We offer great group rates and corporate event packages as well as organized lessons for school groups (special training rates for rental over 20 hours/week). Contact us and we can work together to build a sailing program that meets the needs of your group.

Our training programs are individually tailored for each client and inline with MANTA’s National Sailing Plan following guidelines by the International Sailing Federation [ISAF], Federation Francaise de Voile [FFV] and Royal Yachting Association [RYA]. We believe ‘hands on’ instruction and practice is the best way to learn and most thorough and enjoyable learning experience, while also emphasizing safety and good seamanship.

We are located in Mui Ne Bay, an ideal location for sailing, with a gentle beach gradient, minimal beach break and protected inshore areas from the northeasterly winds.

MANTA is committed to promoting, developing, and standardizing the sport of sailing for Vietnam, broad-based to a national team. MANTA has developed Vietnam’s first National Sailing Plan and works in collaboration with Vietnam’s Olympic Committee, the National Sports University in HCMC and local schools to promote human and environmental health by encouraging people to experience the joy of sailing.

N.B. For large groups we can arrange additional activities, for example, Stand-Up-Paddling and Yoga.
