Hi Michael
Thank you again for taking me on my skippers ticket today. Your professional knowledge and the way you run your course made it a pleasure to do. I was super nerouvous before the day started but was soon very comfortable knowing I was in good hands, it was worth the 2 hour drive to get there this morning. I would highly recommend you to anyone that needs to do their ticket.
Cheers and happy boating

3 hrslent course tought by a very professional and experienced skipper. Michael was very clear and helpful with understanding what was required for a successful completion. I would definitely recommend him to others who are looking to do the course  thanks Michael

Hi Michael,

Thank you for the day it was really enjoyable. Your expert teaching really helped us. We were total novices and your patience explaining and demonstrating the intricate moves (repeatedly) and the more difficult parts of the theory really helped us. Besides that you went the extra mile after the course and gave us added tips and tricks and shared your knowledge with us. That was really appreciated, once again thank you. I will certainly recommend your school to prospective skippers.

We will give you a holler when passing you on the water (on the correct side at the correct speed).

Hi Michael thank you for today I am made up to have my skippers ticket which was all down to you. Your training was absolutely perfect you drummed it into us I would totally recommend you to anyone wanting to do the skippers test. The air conditioned classroom made all the difference and your boat was brilliant.
Thanks again Dennis Bishop     4/5/18


Hi Michael,

First of all thankyou for today everything went smooth and very well. The way the course was structured was unfaultable and next to none. The way the information and training in regards to theory and practical was delivered came in a way of ease of understanding and in no way hard of retainable which all came down to the instructors experience and knowledge.  All in all a very successful day and a big thankyou to Mike with your expertise and training I can now be a confident skipper and not just another statistic in the sea. cheers  mate

Hi Michael
Thanks for your tuition it was first class
I had a really enjoyable experience and would highly recommend your course. You obviously have years of real experience and I think that shines through.
I don’t have much to compare with but I don’t think I have any obvious changes to your format.
I must also say a big thank you for my ‘upgrade’. I doubt I could have passed without the extra tuition.
Thanks again.

Thanks heaps Mike      18/3/18


Hey there Mike,

Just want to say today was an absolute pleasure, as a complete begginer you were super clear and concise on what was to be covered prior and throughout.

I personally really appreciate the way you conduct yourself as an instructor being from a mining and defence background I have to say the leadership and encouragment you display would make any new comer at ease and have the confidence to over any concerns in marine handling.

You are a world of knowledge and to anyone thinking its beyond your reach it isnt, with an instructor like Mike, that is dilligent yet relatable you will get there.

All the best Mike and Inshallah will see you out on the waters in my husbands boat.. lol   Isabella Maddison 14-3-18

My husband John finally went for his Skippers Ticket – from the first phone call to Mike Watson @ Sea Safe through to class room and practical examinations, Mike was a professional all the way through. Took his time to make sure all his students understood and knew what they had to deliver. Would highly recommend. Whilst doing practical test we did observe others on the river who should have been in our class!!  Cheers Mike – Tight lines.

As a novice, I was absolutely crapping myself, but your tuition was spot on and put me at ease. Even when I got my knickers in a knot, your calming influence was bang on and got me there. Thoroughly, highly, totally recommend Sea Safe to anyone wanting to learn how to skipper a boat. Top stuff! Can’t wait to get out new boat now and we’ll give you a ‘hoy’ when we pass Maylands!

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.

Mike Henderson Hi mike I was very impressed with the professionalism in which you presented the course and your desire to teach your students in the correct procedures and set tasks . As we spoke of training,I do think that there should be a prerequisite the very inexperience boater would benefit greatly from a set amount of training hours ,this would give some people a lot more confidence to finish set tasks on -the practical aspect of obtaining a skippers. Ticket. Once again thank you for your time and patience which reflected your professional approach to your students I wish you well . Cheers.

Thanks for the feedback it is always good to hear from another assessor. unfortunately what you are proposing is not up to me its DOT. Stay safe and enjoy your boating. Regards Mike Watson

Thanks Michael,
Was really good to meet you and have the opportunity to complete the RST with seasafe boat school.
I found the whole booking system really easy and all the information, extra quizzes and videos really helped understanding all the knowledge and requirements of operating a boat safely as well as the being prepared for the theory and practical assessments.
The course really was paced well and the location and boat was excellent to complete the course. The section of the river is perfect to practice skills and the tuition and practice really helped to hone my skills ahead of the assessment.
Can’t recommend this enough to others. Thanks again.

