We really wanted to learn how to sail in Croatia so decided to visit Korcula especially for this sailing school.

Our instructor, Jura, was extremely chilled out and patient with us (we were very beginner) and we absolutely loved whizzing around with him.

I would say that the course was not as structured as we thought it might be - the blurb on the website gives a list of specific things you will cover. Although we learned most of it, we did have to ask e.g. please can you show me how to tie some knots?

Having said that, as complete beginners we just needed the experience and that's certainly what we got! Jura was happy to let us decide what job we wanted etc.

The manager refunded the money for the one day we couldn't go out due to weather (and it was a massive storm!)

Wish we had more days as this day was cancelled and on our last day we had hardly any wind wind (but Jura let us swim off the boat near Badija which was awesome!)

I would definitely recommend this course to others - but make sure you leave yourself time either side just in case!

On a whim we walked down and asked about kayaking and within 10 minutes the girl at the counter had us sized for life jackets and was carrying down a very sea worthy double kayak. There were several available. Note they do not have dry bags but will find you plastic bags or watch your personal items while you are out. We didn't know how long we would be out and she said "no -worries." We kayaked out a few miles past a port dodged to avoid cruise ships and a ferry to some small uninhabited islands, one of which was a dotted with nude sunbathers. We came back in a bit over 2 hours and were not charged extra. It was a good time!

We rented a kayak for two persons. The price was great, and the staff was very friendly and service minded.

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 :)

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!!!
