Private Boat & / or PWC Licence Courses
A private course can be arranged either at one of our own training venues or at your home, office or club. The below amounts are for boat licence only. This would include both the theory and practical training.


Custom Lessons
Our one day boat licence course is a basic training course; you may feel once you've done the course that you would like some extra practical experience. Maybe our training vessel is very different to your boat or you have done the course but other members of your family will benefit from some extra training. You may have obtained your licence without doing any practical training. Perhaps you would like to learn on our boat without scratching your own! Private tuition on your own, or our vessel, is the next logical step - call us for lessons designed totally to your requirements.


First Aid Courses & CPR
All boaties should have a knowledge of first aid.
