All our courses are delivered by our partner company Edinburgh Marine Academy.
Children who prefer engine power to paddle or wind power should have a go at our Junior or Youth Powerboating courses. It’s an exhilarating way to ride the waves which is open to children as young as eight, and ideal for thrill-seekers.
Our powerboat courses take you from the basics of low speed skills and manoeuvres to high speed adventures! We have specialist junior powerboats which are perfect for completing the RYA’s National Powerboat Scheme. From the core skills of Level 1 to the internationally recognised Level 2, we’ll teach you how to become a safe and responsible driver.
