Why choose Discover Sailing Asia (DSA)?
Unlike your typical boat rentals, DSA prides itself of it's ability to create a one-of-a-kind experience by providing both moments of relaxation and learning opportunities. Our skippers provides newcomers a first-hand experience of learning how to navigate the winds and manage the ropes while still leaving room for moments of serene and peace on calm waters.
What do I need to bring?
Apart from provisions and comfortable clothes, we recommend you bring sunglasses/sunblock to protect your skin. You can bring a change of clothes to wash up at the end of the day if you wish.
How many Cabins are there?

Sometimes guests choose to sleep under the stars on the deck as well or bring a hammock to tie on the boat.
