Jet Ski Licence Caloundra

Boat and Jetski Licence Training for Caloundra Locals

The town of Caloundra sits on the entrance to the tranquil waters of the beautiful 35km-long Pumicestone Passage. These peaceful waters are part of the Moreton Bay National Marine Park, and are a great place to explore, and what better way to do that, than on your own boat! However, you will need a licence first and that’s were we come in!

Excellent way to get your licence. I have had a boat licence for decades and went to get the upgrade to PWC. Although not directly related to PWC, the instructor Mike was really good at communicating in a non offensive way things I can do to correct a number of bad habits I have let creep into my on water approach. I really appreciated the extra effort taken. I highly recommend this more

I have driven friends boats from tinnies to large Rivieras. But i have remained scared. Today I got 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.......and yes, I and the tinnie survived day 1 intact !read more
