While sailing, cultural exchange and community service projects are the focus on Tango Sailing, Watersports & Cultural Exchange programs, there's more. As a reward for all your hard work, you'll spend an entire day at the Bitter End Yacht Club, a 5-star resort on Virgin Gorda, and enjoy all the watersport activities you want.
Watch from the surface as the undersea world shimmers with action. Stingrays, colorful sergeant majors, pufferfish, whooshing schools of silversides, and even the odd diving pelican make appearances.
Perfect for coastline exploration, or just paddle around with a friend.
Our instructors will have you carving gybes across the bay in no time, or at least sailing across the anchorage.
Waterskiing and more
Power up behind one of our ski boats on skis, wakeboard, kneeboard, or tube.
Small Boat Sailing
Less is more, so trade your 45’ catamaran for a sailing dinghy and get even closer to the water. Try a Laser, Hobie Cat, Vanguard 15, Hunter 216, or J-24.
Marine Research Snorkeling
You'll play an important role in preserving and sustaining the endangered ecosystems of the Caribbean at our summer community service camps. You'll learn proper skin diving (snorkeling) techniques and put your new skills to use during community service projects to protect endangered coral reefs and their colorful species. It's as exciting as it is rewarding. You'll also monitor the health of seagrass beds and collect valuable data that'll help make a difference in the ecological well-being of our planet. It's not all work—you'll still have time to enjoy spectacular coves and caves just for the fun of it!
Explore the Islands
Since Columbus, explorers have been amazed by the natural beauty and variety of the Caribbean islands – you will be too. On Tango, you'll hike through a rainforest and scale the boulders at The Baths. You'll see why the islanders cherish this part of the world and meet its unique characters, born of a melting pot of cultures. You'll chat with friendly local people, and shop for local crafts and souvenirs.
There's no shortage of opportunity to meet new people. You'll be living on a sailboat with 11 other kids your own age, who quickly become family. Most days, you'll be joined by 12 students from Tortola's Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) to learn, work and play together. During the day, you're all working together to improve the planet. As the sun goes down there could be a barbecue, we might hit a local restaurant for dinner, or dance at a beachside disco. To wrap it all up, you'll compete for honor and glory in the Sail Caribbean Olympics, a time-honored tradition that's a highlight of each voyage
