friend to the... More

Bob and Linda, our captain and co-captain took such good care of us and showed us so much about sailing. I'm not ready to solo, but with a few more sailings, I feel certain they'll have me ready!

My husband and I took sailing lessons from Capt Bob, Aug, 2009, to become certified in bareboat coastal cruising. Captain Bob was very hard on us during our lessons. He was highly critical of our sailing, insisted on perfection in our navigation and opened a can of you know what on us at times! He gave us so much homework... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my day on the water with Captain Bob and crew. Signed up for a sunset cruise, and in addition to being entertained with sailing stories, rum drinks, and Jimmy Buffet, Capt. Bob taught us the basics of sailing without us even realizing we were being taught. Will come back for more!
