Whether a novice or seasoned sailor, you will advance your sailing skills on the world’s most beautiful waters under the guidance of ActionQuest’s incredible staff.
Our licensed, certified instructors teach internationally-recognized sailing courses through IYT (International Yacht Training) during any of our sailing focused camps.
Many of our staff were once AQ students when they were teenagers, so they can relate to the power of adventure and discovery while under sail. Our international summer camps for teens give you a sailing experience that you’ll never forget.
All of our adventure summer sailing camps for teenagers include some time spent living aboard a yacht and most are run full-time aboard one of our ActionQuest vessels. This is a core component of any AQ experience. Beyond the fun, living and learning aboard a yacht offers a perfect environment to develop leadership and communication skills, as there is nothing contrived about teamwork when working together as part of a tight-knit crew.
Based on your experience, we can teach the following sailing courses…
“I've dreamed about coming here for two years and it has lived up to every expectation I've had. Your program has gotten me hooked on sailing and I might get some sort of job doing it in the future. Thank you for the opportunity. Your notecards at the last Lifeworks forum helped me realize that I want to be an author. If I ever get a book published, you'll get one of the first copies. I loved the recording we listened to because that night I wrote a letter I should've written five years ago. If not for the reminder of my own mortality I might never have done it.”
“ActionQuest was truly an amazing experience for me. It taught me the importance of working as one group even though we are all very different people. I'll never forget the lessons I learned or the people I met while at ActionQuest.”
“Wow. I've been begging my parents to let me come here for years. I had no idea that ActionQuest would impact my life as much as it did. I feel like a whole new person. I feel good about myself. I feel confident in myself and in others for the first time in a looooong time. Living on a boat with 15 strangers was the experience of a lifetime. I have made 15 new friends for life. Thank you ActionQuest.”
“Thank you AQ for an amazing 3 weeks in the BVI. I have learned that being on the water is something I need in my life. All the staff is amazing and are people that I can look up to and aspire to be. The skill I have gained with my diving is unbelievable and I have grown so much both in my skills and as a person. Even though I am more confused on what I want to do with my life I know I want it to be on or close to the ocean with diving and sailling. Thanks for an unbelievable experience.”
