Overview

The home slips for ECSailing 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!
