“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We had a great experience at the oreb sailing & windsurfing school. Miro was very patient and friendly. All the teachers are passionate and fun loving.
We originally booked a trip around a couple of islands and ended up actively participating in the sailing, learning tips along the way. Thank you for a great day out! We would for sure recommend this place :)

“Friendly and very knowledgable staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

I spent the summer in Korcula and learned to sail and windsurf with the awesome instructors at Oreb Club. They make everything fun, you learn a ton, and they truly care about your safety. Their prices are very reasonable. Korcula is an amazingly beautiful area to learn to sail and the conditions are often quite good. Love this spot!!!

“Awesome sailing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

While on Korcula(Korkyra) I was looking for some place to relax and to learn something.
I heard some people talking about some sailing center where I thought I could find everything what I need. It really was like that. Firstly we booked half day sailing trip and found out that around Korkyra there are so many little islands that you can explore. So we decided to book sailing school that lasts for 7 days (4 hours a day) what makes it 28 hours in total. We were not really lucky with wind (we had 2 days of no wind) but our skipper just got things to do so that we didn't even feel lack of wind. All in all learning how to sail and seeing a lot of beautiful things made my trip to Korcula and Oreb Sailing school even better. Would defenetly recomend. See you next year @ Oreb Sailing and Windsurfing school!

“hands off! more or less ridicolous ..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

27th aug. 2013 1220.
arranged date for our 14 years old for windsurfing lessons. when arriving the "manager" told us that the conditions are "too bad". after asking about the special conditions ( reviewer holds a C patent with 25 years of sailing and motor experience as well as windsurfing certificate since 1977) he told us that the "national institute" has giben warnings. this while the split met-and hydroservice said wind 2, 6 to 14 kts diminishing during the afternoon. than he told us, that one hour a day is the maximum for windsurfing courses. when i remarked that i do not wat a fun course for my daughter but a professional service it ended with us leaving.
as OREB is the only school in the area i swallowed my anger coming back to start again as it is our daughter last holiday week.
the manager started (after zaving us waiting for 25 minutes) with a monologue about the certificates and his 18 years long experience and how i dare to critisize an institute which is .blablabla.. i asked him how he could expect me viewing him as a professional when he gives weong weather informations. i asked him for the "institute" wherefrom he had his forcast what he could not answer.
meanwhile they had to send away a german pupil of the school because of calms and the conditions had changed to sunny and blue skies, 25 deg. celsius!! very dangerous.
the manager who meanwhile after beeing asked if he were the owner had himself named owner got a visit by someone who named himself the real owner starting with the same sermon of how very successful they have been operating that sailing school what i interrupted saying that i am not interested in monolouges. they have been 5 persons meanwhile and i left laughing.
if you want professional service, keep on searching.
they were not even able to produce a correct weatherforecast !! a sailing school. even while the aci marina is not morethan 200 meters away and got every information they insisted of different services!! for weather forecasts!!

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We hired 2 kayaks for one hour - that was sufficient for us. We just kayaked gently around, admiring the view, staying out of the way of ferries and other boats, but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were helpful and friendly.
