Thanks Michael for the day, I enjoyed the experience very much. Loved the setting and the calm piece of river to do the test in seeing the Dolphins alongside was a big bonus. If I had a chance to change anything I don’t think I would.

It was a pleasure working with you on the Skippers Ticket exam today. Your approach to the tasks and interface with me was nothing but professional from start to finish. The whole time during the test both theoretical and practical was done without stress and was carried out to what I believe was a very high standard.
Thank you and I will certainly be referring people to you in the future, great job

Hi Mike

Thanks for taking us through the theory and practical aspects of skippering a boat. Your instruction was clear, unambiguous and patient when we had queries.
On the water you demonstrated how to take charge of a vessel and emphasised how to ensure the safety of passengers at all times. Even for the inexperienced among us.
All of this was done with good humour. And we all passed!!
Your emphasis on reading the manual thoroughly helped a lot before we even got to your door so this was a helpful tip.
Thanks again.

Hi Mike, Thank you very much for a most enjoyable morning, straight from the outset we found you to be a very pleasant and easy going person. You made the morning an enjoyable experience whilst learning a lot of things which weren’t actually in the book ie, additional floation devices, simplified ways of launching a boat and to think outside the box a little. I’d also like to thank you for taking a little extra time putting my sister at ease as she was extremely nervous. We would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to obtain a Skippers Ticket. Many Thanks

I booked with Mike at Sea Safe for a surprise birthday present for my husband. From the phone call of booking to the end of the test, Mike was very helpful, professional and most of all very friendly and great with our 2 girls. Thank you for a fab day and even better, seeing the Dolphins made it extra special. Definitely recommend and thank you.

Thanks Mike,

All of us had a great day and your tips were fantastic. Your patience with myself and Keely, neither of whom had driven a boat, was much appreciated! Should you take up giving driving lessons, we would happily send Keely your way, otherwise, I guess we’ll catch up in a couple of years once Sarah is old enough to get her ticket. We felt in safe hands from the moment we made the booking to finishing the course! Even better, the great day on the river has motivated Jason to get working on fixing his boat! Thanks Again

Thanks Michael, I was nervous to start with but you made me feel at ease and came out feeling very confident. Your instruction was easy to understand and we enjoyed getting our ticket. Definitely will recommend you to anyone who needs to get their skippers ticket

Thanks Mike for a professional and thorough instruction for my skippers ticket. I would highly recommend you to anyone that needs to be assessed or trained in all aspects of boating. 10 out of 10.

Hi Mike

Just a couple words regarding my skippers ticket I obtain from you.
As a novice it was a bit daunting not knowing what to expect when I enroll at Sea Safe Boat School it changed when I start working threw the theory and the self test questions.
On the day of the theory and practical test I was blown away with the passion you have regarding boat safety in general, it shows even more threw your explanations, skills and your knowledge.
With this quality of training I will re-comment any one from novice to advance training in boat safety to Sea Safe Boat School.

Well done I wish you all the best for the future.
See you on the water.

Hello Mike,

Thank you for your time this morning to allow me to gain my recreational skippers ticket.

I found the way you ran through the procedures and correct ways of doing tasks extremely easy and gratifying, every task was in lamens terms and it was an absolute pleasure having you as my instructor.

Thank you for the additional safety tips on flotation, life vests, bimini’s, wind etc. You were extremely thorough in your approach and I certainly walked away with a lot more than I thought I would.

I would not hesitate to refer you to anyone in the future should they be looking to gain their RST.

Thanks again and have a safe weekend. Happy boating!
