My personal comment and commitment to you

Having started sailing at around 23 years old I have now logged more than 25,000 sailing miles not only recreationally, but also as a sailing instructor, delivery and charter captain on both coasts of the United States, several passages to/from Cuba and the Bahamas. I've also completed a number of passages through the ICW between Florida and Maine in addition to Gulf of Mexico crossings. Of the 25,000+ nautical miles sailed, roughly 10,000 have been offshore sailing making my experience perfect for teaching sailing in The Florida Keys. I've skippered countless boat types and styles, so picking my favorite is tough. Some have been as old as my grandmother, some have been so new that they were just delivered from the factory. Some have been the size of your bathtub, and others were straight out of yachting magazines. I've sailed them all...catamarans, trimarans, monohulls and all the unique ones in between! Each boat handles differently and has qualities that I like. For charte

Tyler was terrific, as was the boat from Bluesail/NauticEd. Tyler was an excellent teacher, very affable, extremely competent and a genuine pleasure to sail with for those two very long days and evenings on the water. WOULD RECOMMEND!! My only (very small) disappointment was that the boat was not equipped to fly a spinnaker.

an outstanding teacher, professional, knowledgeable and thorough. His sailing skills are far above the normal teacher, but he communicates it in such an easy smooth style that everyone from beginner to expert gets it easily and enjoyably. We used a different boat from another charter company and it was less that the normal conditions from Bluesail, however he methodically evaluated the shortcomings and we corrected all the necessary issues, but clearly not up to his standards. but we made the most of it and had a great day! AWESOME Instructor and sailor!

Tyler is an absolutely fantastic instructor. I could not have imagined how much I would learn from spending five days with him on the water. Tyler has a way of sharing his wealth of knowledge in situations where it's immediately applicable, which makes the learning experience so much more effective. I had taken ASA101-106 before, but a week with Tyler has added so much to my understanding of the theory, my ability to apply it in practice, and to my confidence on the water. Thank you Tyler for everything!!!

Tyler was a top notch captain and instructor. He always took the time to explain the intricacies of sailing and displayed patience when we ask questions. The best part is Tyler made the whole learning experience feel like a vacation, which at the end of the trip I had an awesome story to share and felt more confident about my sailing ability.
