At Sail Olympia we strive to share our love for the water, teaching, great food, and adventure with others.
After taking classes, teaching, and chartering with other companies, we began dreaming of a new kind of a sailing school.
Sail Olympia is that dream: a sailing school that focuses not only on technical competencies but on partnering and communication. In addition to bringing our experience sailing as a couple and our backgrounds in education, we want to focus on the details that turn a certification class into the ultimate vacation — excellent food, a relaxing environment, and wonderful company.
Located at the southern tip of the Puget Sound, Olympia is a short distance from both Portland and Seattle but still maintains the charm of a small community.
In Budd Inlet you can learn to sail in perfect conditions without worrying about ferry traffic or ultra-crowded marinas. On multi-day trips, we’re able to explore the islands and small towns of the Puget Sound and, if we’re lucky, spot some of the magnificent wildlife that calls it home.
