Learn to sail on beautiful waterways


Enjoying a relaxing sailing cruise at your leisure, letting us do the sailing...

Either way, Coastal Carolina Sailing School & Day Cruises can make these imaginings a reality.  Located on Hilton Head Island, SC, our NauticEd Instructors will teach you what you need to be knowledgeable, competent and confident on the water to earn your certification.

Learning to sail affords you a priceless type of freedom, but you'll be happy to see that we offer the most affordable classes.

We also offer day cruises on the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway for pleasure and relaxation, with nearly year-round schedule due to our highly desirable Lowcountry latitude.
