What separates us from our competitors

The biggest, oldest, most expensive, OR least expensive isn’t necessarily the best. We purposely have a smaller, more exclusive fleet. We won’t accept just any boat. BPY vessels are professionally maintained and have the best reputation versus our competitors (in terms of maintenance AND quality).

Each of our vessels are given the proper time and attention to ensure they are well taken care of and most importantly, safe. Our staff to vessel ratio is the best in the marina. We also don’t rush our students in short, compact classes. We ensure our students are provided with the necessary time to practice and develop their skillset.

We aren’t just looking to just make a profit by sending as many students as possible through our ASA classes as quickly as possible. And on the opposite end, we also won’t over sell you by making you purchase large class and/or charter packages up front that you don’t necessarily need or will use.

In order to become a skilled sailor, we provide our students with the proper water time and instruction time. Our quality of USCG licensed captains and instructors is unbeatable as well. In addition to not accepting just any boat, we won’t accept just any instructor.

What’s more, our BPY staff is known for providing the best customer service experience in the marina. Blue Pacific Yachting will provide you with a top level/premier experience. Come see why BPY is the only ASA school in Marina del Rey with a top, 5-star Yelp score.
