The City of Orange Beach Wind & Water Learning Center is committed to enhancing our community by providing coastal access, facilities, equipment, and education for sailing and paddling sports. We accommodate people of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds. Our current offerings include youth Sail Camp, kayaking classes, and kayak fishing classes. Through the variety of classes the Center hosts, residents and visitors can explore our scenic back bays. The Wind & Water Learning Center is an active member of US Sailing and an affiliate of the American Canoe Association, following many of their accredited classes and guidelines.
American Canoe Association Certified Instructors offer various levels of education from an introductory "Quickstart Your Kayak" class to Instructor Development Workshops and Certification Exams.
US Sailing Certified, Small Boat Sailing Instructors guide youth on week long courses on Optimist Prams and Sunfish Sailboats to "Learn Sailing, the Right Way."
Our Kayak Fishing Guide is one of the best in our area and something to share with everyone from the novice fisherman to experienced angler.
Full Moon Paddle Events are hosted at the facility on a monthly basis during the season as a catered social event with live music, all to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
We hope we get a chance to see you on the water!
