Had such a great time during my PB2 course with Fred, everything looked under his control and safe even if we were all first timers!! Would recommend anytime ✌️
I very much enjoyed my classes at Aigua Sea School. Fred was a wonderful instructor – very patient and calm! I would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic 2 weeks starting off with the theory week with Nathan and going onto the sailing practical week with the infamous “Johnny B”. Everything was very well organised from start to finish. We all had plenty of helm time to get comfortable handling a 40′ catamaran under power and sail. Both my wife and I walked away feeling very satisfied with overall package. We can definitely recommend Aigua Sea School for all your yacht training. Thanks for a great time Werner and Janet.
This is a shout out to Johnny Breslin and the Aigua Sea School for an incredibly well organised and informative week on my RYA Day Skipper practical course. I was a rather late candidate but the team in the office did everything to make the transition on to the boat as smooth as possible.
Once I arrived on the Catamaran to take part in the Day Skipper Qualification, Johnny Breslin (the instructor) welcomed me right on board and professionally covered all the elements of what was to be expected during the course. Johnny is one of the most experienced seaman I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and his vast knowledge on all aspects of the ocean was perfectly explained and demonstrated.
All along he made the course enjoyable during every theory session and all the practical manoeuvring. I felt I was always learning something new and you could go to him with any question/query you may have had. He controlled the dynamics of the crew very well and ensured the boat was comfortable and every crew member had all the relevant materials on board.
Overall, I couldn’t recommend Johnny and the Sea School enough for everything they have done to make this course extremely worthwhile in my progression in the yachting industry.
Great school, courses and facilities offered with instructors who are passionate about what they are teaching and students’ learning and career progression.
The extra knowledge, time and guidance that Linda gives students, particularly through her Navigation workshops is so valuable.
It is no wonder why Aigua Sea School is the go to choice for Yachtmasters and has many returning students.
So, my visit to Mallorca is finished unfortunately. But I had been so much impressed by this visit. First of all I had faced with Aigua Sea School where I was trained for Powerboat level 2. Just I want to say huge thank you to all staff and especially to my instructor Fred Harper. I will be very happy to visit Aigua Sea School again!
From an instructor’s point of view, Aigua offers unparalleled facilities but, more importantly, a very good support system which means we can offer great service to the students.
When you couple that with their diligence and integrity you can be sure of being in safe hands.
Thanks for everything during the two weeks I spent with you guys. It was a lot of information to take on and was a great feeling to complete the course on Sunday afternoon.
I felt well prepared for the exam and found it to be a straight forward process. The examiner was great.
Just finished a week of Yachtmaster Ocean Theory with Simon Bradshaw at Aigua, and yet again, Aigua has not failed to deliver on top quality tuition, support and smiles throughout the whole week!
Fantastic school and I could not recommend them enough!
Great new offices, perfect location and super helpful and knowledgeable staff!!! And Linda is always very friendly and keen to help out when she can. highly recommend this place!!!
Mayday, Mayday, Mayday. This is Matias, Matias, Matias on board the Astralium. I’ve just obtained my Powerboat Level 2 licence and I’m here to leave a review.
If you are lucky when you join the course you’ll get one of Aigua Sea School competent and capable instructors, but if you’re EXTREMELY lucky, that is if your lucky star is shining its light above you then you will get Fred H as your instructor. An individual with vast and comprehensive knowledge in his field all of which would be useless if not accompanied by his easily understood and very well honed teaching skills.
So Fred, hoping your lucky star shines its light above you all the time, I want to thank you once again for your availability, your kindness and awesomeness.
Also I’d like to take the time to compliment the Aigua Sea School office team that are top notch as well.
I do recommend this teaching institution.
Whole Aigua crew makes you feel super welcome from the first day. Everyone is willing to help and answer all your questions. John is truly amazing instructor, super patient and doesn’t mind explaining whatever is needed few times. I had wonderful time during those two weeks, both in the class and on the water! BIG THANKS to you guys, for all the knowledge and great time and for getting me prepared and ready for YM exam. I highly recommend Linda’s school to anyone!
Truly an incredible experience with Aigua Sea School, John and this particular crew. I had a really enjoyable week, learnt lots and truly enjoyed sailing and living aboard a smaller yacht again so thank you so much for allowing me to stay! The course was really informative and I felt very prepared for the exam. Compared to other courses I have been on, John found enough time to give each of us numerous attempts at each manoeuvre and immediate feedback to improve upon.
Hope to see you soon, thank you to you and the team at the school for all of the help prior to the course, to John for all of his patience and great teaching and to the team for a fun “holiday” and creating such a welcoming environment!
