Sailway was founded in 2005 as a promoter of nautical activities on the “Ría de Vigo” (Rías Baixas in Galicia). Its founders are ardent sea worshippers and began this project with the prime objective of bringing the sea closer to everyone whose desire it is to experience it, whilst teaching them how to enjoy it safely and respecting the local environment. Our base port is located in Vigo City Centre, which offers a wide range of amenities within easy reach. The navigation area of the “Rías Baixas” is a privileged stretch of calm waters where you can sail safely all year round. The highlight of this location is its incomparable beauty of the landscape and the majesty of the Cíes Islands (Maritime-Terrestrial National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia).
Our commitment; Our team are committed to the undertaking of the continuous development and improvement of services in order to meet our customer’s needs. We have been certified in ISO9001 as a Quality Management System and with the SICTED as a Quality System in Tourist Destinations. At Sailway, we enjoy the sea, which is why our commitment to our clients goes beyond just a service, we want to fulfil individual expectations and provide the most rewarding and enjoyable sailing holidays on board our fleet whilst learning at our sailing school.
Our method; At Sailway you can start your nautical learning journey without previous knowledge or experience on board a boat. At our «Sailway Academy» experience is unnecessary because we will show you the joys of the sea and how to best enjoy this nautical sport. We have developed a choice of training programs where we will teach you how to navigate on a sailing boat, gain confidence and resolve any issues you may feel or experience at sea. The next step in your training will be to have the opportunity to obtain a nautical qualification at our XGEN042 approved school endorsed by Xunta de Galicia and take official sailing training practices on the Sailway fleet which offers a wide range of calendar dates to choose from. To conclude your training: the following step would be to rent a sailboat or motorboat with your family or friends to live the experience independently. If you your passion and dreams of sailing grows, then the final step to complete your training may be the decision to purchase your own sailboat.
Be the navigator of your own story!
