Sailing was a natural addition to Calema after many years of being a specialty windsurfing business. We now offer Sailing lessons, rentals and camps throughout the year. In our current fleet, we have monohulls – Sunfish, Force 5 and Vaurien and multihulls – a Prindle 18 & Supercat 17 Catamarans and “Ataroa II”, our 23′ Catamaran. “Ataroa” means “Big Smile” and we are sure that your sailing experience at Calema will bring a smile to your face.

Sailing Tours

If you just want to relax and let Calema do the sailing, we also offer sailing “tours” of the river on your choice of our Vaurien, a Prindle 18′ or Supercat 17′ catamaran or for a larger group, our Stiletto Catamaran. If you want to be hands on, we’ll teach you the basics and then guide you through step by step.

Visit our Rentals Page for more info on kayaks, stand up paddle boards, sailboats and windsurf boards today!

Kids Sailing Camps

Kids can learn to sail in our Summer Sailing Kid’s Camps taught each week during Summer break.  They have hands on experience on multiple boats, learning all the basics of sailing.  We also teach ‘man-overboard’ and ‘capsize’ drills – campers favorites!   If they want to do more than just sailing, we also offer our Watersports Camps which include Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking and SUP – along with an island adventure.

Sailing Rentals

Already an experienced sailor, then it only takes a brief “checkout” with one of our Calema staff the first time you rent and then you are ready to go on any subsequent rental days throughout the year.
We even offer a “Frequent Flyer” card for Sailing, which can be combined with rentals of Windsurfing, Sailing, SUP and kayaking. You just show up (or call ahead) and we can have your gear waiting for you. We just mark off your card and you are off enjoying your day.
Calema occasionally has boats for sale, so just ask Tinho and he’ll let you know what is available.