Aigua helped me pass my Yachtmaster and I couldn’t recommend them enough! Awesome school, people and will definitely go there for future courses!
Aigua Sea School is one of the best yacht crew training centres in Palma. Excellent instructors, friendly office staff and great modern facilities. Highly recommended!
Day Skipper was really a really cool course. where many sailing sailing techniques have been spent, with fully practical lessons on a super comfortable sailboat and sailing through wonderful places. It’s really worth taking a course with Aigua Sea School … very good.
Aigua helped me pass my Yachtmaster and I couldn’t recommend them enough! Awesome school, people and will definitely go there for future courses!
Simon is a passionate teacher, he really enjoy what he does, and he has an enormous knowledge about the ocean, that is able to explain in easy words understandable from everyone. The yachtmaster ocean course with him was absolutely FAAANTAASTIC!!!
Thank you Simon and thanks Aigua sea school for providing such good instructors!
Having studied astronomy with Spanish directions in the past, I had an idea to do things. Doing this course with Simon @ Aigua has opened my mind to fully understand and do, plus developing a capability to practice by my own anytime, what is terrific!!!! Super happy to have learned and enjoyed with all my course mates this week of ancient knowledge laid down in a very simple way so we can all understand. Furthermore, this new location is fantastic and has been prepared thoroughly to deliver the best to all students. Linda has achieved the right ambient, noise cancelling disturbances, open space with all what you need. Last and not least, Linda pays attention to all her students personally while running a very professional center. Proud to be one of them again!
Incredible experience in doing Day Skipper Sail with Aigua and Nathan an excellent instructor. Seamless from booking to finishing up. Can highly recommend Aigua.
Hi, I did RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased in first week of Sept 2019. Simon Bradshaw (Instructor) is a gem. The best part of the course was when we went out at sea to take sights.
I did my PWC on the weekend, the instructor was really good and i had great time on Jetski that day.
The second week of Sept, i did my conversion from Yachtmaster Offshore Sail to Motor. The instructor was very experienced with lots of knowledge and a friendly person, he polished our skills so nicely that on third day of prep, me and Greg were confident for exam. And finally we both passed, it was a wonderful feeling that day.
I will definitely recommend to all my friends and will suggest whoever is reading this feedback, to come and do courses with Aigua Sea School, the best school in Europe. I thank Linda Revill (Principal of school) and Rachael for all the support.
Amazing experience doing ocean theory with Simon Bradshaw. Aigua Sea School have been the upmost professional operation who genuinely care about their students and their successes. Highly recommended for all!
The best sea school in Mallorca so far! Lovely attention, amazing instructors, even with bad weather we spent an incredible week sailing in rough sea and strong winds, which made an unforgettable experience.
If your looking for a great place to learn with friendly staff and a really supporting family feel. Then look no further. They have great classroom studying areas with a great program. I had a really great experience with Aigua and with there support got the results I wanted with my Yachtmaster. They have been so helpful and I would recommend them to anyone wanting to further there career in the yachting industry. Look forward to going back. Thanks again.
Just finished my YM ocean theory course and have to say that it was a brilliant experience!
Lots of support coming from the school and Simon Bradshaw, our instructor.
He has enormous experience as a worldwide sailer with vast seamanship knowledge and fabulous teaching skills.
Thank you very much Aigua Sea school!!!!
Very good Powerboat Level 2 course with an absolutely clear and professional instructor Dylan.
Just finished my yachtmaster offshore and it’s been absolutely fantastic. From the booking to the exam they were giving a huge support. Nathan, who runs the theory class, was clear and patient and Johnny B, who did our sailing prep, is simply a wonderful person with great knowledge and a big heart, we all have a good time with him.
The whole school is made by a friendly team of a very high level!
Thank you Aigua. I’ll see you for the YM ocean.
Just wanted to say that Jonathan, Zac and I really enjoyed the Powerboat 2 at the weekend. Fred was a very good instructor and pitched it just right for everyone. I was nervous at the start but he was able to put me at ease with no problem.
We were all novices but he was really patient with us and everything became clear.
All your correspondence was timely and informative (parking etc). So thanks for that as well.
Would recommend to others for sure.
The training facilities are great; the team are knowledgeable, friendly and focused; you should definitely attend Aigua for your training.
Lovely friendly group of instructors at Aigua. We thoroughly enjoyed our Day Skipper Course. The boat was lovely, facilities great and they couldn’t have been more helpful from start to finish. If you are thinking of booking a sailing course, look no further.
