What you'll do

This experience is created to spend a full day at sea.

At 8 in the morning we must be ready to set sail. I will first give a brief overview of safety on board the sailboat and how to use its various areas.

Then we set sail for the Rosario islands. Along the way we will have a 4-hour sailing class, where I will show you how a sailboat works, what its parts are called, what are the functions of each sailor on the sailboat and they will also have the opportunity to perform each of the maneuvers on board yourselves.

Around 1 in the afternoon we will arrive at the Rosario islands, where we will jump into the sea to do snorkeling activities while our crew is in charge of preparing a delicious lunch.

From 2 to 3 in the afternoon we will have a discussion about the experiences that are lived in the sea and about what each of the participants expects to be their future relationship with sailing.

At around 3 in the afternoon we start sailing back to Cartagena, enjoying the sunset and entering the beautiful bay of Cartagena de Indias at night.

Meet your host, Carlos Andrés

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
Since I was a child I was passionate about sailing, and for 12 years I have been working professionally as a captain of sailboats and apart from that I have been sailing as a hobbyist in regattas in my city.

I have a nautical tourism company in Colombia where we have 5 boats, 4 of them sailing, which makes my passion for the sea a total delivery of 100% of my time.

I also like sailing for several days in the open sea, so it makes my experience at sea a security for those who want to learn to sail with me.

Of course, sailing without having fun is not an option, so apart from sailing I also love to tell stories from my past experiences and so with a couple of wines or a good beer I can have a good evening at nightfall.

Without a doubt, life is tastier at sea !!
