Good morning, you have just woken up on a luxurious catamaran anchored in a secluded bay.

Stretching and bending to the warming sun and open your eyes to a nutritious breakfast. Slip into the sea for your first swim of the day before we sail away into the next paradise destination.

RYA Captain, Ocean Citizen and Founder of Making Waves Sailing. “My goal is to inspire a deeper appreciation of our water world to create heightened awareness by connecting people to the ocean. It’s my hope that by offering others an opportunity to further explore our oceans, they will join me in my quest to both learn about and safeguard them.”

As a coach and instructor, I feel the purpose of my knowledge is to help others navigate a path to wellness using the 8 limbs of yoga as a guide.”
Captain Michele’s passion for sailing began more than 40 years, as a child. Last year alone in 2016, he sailed over 8000 nautical miles. Michele’s attention to detail and experience make him a sailing guru. He is truly at one with the ocean, both sailing on the water and under the water.
The itinerary and sailing schedule is determined by comfort and safety. The Captain makes the final decision. Please note that we are always in a cozy anchorage with plenty of time to swim, snorkel, hit the beach and enjoy the sunset. At this time of the year we expect calm seas and sunny weather most of the day with occasional, brief showers typical of this tropical region.
