Fantastic sailing school! Alexei was kind enough to put his boat in the water early for a birthday surprise! He was accommodating, always quick to reply and gave great instructions. I did a two hour lesson. On the day, he was a great teacher. You really felt involved and not just in a tour. We learned how to unfurl the sails, how to catch the wind and how to steer. This was a really cool adventure! Perfect for couple or small group. Toronto is so beautiful from the water, and Alexei knows where to go for great pics. I learned a lot about sailing and would definitely go again on a longer trip!!! Thanks so much !!!!

Introduction Sailing class was great, very informative! Alexei is really professional, organized, excellent instructor. During two hours he can give all details and a lot of important information about sailing. I would highly recommended to take the course in Great Lakes Sailing School! Thank you Alexei for the great teaching!

First time sailing. We (four of us) took an "Introduction to sailing" class with Alexei & we had a blast. Everything was very well organized including booking, transportation & Alexei taught a class in a very easy & understandable manner. Very patient instructor. We almost asked him more then 50 questions and he answered all our questions when we were sailing. Now we know what is the different between 100% and 150% Head Sail. Great times with a cool and relaxed teacher. Very interesting, informative (before sailing, Alexei thought us how safe to get in and off the sail, how to control ourselves when standing on the deck. Before we start sailing he went through the check list with us for safety, equipment and emergencies, Radio, ridged knife, hand pump and many more other things. I wish I could take a picture of the check list (left my phone in the car). Very impressed with this sailing school. Will be signing up for more programs in the near future and definitely recommend to everyone. Thank you Alexei for great memories!

I took the "Introduction to sailing" class for my wife and myself using the great promotion rate the school was offering. My wife was scared to step on any kind of boats since her childhood time due to an accident she had. Looks like her fears almost vanished. Thanks to Alexei’s kind and delicate manners and hospitality combined with solid confidence and knowledge of the subject. It was interesting experience, new knowledge and fun for all of us. Many thanks Alexei!
