Our Locations: Marsh Harbour, Bahamas
At our Marsh Harbour location in the Bahamas, we specialize in teaching live-aboard courses on luxurious cruising catamarans. Marsh Harbour is the capital of the Abaco Islands district of the Bahamas and the third largest city in that country. The Abacos have some of the best sailing in the Caribbean, especially in the winter. Most of our sailing is in the Sea of Abaco, which offers protection from winter cold fronts.
Courses and Schedules
At our Bahamas location, we offer Course A Plus Catamaran. This class combines the Basic Sailing (ASA 101), Basic Coastal Cruising (ASA 103), Bareboat Chartering (ASA 104) and Cruising Catamaran (ASA 114) certifications into a weeklong live-aboard cruising course. Please see ASA Course Summaries for details on each certification standard.

Marsh Harbour has most of the services and amenities you’d expect to find in a small American town, including several excellent restaurants and shops. It’s nestled near the center of Great Abaco Island, not far from the settlements of Hopetown and Man of War Cay. Our journey will take us south to Little Harbour, home of internationally known bronze sculptor Randolph Johnson (deceased), his art gallery, and the world famous Pete’s Pub.
