“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed with the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.” —Mark Twain
Want to learn to sail?
Go Baja Sailing, founded in 2010, is proud to be the first and best American Sailing Association Affiliate School in the Sea of Cortez waters in picturesque La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. With over 1500 sailing students graduated from our La Paz ASA sailing school you can be confident you can learn to sail the right way!
We offer an industry unique “Meet and Greet Fiesta” for incoming students every Saturday evening with the first night sleep over in your own private cabin aboard your training vessel, saving you a costly hotel night. Sailing School starts at 9:00 AM Sunday morning.
A well fed crew is a happy crew! We pull out all the stops with scrumptious provisions that include two nights of fresh, local, fish such as Yellowtail or Sea Bass and a separate Jumbo Shrimp night and our catamaran courses also include private chef service aboard all week!
From our late Friday afternoon finish time (2 – 3 PM – ask the other vendors their board and stop times. Our Monohull students are also welcome to sleep over Friday night), to our amazing “apres-sailing” activities on board each boat such as ocean kayaking, snorkeling and use of our all new fleet of S.U.P boards.
We offer a complete package for a “Vacation with a Certification”.
At Go Baja Sailing, we’re your premier destination for all things nautical in The Sea of Cortez, Baja, Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, and beyond. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a first-time explorer, we have the perfect seafaring experience for you.
We have a team of the most amazing, experienced, passionate, sailing school instructors and a fantastic fleet of company owned, cruising sailboats (not charter boats). We also have all federally required permits and wristbands to legally explore and train in Mexican Federally protected waters around Isla Espiritu Santo and the beautiful, renowned, Balandra Bay. Your course will never be at risk of cancellation by federal park rangers!
At Go Baja Sailing we are fully vested as a local, La Paz business since 2010 with a complete sailing base office and local staff located in the exclusive Costa Baja Marina within the 5-star Puerta Cortes resort, the gateway to sailing the Sea of Cortez.
For those who need to stay in communication while at sea, we offer high speed “Starlink” satellite WIFI aboard our training vessels. Whether you choose our DuFour or Jeanneau Monohulls or our Fountaine Pajot or Lagoon Catamarans for group or private courses, we have everything it takes to make your Sea of Cortez sailing dreams come true, big time.

“Thank you for an amazing experience in our ASA sailing training we took in October 2019. The whole experience was on point. I am so happy I brought my wife. She thoroughly enjoyed the one week experience. Boat, Provisions, sailing grounds and Captain John all 5 Star.”
Steve and Mary Davidson
"Quick but grateful thank you for our ASA training last year. We organized our first bareboat out of Corfu 2 weeks ago. We had the best family vaca. If I get down to La Paz again for some sailing I'll give you a shout!"
“Thanks again for organizing the group from Germany. I had to come to La Paz in August 2019. Everything worked out as expected and we came in way under budget and able to afford the 114 Catamaran course as well. Our entire group recommends Go Baja Sailing!!”
