"A big huge sincere thankyou to yourself, Daryl and young Steve for an awesome course filled with great knowledge, personal insight and a powerfull positive emphasis on safety that is now Brendan and my boating foundation to begin building on forever. I have left an amazing review on your website and Daryl was spot on when he said this course will far exceed our expectations. You 3 guys are masters of your craft and so friendly we could of chatted for hours with you all about your life on the water and skills. I took a heap of written notes on the day to do a safety audit on the boat also some further research and the booklet you provided stays in the boat as well. You guys should be so proud of the fine job you all do and the high standard you all set for us new boaties.😊" December 2019.

"Thanks for a great day Stephen. Very well conducted course and taught by an experienced captain / teacher. From Mitchell & Sharon Rogers."
"Hello Darryl and Steve,
Thank you for an enjoyable day on your course - I found it very informative and would recommend it to others, Steve was excellent out on the water.
Have a good week.
"Had a great day mate. Learned a lot and had some bloody good laughs along the way. I would definitely recommend you to others."
Just a quick note to say thank you to yourself and Darryl for yesterday’s boat licensing course.
I attended the course because I needed a boat license but got far more out of the course than that.
The session was extremely well delivered, informative and enjoyable, the whole day seemed like only a couple of hours.
I have no doubt that while passionate people like yourself and Darryl are delivering courses like this, far more people having a safer more enjoyable boating experience.
Loved last weekend. Was so good. The training was awesome!! Went to transport yesterday and got my licence ordered. So all good to go now.
Robin Waller my husband will definitely be there this Saturday. We were trying to get a friend to also go as well, but he's non-commital.