Highly recommended using Sea safe boat school. Michael was professional and a great teacher. Made the theory make a lot of sense and easy to remember. The use of a small AC class room and a open forum to ask and discuss all topics before Michael felt we were compentant. Lots of other boat schools are only interested in making money. Michael genuinely was you to understand the safe method to use your boat. Cant fault the course. We went for the Gold package as we wanted the extra time in the class. 5 stars   6/2/18

Amazing day with an amazing instructor. Highly recommended. Thanks again Mike.  25/1/18


Thanks Michael I enjoyed the course and i’m glad I chose Sea Safe.

Key things for me were having the “classroom” environment allowing for you to provide all the visual prompts and examples which was helpful particularly the navigation content.

Your style was also excellent, very experienced/ knowledgable and thorough but your relaxed manner put us all at ease and gave us confidence.

Similarly the practical assessment briefing was clear and concise and again we all gained confidence from the way you instructed it.

My feedback wouldnt change anything really. I’ll recommend Sea Safe if I come across people looking to gain their stickers tkt.

Think I’m going to store my boat down at maylands so will say gday when I see you.

Thanks again

My experience with Sea Safe Boat School has been an awesome one. Mike made learning how to skipper a boat easy despite my very limited knowledge. He guides every participant from start to finish and has a real knack for explaining things in a clear and concise manner. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn how to skipper a boat safely.

Before you arrive on the training day you are provided with everything you need to know for your assessment. He is very thorough in his approach and leaves very little to chance. Thank you to Mike and Sea Safe Boat School.  14/1/18

I highly recommend Mike at Sea Safe Boat School-
I had barely knowledge of boating rules and no experience driving a boat. Prior to booking.
I received all the necessary reading books and followed his clear instructions.
Mike was clear in explaining and showing everything in the theory and practical runs and made sure all was understood, he is extremely professional and was very patient with my first boat driving experience. I passed today and gained confidence to take the wheel and will certainly keep practicing.
I chose the gold booking and would recommend in a heartbeat.

Thanks for a great day Mike. Everything was covered and you took the time to teach us what we needed to be safe on the water.It was a brilliant course



I knew nothing about boats and have hardly been on one let alone driven one prior to taking the course. The material supplied, at the time of booking, was very good. I was very nervous the day before, but on the day, Michael put us all at ease. His patience, explanations and training were second to none. It was very obvious that he had years of experience.
I would truly recommend Sea Safe Boat School to everyone.

Just completed my Recreational Skippers Ticket with Sea Safe Boat School. Booking was easy, great training facility and well priced!

He made the 5.5 hours I was there both enjoyable and worthwhile.

G’day Mike, thanks for the Skippers course today and for my Skippers ticket.  I very much enjoyed doing the course, it was interesting and fun and I would highly recommend others to do your course too.  You were very helpful, knowledgeable and professional and have a great sense of humour.  Thanks to you I learned a lot today and feel that I will be able to navigate the waters with confidence.  I think the length of the course was appropriate too.  Thanks again and Happy New Year. Corey Schravesande. 30/12/17

I had no knowledge about boats or driving one.  I received all the necessary reading information promptly.  I was quite nervous as I thought my lack of knowledge would be a set back, but Michael Watson was an incredible skipper trainer.  Very clear in explaining everything that was important and patient with my questions.  I must say the course was a great learning experience and I definitely recommend Sea Safe Boat School.
Thanks for everything Michael.
Will be looking forward to putting all this learning into continuous practice as you said, not letting the boys do it.

