Our great passion: the sea and teaching

The key to training, especially in nautical schools, is the trainers and the location. The Nautical School Julio Verne Nautica puts at your disposal the best training scenario of the Iberian Peninsula: the Rías Baixas. Train yourself in all navigation scenes and enjoy in safety when sailing alone.
