S.A.L.T Victoria

Sail and Life Training out of Victoria, B.C.
I'm considering sending my kids out with these guys over spring break.
From what I gather so far it seem like a good program.
Anyone have first hand experience with these guys?

Not first hand, but have had a couple of friends send their kids in years past.. nothing but good reviews from both parents and participants.

I believe they offer both coastal and offshore (generally Hawaii) opportunities. We see them on occasion each summer.

The Calgary Board of Education has approved the program for their students. Their safety standards is very tough. I was on the team that approved their program. They have a Christian orientation but do not proselytize.