Really enjoyed the course Mike, personally I wouldn’t change anything, like you said if you read the workbook and want to pass the effort has to come from the student, definitely needed the hour before the test to go over things because it’s not that common for inexperienced people to understand the boat language, looking back it’s fairly easy to pass, a far as instruction and knowledge I thought you were top notch, very knowledgeable and open,

Thanks very much and I have already recommended you to friends

Hi Michael,

Sorry for the delay in response as I have been unusually busy with work.
My response to your school is first:
I have never operated a boat in my life. The time you took to explain things and go through what was required made me feel more confident on what I was doing on the water. Not only in relation to the text book stuff, but in the actual practical handling of the boat.
I found your course to be more than just pay your money and get a certificate like others offer. I was delighted to find that you are prepared to NOT pass students who don’t meet the criteria as this means you take an interest on maintaining a standard. I was also delighted that you would give a free re-training class though if you did not pass to ensure you got appropriately trained.
If there’s anything I would add to your course, I would have loved to hear more of your tales as you have lots of experience to share.
Jack Gomez 26/11/17

Good evening  Michael,

Thank you for the excellent boating course this morning. I appreciated your balance of professionalism with being able to have a joke and the sense of camaraderie that developed throughout the morning. I enjoyed the theory revision and the props that were available and practising certain components of the practical test with each other prior to jumping onboard.

On the water, I really enjoyed the practice run we were given and to get a ‘feel’ of the boat prior to the actual test. While training with the other students onboard was great so everyone could learn from each other.

All in all, I thought the training and the way the course was run was fantastic and I will be recommending your course to everyone and anyone.

Kind regards,

Thanks Michael for course.
Feedback as follows:
· Like the practical explanations of the rules and regulations which were backed up with examples. Found this really useful background and information;
· The simple aids were good (e.g. magnetic boats, buoy markings etc);
· For the practical the boat was good and easy to learn on;
· The location for the testing is also good to learn approach dock and leaving dock;
· Practical explanation of what to do on the boat very good;
· I found the material sent out before hand very useful as well including video.
It would be difficult to improve how the course was run because it was run like Singer sewing machine.
The only area would suggest if the class room could be a bit bigger, it is very cosy, but also understand that this could be difficult to arrange.

I was visiting Perth from the UK on a three month visa and my children booked the Gold course for my birthday, I opted for the option of extra tuition on handling the boat as I had not driven a boat for many years. I could not have asked for a better instructor, Michael was brilliant and made me feel at ease. The course was professional from start to finish, the study information I received prior to the course was excellent and the tuition and guidance throughout was first class. I would highly recommend Sea Safe Boat School.  9/11/17

I decided to sit my skippers ticket and found Sea Safe Boat School on Google. Being quite nearby, my friends and I booked in to do the silver course. We all did our pre-home work and found the course and examination process really good. Mike’s teaching style is very natural and we all passed. Would recommend them again!
Hey Mike,
 I really enjoyed the course, your website was very clear about the different levels of package and what they involve. The email with the dvd link explained the need to do lots of home work and it paid off.
The practical was a little daughing at first but your teaching style made me feel much more comfortable after the first few tries.

Hi Michael

Thank you for conducting a very thorough theoretical review prior to the examination, it was certainly very useful to help me cement what I had studied in the course manuals.

Similarly with the practical examination, your tuition was invaluable.  I actually went out in my boat on Sunday and had a quite successful maiden voyage

Can I book into the next VHF course you hold (outside of working hours) as I need to have a VHF radio license do log on and off with Sea Rescue won’t I?

Thanks again for your diligent training course, we had a great trip yesterday and hope to have many more.

Good Morning Mike,
Thank you for a very thorough and detailed training course last Sunday morning.
Our day ran smoothly thanks to your professionally run course. You provide a very comfortable training room and it was lovely to sit in an air conditioned environment with tea/coffee/water available. It made us relaxed and meant for easy learning.
You covered all the material and listened to all our questions covering any grey areas we had.
The practical was a breeze thanks to your instruction making it such a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
We both are now confident to go out on the water and build on the skills you have taught us. We will be recommending sea safe boat school as the only place to go.

This course had every thing that was advertised and much more giving me confidence to take my family and friends out on the water safely.

Keep up the good work. Some family and friends will contact you soon for the Gold course. Thanks again

Regards Luke Zamil


Hi Michael,

I wanted to say Thank You for your guidance today. I chose your company specifically as you go through step by step in so much detail and have the resource room and I have to tell you your experience and knowledge is amazing. I felt more confident with completing the course and confident to go out on the water once I finished all of the training and viewed the demonstrations.

