Owner description: The home slips for ECY's sailing vessels is at Sabine Marina on Little Sabine Bay, in the heart of Pensacola Beach Florida--walking distance from great restaurants, beaches and shops along the boardwalk. We would enjoy giving you a tour of our vessels or discussing the charts of our sailing waters to help you prepare for a sailing class, bareboat or captained charter, but please call before stopping by to make sure we are available to greet you... we like to be out enjoying tye-dyed sunsets, emerald green waters and sugar white beaches of the emerald coast as much as possible!

This was my third time sailing with Emerald Coast. The first time was to take the 101, 103, and 104 classes to get my bareboat certification. The last two trips were 5 day charters with my wife and three young children and with longtime friends. From the instruction to the charter, Emerald Coast goes above and beyond to ensure you...

What a trip that was! From the extraordinary hospitality from Peggy and Rick, to the amazing boat, I couldn't be more impressed with this operation. We sailed from Pensacola Beach to Orange Beach, AL and back over 3 days, had a fantastic time, and we owe it all to the guidance and recommendations provided by ECY. The boat was in... More

Just got back from a 4 day sailing trip with my longtime college buddies, and what a great experience. It was my first time sailing, and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the accommodations were on the "Ray Sea Lady". The boat was in excellent condition and suited our needs perfectly. The Emerald Coast was a beautiful area to... More

My husband and I shopped around for a sailing school- up and down the east coast - and selected ECY. We are so fortunate to have found it! All of the planning was smooth and easy- but, more than that, the actual week-long course was just perfect! We completed ASA 103 and 104 as the only students living aboard a... More

Thank you for your kind comments! Capt Ralph had a great time sailing with you two, too! We look forward to welcoming you back for a bareboat charter -- now that you are qualified, its time to celebrate with a cruise on your own! We will help you find some great places to anchor out or to pull in for... More

I chartered the Sea Fever for a half day sail on Pensacola Bay. With three friends who never sailed before, including a 9 year old, I was curious to see how they would do. Captain Ralph, a retired businessman, made them feel comfortable and safe. Sailing in the Pensacola area was beautiful and there was plenty of wind so we... More

I recently returned from a sailing class with ECY's, but have chartered and been a student for several classes over the last 6 years. They have taken me from being a novice on the water, to planning a charter from Miami to the Bahamas. And have done so, in a safe and fun environment. I have chartered weekend trips with... More

Thank you Bruce! We really enjoyed the trip east with you, Jason, and Steve -- you all spoiled Capt Rick rotten with how much you learned and how much he enjoyed his time with you. And your pictures are fantastic! As always, we look forward to welcoming you back aboard -- and now you are qualified to really take our... More

Emerald Coast Yachts sailing school is so much fun! We spent 3 fun filled days with Captain Ralph learning to Sail (and enjoying his many adventure stories). After years on power boats, I must say I fell in love with Sailing. Peggy and Rick were so helpful and responded to all of our needs. We are looking forward to a... More

My wife and I took ECY's sailing courses ASA 101 and 103 to work towards our bareboat certification. We spent several days on the water with Captain Drew, who is very knowledgeable and professional. Even though I have many years of sailing experience with different types of boats, there was still much I learned from Drew and Peggy (who taught... More

For a smaller, family operated charter company - they are among the best. Customer service is clearly their strong suit and that is what keeps us coming back again and again. While their boats are not as pristine as those from the major charterers, they are well maintained, clean and well provisioned. I have bareboat chartered with them three times... More

We live close to Pensacola Beach, so we go there often. We love it here - so beautiful and friendly with terrific restaurants and great places to stay. Very family friendly, but still with some great adult night spots. We love to vacation in our "own backyard". After seeing sailboats going by for years, we finally decided to give it... More
