How do I get to SailQuest Sailing School


Here is a Google Map link with directions to SailQuest from the International Airport.

The SailQuest Sailing School  is based on the eastern seaboard of Thailand, 2 hours south east of Bangkok and about 10 minutes south of Pattaya City at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club, approximately 1 kilometer past the Ambassador City Hotel, our local landmark.SailQuest Sailing School facility is located directly across from the entrance to OceanMarina Hotel.

If you are arriving at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport the easiest way to get to Ocean Marina is to take a taxi from the airport. After clearing airport customs, take a left through the doors and follow signs to the “Taxi Stand” and taxi counter. You will pay 1,500baht, up to 3 passengers, at the taxi counter for the 1.5-2 hour drive. Occasionally the driver may not be familiar with Ocean Marina. In that case, mention that we are about 1 kilometer south of the Ambassador Hotel, Thailand’s largest hotel, and they will find us with no problem.

There is also a bus and mini-van service that will save you some money, but does not operate 24 hours a day. See details here: You will also need to get from the Pattaya bus stop to your hotel by hiring a local taxi.

It is also possible to have us arrange a private car and driver to pick you up at the airport upon arrival, cost 2,000baht for up to 3 passengers. You will need to supply flight details and keep us posted of any flight changes. This charge can be added to your course cost.

SailQuest Update - Response to Corona Virus/COVID-19

As I am sure you are aware, the Corona Virus/COVID-19 is creating international travel issues. At this time, however, it is business as usual at SailQuest Sailing School and all scheduled course dates and sailing events are still running as scheduled. It is a great time of year for sailing here in the Gulf of Thailand!

To keep updated on the situation in Thailand and restrictions regarding incoming visitors,  see the Thailand Department of Disease Control website. Travelers should also be aware of any warnings or restrictions that may be posted in the country you will return to following your SailQuest dates.

This situation will certainly effect some who have already booked course or event dates or those who may be thinking of doing so. The SailQuest refund and re-schedule policy remains the same as always. If for any reason you need to cancel  your booking, we will issue a full refund of your booking deposit or full payment, minus any bank transfer fees. Or we can hold your payment and you can re-schedule to more convenient dates as your schedule allows.

We are also implementing a daily temperature check policy for instructors and students and encouraging continued good hygiene practices for all. Anyone who is not feeling well or showing symptoms… please stay home!

These are tough times for travelers and business owners alike, but we are all trying to make the best of it.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Good health and Happy Sailing!