Once again Thank you for your guidance, I will definitely recommend you to others 🙂


Sarah McCabe


Sea safe boat school Training with Mike Watson provided a very thorough training session for the new recreational skipper ticket theory requirements with a review prior to sitting the test. This was extremely helpful. The practical training was professionally conducted. There was no rushing and demonstrations given before the practical test. The facilities are top notch and it was so nice to site in air-conditioned comfort with cool drinks and toilet facilities

Thanks a million.  Highly recommended Tom Carroll

Hi Mike

Thanks for the course it was nothing short of brilliant, you set us up to pass . The theory presentation and the demonstrations of the boat handling  helped heaps and the classroom was a gem having a coffee in nice surroundings also was a bonus . A message any potential student , Dont go anywhere  but this guy

Thanks a  heaps Tony Braddock

Good day Michael

Just a few words  of thanks for a absolute brilliant Skippers course. the class room and facilities are 1st class and the boat so easy to drive, i have recommended quite a few people to you. keep up the good work. and ta big thank you. Regards  Tony Harper

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.

Gabriel Maritz


Thanks for getting me through the course. I don’t have any criticisms You are obviously a man who knows the subject material and how to teach it. I enjoyed doing the course with your company, and I have recommended my step-son do his RST through you.
All the best

Hi Michael
Thanks for the day today. I very much enjoyed it and was good to see how professionally you ran the session. I felt like I learnt a lot this morning and it will add great value to my future boating experiences.
Giulio Casello      Maylands   24/1/17

 Thanks Michael I enjoyed the course and i’m glad I chose Sea Safe.

Key things for me were having the “classroom” environment allowing for you to provide all the visual prompts and examples which was helpful particularly the navigation content.
Your style was also excellent, very experienced/ knowledgable and thorough but your relaxed manner put us all at ease and gave us confidence.
Similarly the practical assessment briefing was clear and concise and again we all gained confidence from  the way you instructed it.
My feedback wouldnt change anything really. I’ll recommend Sea Safe if I come across people looking to gain their stickers tkt.
Think I’m going to store my boat down at maylands so will say gday when I see you.
Thanks again

I attended the Skippers course and found the whole thing to be absolutly professional in every aspect, just could not fault this operation in any way. The instruction in the rooms was complete and very good in every aspect, Micheal knows his stuff no doubt about that. I could only reccomend Safe Boat School in the highest possible way as an absolute must if going to do the skippers ticket. Greg Truscott Canningvale WA

Hi Michael,

Happy to send you feedback as I think you run a great little course there.
I honestly can’t think of where you could improve! I had a great morning, very informative.
The pre-test run down on the rules and regs filled in any grey area’s and made everything clear.
I think you provided ample clarification & where more than fair whilst still being strict enough to not
allow someone to head out into the ocean without proving we understood the rules & requirements first.
Overall had a great morning and will be sure to recommend you to anyone interested in obtaining a skippers ticket.
– Mitch Johnson.  Maylands January 2017


Hi Michael,

Thank you for the course today, it was bloody brilliant.
I could not fault it at all. It was extremely useful.
I do not have Facebook but I have already referred you by Email to a few friends who are looking to do their ticket.
Thanks again and well done on a brilliant course.

Hi Michael ,

I would like to thank you and Sea Safe Boat School for the Skippers Training Course I attended Monday 5th December at your Maylands facility.I studied hard and had a couple of afternoons out on the river prior to attending your course , but none of this compared to the training and accessing that you provided.

I paid for the premium course and Michael was very clear and precise in the pre course training that I actually connected everything I had studied  from the DOT skippers book a lot more clearer and confident once Michael had taken us through the pre course training. I actually was quite nervous prior to attending the morning but had studied hard and watched the recommended video several times  , Once Michael was into the first 5 minutes of his training he explained things so much more clearly that it all just fell into place . I have attended many sales training and assessors course’s but I can honestly say that Michael knows his stuff , delivers it in a way that you can understand and is perhaps one of the best trainers I have seen. If you’re going for your Skippers ticket I highly recommend that you give Perth Sea Safe Boat School in Maylands a go .Thanks again Shane Anning




Cheers Michael,

You did a fantastic job running the course. Explained everything in a very clear and easy manner with out going over the top. I will recommend your company to anyone.

