In Business Since 1949...
Pioneered by George Castle, Castle Harbor had it's beginnings in 1949. Incorporated as Castle Harbor Boats, Inc. in 1956 it is now one of the oldest continually operating marine businesses in South Florida. The early days consisted of mostly recreational sailboat rentals and casual instruction. Today, under the direction of Cai Svendsen, Castle Harbor has become a sophisticated Sailing Program for the entire community. Nestled between Fairchild Tropical Gardens and Gables Estates off Cutler Road the Matheson Hammock Park and Marina became the new home for Castle Harbor in 1998.
The foundation of Castle Harbor's program is built upon the AMERICAN SAILING ASSOCIATION Certification System that is a multi-level course of nationally recognized instructional standards for adults. Beginning at the Basic Keelboat level and continuing upwards to Coastal Navigation and Bareboat Cerftification. Along the way and in between, there are also programs for buoy racing, charter boats, youth sailing, teambuilding and ocean racing. An active Club Membership helps to support the day to day activities.
Castle Harbor's Corporate Sailing Program is our "crown jewel" and has earned the esteem of Fortune 500 clients for decades. They have found with us the perfect medium for training and building their team. Sail and sea are the ideal background for reinforcing the skills of communication, leadership and decision making.

Spent four days sailing at Castle Harbor with my MBA program in December '09. The Castle Harbor staff were awesome. I was amazed at how much I learned in such a short time. The Biscayne Bay was absolutely beautiful that time of year, and it was just an all around great experience. The class behind me also did a travel seminar with Castle Harbor and the reviews were great.
