My knowledge was extremely limited before doing the course and now I feel safe and confident enough to get out on the water. Great work 😀read more

I have driven friends boats from tinnies to large Rivieras. But i have remained scared. Tomorrow i get to drive my own tinnie for the first time and i have been so nervous for 25 years since i wanted a boat. Of course a morning on the water doesn't beat years of actual experience, but we all have to start somewhere. Mike is seriously engaged in getting everyone on the water with the skills, confidence and knowledge to do it safely. The practical course was very enjoyable. Mike is extremely affable. It was what i learnt from Mike in that morning that has given me the confidence to get out there on my own.read more
