Nautical Escapes has one purpose: get people out on the water. The company’s CYA-certified instructors teach an array of courses that range from three-hour introductory sailing courses for beginners to more comprehensive 30-hour courses for those who seek a grander prize such as a sailing license or the password to Poseidon’s Netflix. In addition to a fleet of sailboats, Nautical Escapes docks a 27-foot yacht for private and group charters.
