RYA Training for Leisure
Based in the beautiful city of Bristol, our HQ runs a full range of RYA recognized marine industry courses including Powerboat, Personal Watercraft (JetSki) and safety boat courses. If you’re planning on buying or renting a boat, you will need one of these qualifications. We are the only RYA coastal training centre based in the Bristol Historic Floating Harbour and we are the only RYA centre to work in both inland and coastal waterways.
We also offer a variety of shore-based programmes such as Sea Survival, VHF/SRC Radio courses and a First Aid course which is specifically tailored to the marine industry and some of these courses are available as interactive online training.
