Andrew Bagnall-Priestley  recommends Sea Safe Boat School.

I have just done my Skippers ticket, and I have to say, I found Michael to be highly skilled, A very relaxing coach and his knowledge and style of teaching is excellent. Put us all at ease while making sure we understood everything.
I am so glad I made the decision to go with Michael.
I Highly recommend Sea Safe. Thank you.  13/7/19

Maritime Training School is affiliated with Sea Safe Boat School and conducted an audit last week. Michael is an example of what a trainer should be like. He had a great and professional set up, takes his training seriously and cares for the students to achieve the best outcomes for their boating journey. High standards, high success rate.
MTS is lucky to have you on board .

Peter Howard  recommends Sea Safe Boat School.

As the name suggests, Mike is all about safety. He didn’t just teach to pass the test, but to be better boaties. For the novice I would recommend the gold package to be able to spend more time in the boat and soak up the knowledge.

Mike was the 3rd place I called and the only one to pick up the phone and spend time answering questions about the course. He made a real effort to tailor the course to our skills, knowledge, and our future boat use.
He didn’t just make sure we passed the tests, he made sure we understood everything – so we’re now safe on the water.
Thanks again Mike, great course. Maylands 22/10/18

Hi Michael

Thanks for your email.

My feedback:

Appreciated your room next to the Marina in which you conducted the mini-review of the theory. Although I had spent some time beforehand, reviewing the DOT booklet and videos and doing all the review tests, I still found it useful to experience your down to earth review of the important aspects of the theory.

We were lucky on the day of my test, to have mild winds and a sunny day. Having had almost no experience with driving small boats, even in the mild conditions, I struggled a bit to manage the boat, especially the throttle/gears. Now I have my skippers ticket, I will try to get some practise at some of my less than perfect boat skills.

I think you managed to find a nice balance between being welcoming and friendly and being professional in your approach, especially in switching from trainer to assessor mode.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to my friends and relations.

Kind regards

Peter Hawken
Hi Peter although you have little experience you actually did drive the boat to the standards expected by the DOT . You made a great job of it and it was a pleasure to teach you. see you on the water

Thanks Michael

It was a great morning and I really enjoyed it. I felt a lot more confident taking the boat out last Sunday.

I will keep your email address as I might need some boating advice and knowing you have so much great experience!

I’ll be sending the husband along in the new year!

Thanks a lot


I just wanted to drop you a line to state my appreciation for what I’ve gained from your course. Your knowledge, experience and patience is second to none and your ability to explain and teach even the trickiest aspects of the Skippers Ticket is to be commended.
The whole course was extremely beneficial and enjoyable! I would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of gaining their Skipper’s Ticket, your course is surely the best anyone could hope to do.

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,

We had a great time doing the course, we thought you were excellent at preparing us for the theory and practical tests.

We will and have already recommended you to family and friends.

Keep up the great work!!             Maylands November 2016

Ben Trott reviewed Sea Safe Boat School5 star

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 would recommend Sea Safe Boat School to anyone from beginners onward to realise their potential and gain their recreational skippers ticket. Steven Chilton. September 2016 At Maylands

Max Williamson

A well set out course with a great instructor and good value for money! Highly recommend!    July 2016


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.

Regards Sivabalan Shumungam       June  2016

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your time today, we are glad we chose Sea Safe Boat School to obtain our skippers license.
Very professional with some great tips that could save our life!

Kind Regards Devon Hollywood  May 2016

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.

kind regards

Suzie, Luke and Sophie Waldram     March 2016


I enjoyed the experience & found your added comments on boating in general very informative.
The small group, ( 2 of us ) received your full attention & advice.
I could not fault the course in any point, well instructed & conducted & I look forward to enjoyable & safe future boating.

Kim Black     March 2016

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
Colleen Flynn      Maylands February 2016

Hi Michael, a huge thanks for spending the day teaching us. We felt at ease straight away you, and you helped us if we had any questions, and were very patient with us. We will definitely recommend you to anyone wishing to get their skippers test!
All the best, Adam and Brittany.

Morning Mike. Thankyou once again for yesterday! Me and the old boy both had a great morning! Mate we thought Seasafe is a great organisation that is in operation to help and assist with everyone looking to get their skippers ticket. We thought the course was run very well on the day and right from my first contact with you up untill this email now it was a pleasure to work with you! Thankyou Very Much! Tim and Walter Chrulew. Maylands  Feb 2016


Thanks Mike !

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.
Thank you
Michael, Corinne and Aimee Chiverton    Maylands February 2016

Corinne Chiverton Thankyou for a great morning Michael! Your professionalism and great manner put my mind at rest and made the task easy. Highly recommend Michael to teach you your skippers ticket. Cheers ?

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
Best Regards
Mal Coates   Feb 2016

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

Debbie, Chris and Keely  Maylands 2016


Charmaine Moss – 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  Maylands 2016

Murray Bertolini – January 24th,2016

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.

Gabriel Maritz  Maylands

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!

Regards,Steve Bennett
