Kristen made it easy to charter a boat and work with our schedule. Very kind. Captain Jim checked in with us before the trip to make sure we brought the right clothes and knew where to catch the boat. He was also a great captain and teacher. You can tell he loves sailing and a natural teacher. It was really... More

Instruction was excellent, weather was great and learned a great deal. If you have any inclination to try sailing, this is definitely the way to go

I just completed the ASA101 course offered by SailTime Virginia Beach. Captain Jim (our instructor) was a great guy who was incredibly knowledgeable about sailing and seamanship. We spent 90% of our time on the water and NOT in a stuffy classroom. I look forward to continue my training at this location in the near future!

My boyfriend has always wanted to go sailing so i thought this would be a good idea for an anniversary present. it was so much fun! even for me, who isn't really interested in learning to sail (truthfully). but it was a great experience and i would really recommend! prices aren't bad and the instructor was awesome.

I took my very first sailing class through SailTime Va Beach and I have nothing but wonderful things to say. Captain Dave W. was extremely professional and knowledgeable. I felt in very good hands and had full confidence in him. He exhibited amazing patience while teaching this new skill. I finished the ASA 101 course and walked away feeling ready... More

Our family took 101 with sail time this past spring and dedicated a long weekend to the 103/104 course with Captain Jim. It was a great experience. We experienced all weather including a tropical depression stirring up seas in the bay. Jim was a great instructor and read our family dynamics well. He helped make sure we all had a... More

My SailTime experience was great. Working with the American Sailing Association (ASA), SailTime provided expert instruction (Chris Cooper) on a safe and modern 22' vessel. I highly recommend this alternative to learning from "friends." The ASA certification is a great building block for continuing sailing education.

Started the day off with Captain Chris and my crewmates whom I had never before met. I'll admit it was tougher than the books. Our captain was patient and forgiving as was our vessel, thankfully. By the end of the first day we were beat. By the end of the second day we were sailors! We even docked under sail.... More

I took the introductory course to sailing after a five year hiatus. It was great. We spent very little time in the classroom and went right to the boats. I would highly recommend this.

Capt. Jim Lant is a great teacher. We had the perfect amount of serious teaching mixed with a a lot of laughs . I am looking forward to 103 . He was able to explain everything multiple ways. And the hands on sailing was great.
