Skippers Courses

Ever watched enthralled as a boat is safely handled, beached
or launched in less than ideal conditions?

Have you dreamed of being able to skipper a boat on the open ocean? 
Or just want to cruise lazily on your local dam or river?

We can help you achieve those dreams!

We offer a variety of skipper’s courses to ensure you are equipped with the best training and knowledge to handle your vessel in any situation.  

Boating is a fun and exciting activity… Whether he’s on a commercial or leisure boat, a skilled skipper is key to a safe and enjoyable time on the water.  Be it launching into high energy surf, into a river, estuary, dam or the safety of a harbour.

We can assist you with training and skippers’ licenses for the river or ocean, skiing vessels, river fishing dinghies, river barges, deep sea vessels and jet skis. We are also able to assist with surf launch and dive skipper endorsements to help you achieve your dreams.

So …

If you want to potter around on the river or dam on a lazy Sunday afternoon, Our Category R course will get you there.

If you’re ready to hug the coastline, up to 1Nm (nautical mile) from shore to watch the dolphins play, then the Category E course is just what you need!

If you’re feeling more adventurous, or maybe want to take your mates fishing or diving? Or just want to grow your knowledge and skills?  Our Category C course will help you achieve your dream… This course allows you to be 15 Nm from shore – ideal for this; you’ll have your mates clamoring for more!

Category B courses give you the freedom of the open seas, up to 40Nm from shore… now you’re really playing with the big boys!  Combine your hours of experience and skill up to now, and experience the adrenaline of being out in the big blue, whether for fun or work!
