Learn to Sail a 46 foot catamaran on your Odyssey Expeditions Adventure, with you at the helm!

Stepping aboard a sleek yacht and casting off from the dock excites even the most seasoned of sailors, but you do not have to be an 'old salt' to share the awaiting adventures. As you and your shipmates hoist the sails, you begin to discover the potentials of both the regions we visit and ourselves. There will be few moments when you confuse your voyage with a pampered cruise ship vacation or a day at a theme park; these are real adventures where you make things happen. The responsibility and joy of active participation and doing things on your own allows you to acquire valuable lifelong skills and accomplish goals. Upon return to port you will have uncovered confidences and abilities that would give the 'old salt' a run for his money. Fill your sails!
