Enjoy Merritt Island, Florida by boat! Rent a 12' monohull - Sunfish or Force 5 for up to 2 people. The Sunfish and Force 5 are great starter boats. They are a single sail system. Renters must have basic sailing skills to rent a boat. Rates: • Full day: $95 • 3 hrs: $65 • Sailing Lessons Up to 2 people/2 hours: $200 What You Can Expect: Sailing was a natural addition to Calema after many years of being a specialty windsurfing business. We now offer Sailing lessons, rentals and camps throughout the year. In our current fleet, we have monohulls – Sunfish, Force 5 and a Vaurien. We also have multihulls – a Prindle 18, a SuperCat 17 and a Stiletto 23' Catamarans. If you just want to relax and let Calema do the sailing, we also offer sailing “tours” of the river on your choice of boats. Larger groups can choose our Stiletto Catamaran (up to 5 average size adults plus the 'Captain'). If you want to be hands on, we’ll teach you the basics and then guide you through step by step. Kids can learn to sail in our Summer Sailing Kid’s Camps taught each week during school break. If they want to do more than just sailing, we also offer our Watersports Camps which include Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking and SUP. Already an experienced sailor, then it only takes a brief “checkout” with one of our Calema staff the first time you rent and then you are ready to go on any subsequent rental days throughout the year.

We trace our roots to the mid seventies, when Tinho Dornellas began working as a fiberglass composites fabricator in the Portuguese navy. A long time surfer, Tinho spent his spare time shaping kayaks, surf boards and the first surf ski with John Byde, (who was the son of the man who now holds the patent). Tinho's early surfboards all bear the original Calema "3 wave" emblem. A few year later in 1978, Tinho tried windsurfing for the first time and was hooked. He moved to Brazil and eventually to Mexico working for Club Med. In June of 1981, Susie traveled to Cancun and Tinho was her windsurfing instructor ... the rest is the history. Calema now offers Instruction, Rental and a Pro-Shop for Windsurfing, Sailing, Kayaking and SUP (Stand-Up Paddling). We teach all ages. We also offer Clinics and Summer Kids Camps as well as tours.