Thanks  Chris Simpson

Hi Michael,

Took my skippers here and found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. Michael was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and friendly, which helped to greatly reduce any nerves and stress. It’s also in a great location away from the chaos of other parts of the river. Would highly recommend!  Maylands September 2016


To all prospective client RST students:-

Michael has a great depth of sea knowledge and experience gained in a professional capacity over many years at sea, and this is very evident in his lectures.He also has excellent interpersonal people skills, and makes his clients feel relaxed and comfortable during the theory and practical lessons conducted within excellent facilities. Michael’s calm, friendly, informative lectures, and practical demonstrations, are down to earth and easily understood, and he is always willing to further explain the more complex situations in a patient reassuring manner.I have no hesitation in recommending family and friends to get their RST with Michael at his Sea safe Boat School.Regards,John Stevens13/09/2016

Fantastic relaxed coaching and mentoring from Mike, extremely professional throughout the assessment process and provided encouragement from the beginning of the course.

I took my skipper’s ticket by enrolling with Sea Safe Boat School. Michael’s approach to teaching using a classroom environment allowed me to understand the requirements and theoretical aspects better. The question and answer session was very useful with examples shown in the class and on the board. For someone who has never had any prior experience, I found the training offered very useful and enjoyable.
I would certainly recommend Sea Safe Boat School to any of my mates who may be interested.

Hi Michael, on behalf of Adam and myself we would like to thank you for the skippers ticket course we attended on Sat. 7th May. As an instructor your dedication and experience put us both at ease with the course.  We learnt a lot and had an enjoyable time in the company of yourself and other students.  Adam said “watch out for the boat hook ” while doing the man overboard test. For my part I thoroughly enjoyed my trip in the rain on the Deadliest Catch but sadly no crabs or fish. Both Adam and myself have
no hesitation in recommending you and your boat school in the future.
Keep up the good work.
All the best for the future.  Alan Webb. May 2016
Thanks for everything mate!
The course was an absolute dream, given my lack of experience in a boat I was a bit apprehensive about the practical but within a few minutes I felt confident that I was going to be alright everything was explained and demonstrated in an easy to understand manner made it a breeze. There were a few questions I wouldn’t have passed if it wasn’t for the theory we went over in the beginning I really appreciated the diagrams and examples of signs which helped my understanding of going through channels, who has right of way as well as things such as which sign means what and where possible dangers lie.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and am glad that I did it with you guys I think you’re running an excellent program and will happily be recommending your course to my friends.
Kind Regards

Thanks Michael. It really was a great experience. I would highly recommend to any one thinking of getting their RST. We did the silver course, and having been on the water for many years I still learned a heap from Michael. This bloke truly knows his stuff and he cares about the people he is teaching. Definitely not a money grabber. Regards Nick    April 2016


Thanks Michael for your patience and guidance with the revision and skippers course today.   It is such a relief to finally have our skipper’s ticket. The whole process was way out of my comfort zone but with your help and guidance it made it so easy. Well done and thank you once again.

Dear Michael

Thank you for your time today leading us in the skippers course.  I thought the course was excellent.  I like the way you adjusted the training to suit the ability of our group, moving on when you could see we had a good knowledge of a topic and explaining things clearly on things we were unsure of; this kept us interested and informed and really helped embed our learning.  The practical assessment ran really well, the set up of the boat together with your knowledge, experience and friendly manner allowed us to display our skills in a safe yet challenging setting.   I feel so much more confident to skipper our boat, the knowledge and tips you shared today will go a long way to ensuring we always enjoy a safe day on the water.
Thanks again

Your training was friendly and welcoming, some good laughs and easy going without scaring the girls to much. Very professional and a good setup for training guys and girls with no experiences. The river location was ideal with very little movement giving you peace of mind.
I highly recommend you and keep up the great work.

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.

Regards Peter Hall   Maylands 2016

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.
Alan, Melanie and Matt  January 2016

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 Steve & Tash. Natasha Rowe Maylands 2016

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. Clint Mcdowell, Paula McDowell, Darcy and Skye . Maylands 2016


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

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!
