Veteran sailors at On the Beach Watersport launch guests on ocean voyages aboard fiberglass Hobie 16 sailboats. During one-hour lessons, seasoned mariners with at least 25 years of experience pull from their stores of knowledge and Old Bay seafood rub to devise custom curriculums for sailors of any ability. Students may hang side-by-side with their instructor from the boat’s dual-trapeze rig or heed directions to adjust the jib, speeding the 16-foot vessel into the wind.
Proficient sailboat captains can ferry up to three passengers, based on height and weight limitations, for a pleasure cruise on the shoreline’s crystalline waters. The staff outfits the party with life jackets before wishing them bon voyage, waving their stick-on handlebar mustaches as the boat’s asymmetrical hull darts into the deep to seek out golden tans and photogenic marine animals.
On the Beach Watersport
On the Beach's owners, Ken "The Sun Tan Man" and Captain Tony, provide all the gear needed for a relaxing and adventurous day at the beach. Behind the Royal Vista Resort, the beachside shop rents out maritime toys—Wave Runners, sailboats, kayaks, and boogie boards— to help tourists and locals to soak up sun, skim across waves, and lounge on the sand. The shop’s seasoned mariners—all with at least 25 years of experience—pull from their stores of knowledge and Old Bay seafood rub to devise custom lessons for sailors of any ability. Ken and Tony recognize that some people and all wicked witches might rather gaze at the water than be dampened by it. To cater to this landlubbing demographic, On the Beach rents out bicycles or shaded stays underneath beachside cabanas.
