Aventura Sailing Academy is Dana Point Harbor’s Premier Sailing Club and Academy. For over 44 years we have been successfully teaching students, from the beginner to the advanced. We are a West Coast leader in producing well trained Sailors.

USCG Master Class 100T Captain Ric Dahlin (Director of  Academy) is also a Collegiate level sailing instructor, and as a professional educator, Aventura’s classroom and lectures have been providing “best in class” sailing instruction with top results. All of our Certified ASA instructors are friendly and dedicated to your sailing instruction. Aventura Academy’s classes are challenging, fun and engaging but most importantly highly effective.

Your Basic Keel boat (ASA 101) begins on a 27’ to 30’ Sailboat equipped with wheel helm, roller furling jib, inboard diesel engine, and fixed keel. Aventura’s training sailboats provide our students practical experience and a direct pathway to skippering their personal Bareboat Charter.

We offer all of the American Sailing Association (ASA) Certificates, either in group settings or in private classes. Sailing courses for single certificates, combo certificates, and live aboard offshore classes provide a full menu of choices for our Students.

Dana Point Harbor is one of the West Coast’s best sailing harbors, minutes from slip to open ocean and known for year round favorable sailing weather. Conveniently located within a day’s sail to Catalina Island, Southern California’s top sailing destination, Aventura’s base location enables students and members easy access to the best of Southern California Sailing.

Whether you are just visiting and are interested in a sailing vacation with an ASA Certificate or a local resident looking for access to the sailing lifestyle, Aventura’s Sailing Club and ASA Academy can help you set sail on your adventure.
