Sailing Conditions / Safety: Cabarete is situated in a windy bay with a protective reef about 3/4 of a mile offshore. It is an exciting place to sail with side shore winds averaging 15-25 knots during the afternoon hours. In the morning beginners will find lighter winds. On the reef, you’ll find small waves in summer and larger waves in winter.
You will be briefed on the local sailing conditions and safety measures when you arrive at the center. We have a boat for emergency rescues only.
