First of all its an amazing experince and the team are great , the sail it self was super fun and this is was one of the best days on our trip.
I would to give a few tips for those who want to do this sail , the boat itself is very simple to handle as long you have a basic understaings of sailing, if not arrive early and take the course.
The sailboat is a small catamaren . it means that in order to change tacks you need to be fast with good wind or just turn downwind. it is advice to know that you would usually leave on high tide and return in low tide .. so you may meet some rocks on your way back , build a coure for the return in your mind and pay attention to the beach and mountain at the back to better plan your return or use a simple GPS, there is a red flag that points the best route in and out , it hard to spot from distance so take reffrence to the overall beach view.

the wind is good untill 1500 in march april and you should ask on the wind once you start your sail to better plan your time , the boat is 3-6 Knots so plan according to 4 knots speed.

also ask untill when the service boat is availbale , as in low tide the service boat may be grounded on the beach.

i hope it will help you to plan and prepare for the sail in a fun and safe way and enjoy this amazing experience.

what a great day sailing around the islands of the bukit bay. Wind was great, lagoons incredible, the boat is perfect to sail in this place. you can get to many spot where nobody's here and finish the
day with an amazing sunset. Moreover, Oswenn and Amandine are very welcoming and thrustfully people. They are never far if something goes wrong. Sailing here is the best option to visit the island!

One of the best things you can do near El Nido. Individual experience instead of the crowded tours. We have done an introduction to sailing (none of us sailed before!) in the morning near the Corong Corong beach with the sailing instructor and in the afternoon we were already sailing by ourselves to surrounding Islands (Spots from tour B).I really recommend this activity for people who are up to have a little adventure! The staff was very friendly and we got a phone in any case of emergency.

El Nido Sailing propose catamaran sailing lesson on the beautiful Corong Corong beach close to El Nido. They also rent their small catamarans per hour or per day, and propose even a "Survivor Trip". We (a couple) had a one hour lesson with the french owner who is a very good teacher. Then we could sail by ourself in the bay while he was observing us from the beach, so we felt very secure. We really enjoyed this experience and only regret we didn't stay longer in El Nido to do more! We highly recommend it, for anyone with or without sailing experience!
