SailQuest Youth Sailing Program

Transportation, Meals & Accommodation

The SailQuest Youth Sailing Program is an inclusive course where all logistical details and services are included in the course cost. All participants will need to do is to schedule and book course dates and air travel or arrange another group meeting point within Thailand and SailQuest will take it from there. See details below.


Transportation to & from the SailQuest Sailing School base

Once you have confirmed your course dates and booked flights to Thailand, or arranged another pick up point for your group anywhere within a 3 hour drive from our location, provide details and the SailQuest V.I.P. mini-van service will be standing by to deliver your group to our world-class Ocean Marina base just minutes south of Thailand's largest tourist destination in Pattaya, Thailand.

It is preferred to plan arrival times at the pick-up point between 10:00am and 4:00pm on the day before the first class day. On arrival students attend an orientation briefing, get set up in the onshore accommodation and attend the "Welcome Aboard Dinner Party".

Return SailQuest V.I.P. mini-van service is also included in the course cost, scheduled for the morning following the last class day.


Included Meals, Food & Beverages

From the first "Welcome Aboard Dinner Party" on the evening before the first class day to breakfast on the morning following the last class day, all meals and beverages, both ashore and on board the training yachts, are included in the course cost.

While onshore in Ocean Marina, the well-managed and conveniently located "Lake House Restaurant" provides a set menu for breakfast and lunch including Thai and Western food options. Evening meals hosted by the "Lake House Restaurant" are Thai-Style buffet dinner party events attended by students, instructors and sailing school staff and also include sailing lessons, course review and sailing song fun. The "Lake House Restaurant" also provides free internet WiFi service.

All meals are also included aboard the training yachts during the live-aboard portions of the course. Breakfasts include cereals, rice soup, fresh fruit and juice. Lunches are ramen soup, fresh fruit and snacks. Wholesome and hearty dinners are prepared aboard including pasta dishes and Thai curries.

On the last night of the live-aboard voyage students, instructors and sailing school staff go ashore to a beachfront Thai seafood restaurant. This unforgettable dining experience is always a highlight of the sailing program!

An unlimited amount of bottled drinking water is provided in the accommodation and aboard the training yachts.

Students may also bring along any additional food, snacks or beverages. Any special dietary requirements should be reported to SailQuest when booking your course dates.


Included Accommodation

From the evening before the first class day to the morning following the last class day accommodation is included in the course cost.

SailQuest Bungalow/Campsite: SailQuest Sailing School manages a 2 bed room 1 bathroom bungalow and campsite on the Ocean Marina property, fully equipped with air-con, refrigerator, toilet facilities, and all necessary supplies. Powered and fan-cooled 2-4 person camping tents are set up on the lakeside just outside the bungalow for larger groups. This is ideal accommodation for youth groups, convenient to the restaurant, mini-mart, SailQuest class room and training yacht, all located on the Ocean Marina property.

See bungalow/campsite details here: SailQuest Ocean Marina Bungalow and Campsite

SailQuest Guesthouse & Student Lounge: Just across the (busy) road from the Ocean Marina property, SailQuest Sailing School also operates a 4 bedroom guesthouse facility. This facility sleeps up to 16 people in both fan and air-con rooms. Each 2 rooms share a bathroom. The guesthouse includes a student lounge and private bar, WiFi and entertainment center. This option can be reserved for older groups, or if the bungalow/campsite is not your preferred option.

Upgraded Accommodation Options

In some cases, groups may wish to upgrade from the basic included SailQuest accomodation. There are many excellent accommodation options located within easy walking distance of the SailQuest Sailing School/Ocean Marina location. SailQuest will reduce the course cost by 2,000THB for the 5 day course or 4,000THB for the 10 day course per person when you provide your own accommodation.

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!
