Our classic teen sailing camps offer diving options, too
Have you ever snorkeled at night? A bioluminescent fantasyland awaits you at our teen sailing camps in the British Virgin Islands, courtesy of thousands of miniscule single-celled algae. Just wave your arms quickly and the water comes alive from a chemical reaction inside these amazing living lights. There aren't many land creatures that have this ability (a firefly is one), but the warm Caribbean waters are teeming with a huge variety of glow in the darks!
The Bravo programs are Sail Caribbean's traditional BVI sailing, scuba and watersports camps. Try Scuba for the first time with an introductory Discover Scuba Diver course, or get fully certified earning your PADI Open Water Diver. Once certified, you can continue your dive education with Advanced Open Water, dive specialties, or just dive for fun. Not interested in diving? Then opt out of scuba altogether and enjoy the spectacular underwater world by snorkel and mask! Learn to windsurf or wakeboard, attend marine biology seminars, or take the ASA Basic Keelboat course - it's up to you. No previous sailing, scuba or watersports experience is necessary for these twenty one-day programs that include 5-8 hours of community service.
On Bravo sailing adventures, we'll travel to the most famous locations in the British Virgin Islands, as well as some quiet hideaways where you'll see a side of the islands that only the locals know. Starting at our home base in Tortola, we sail three to four hours a day to a variety of marinas and anchorages. The days include sailing instruction, scuba instruction (if you opt for scuba as a part of your program) and plenty of high-energy watersports, beach activities, and island exploration. You'll dance with stilt walkers at our Fireball Party at Trellis Bay, sail Hobiecats at the Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda, and explore the enormous boulders at the Baths, one of the most extraordinary natural wonders you'll find anywhere.

Learning feels natural and easy at Sail Caribbean's teen sailing camps. Everyday our Bravo staff teach you the art of sailing as you develop your skills in idyllic conditions. Together with your crewmates, you'll learn by doing, and you'll be sailing with confidence before you know it. Our staff will guide you with enthusiasm, sharing their knowledge and skills so that you can learn successfully at your own pace without pressure. Living aboard a 50-foot sailboat means you're living in an environment where participation and cooperation are essential. You'll learn the true meaning of teamwork. More about learning
How blue can blue water be? Sail Caribbean water is so blue you can't wait to jump in and try every watersport we've got. Of all our programs, Bravo teen sailing camps offer the widest array of activities and devotes the most time to watersports. Learn to windsurf, explore the coast in a kayak, or even take a thrilling ride on a wakeboard or tube. Apply your new sailing skills on a Hobie Cat or Laser, or grab your snorkel, mask, and fins and get a dazzling look at the colorful fish and reefs. You'll also give a little back to the islands, and grow in the process, by working with local youth and restoring a beach to its natural beauty. See all the activities you can do
If you're determined to challenge yourself even further, our Bravo programs offer a variety of optional courses including US Sailing Basic Keelboat Certification and several scuba options.

Some courses have prerequisites and require a significant time commitment during the program, and some have limited enrollment. Theres's plenty to do on Bravo programs, but if you're looking for more, our optional courses let you shape the program experience to fit your own unique goals. Learn more about optional courses