We had a great few days completing our Day Skipper Motor last week. Aigua were brilliant from the first enquiry to completion of the course. They are a lovely bunch of people, very professional, great fun and so helpful. Nathan our instructor is clearly very skilled and experienced and has a fabulous calming influence even during the tricky tasks. I wouldn’t look anywhere else for further training courses- Aigua were spot on!
Great idea, phantastic service! Highly recommended!
Great school with great staff and very accommodating!
Absolutely brilliant. We booked the Private course for 3 of us. Fred was brilliant and worked to all our skill levels. We learnt so much and will definitely be recommending Fred and the team. Hope to be booking further courses again soon : ) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Huge thanks to Nathan Skinner for his fabulous own-boat tuition last week. Nathan tailored the content to our specific needs and his knowledge was fantastic. Nathan was clear and calm with excellent communication skills and I really felt my confidence and competence develop. I highly recommend Aigua Sea School (the admin support from Rachael and JP was also great). I’ll definitely look to use all of them again for any further sail training.
Did my PB2 with Nathan from Aigua and not only was it incredibly informative but also really good fun! I look forward to taking my boat out with my shiny new licence!
Great two days with Fred doing our Powerboat Level 2. Highly recommended 👍👍
We did 2 great courses with Dylan.
It was a really fun, formative and very practical course. Our instructor Dylan was very thorough and would do his best to train all excercises up to standard. Highly recommended.
Aigua were so helpful to me, squeezing me onto the course less than 2 weeks before the start date (after a previous school cancelled on me). This certainly didn’t feel like a downgrade as there training were very high quality and my instructor (Nathan) talked everything through calmly and thoroughly. By the end of the week I felt completely comfortable with the handling of the boat and the navigation aspect. I would highly recommend Aigua to anyone wanting to gain the Day skipper motor ticket!
I’ve just finished a Day Skipper course with Aigua. They are all very welcoming, professional and client focused. I highly recommend this company and Patrick as a trainer. I will definitely join another course next year
Just completed the Dayskipper Sail Combo with John O´Hara and Geraint Edwards as our brilliant, super competent and friendly teachers.
Thank´s very much to you guys, learned so much in the last 9 days, was a great pleasure to me!
Just completed my Yacht Master Offshore qualification with Aigua and what can I say, Linda, JP and Rachael bent over backwards to accommodate mine and the other guy’s needs going above and beyond with their customer care. The instructors (all of them) were exceptionally knowledgeable and made sure you understood exactly what they were teaching
Thanks a million to a superb team.
The training facilities are great; the team are knowledgeable, friendly and focused; you should definitely attend Aigua for your training.
I did the PBL2 with Fred and loved the course. It was mostly practical and learned how to do diferent manouvers. I totally recomend Aigua Sea school and will of course continue doing with them most of my yachtmaster courses.
Had a fantastic day today thanks to Aigua sea school doing the jet ski course in Port Adriano, excellent instructors Paul and Victor. Then popped to the office in Palma which is amazing, with a beautiful art gallery. Thank you very much to everyone who made our day a day to remember.
Just had a really great experience at Aigua Sea School on my Yachtmaster prep and exam. Linda runs a very effective and friendly team. Both Nathan and John were brilliant instructors, who made the time both productive and enjoyable.
Just completed a day skipper and competent crew course with my husband. Brilliant organisation from start to finish. Everyone very friendly and helpful, John-Paul and Rachael in the office. Instructor, Franco, very professional and patient! Perfect way to learn to sail in a lovely environment. Can’t recommend this company enough.
Best in Mallorca . Made my PBL2 and SRC with them . Super nice team , very competent .
I am extremely impressed by Aigua from the office to the instructors. I had the pleasure to have Nathan skinner and John O’Hara for my yachtmasters sail. Such good instructors!! Equipment is good, boats are fantastic! You can’t go wrong with these guys! Thank you Aigua
Amazing School ! Great teacher ! Got my Yacht Master Offshore with lots of fun thanks AIGUA !
Just completed YM Ocean Theory course, which, as expected, is quite demanding. So, what can a school do to make it as pleasurable as possible, and to provide the student with the best possible outcome? Do what Aigua do.
Firstly, use a top flight Instructor. Simon was not only knowledgeable, but incredibly passionate that is clearly supported by a wealth of experience. Even the driest of topics was brought to life with a practical and simplified approach for use on the water. Not to mention, just a jolly nice bloke.
Secondly, provide a learning environment that makes the student not only feel important and valued, by providing classrooms that are purposely designed for learning, but also make the student feel you are THE only focus by the school. There is a real sense that this is about your success, not the school’s.
Thirdly, for this particular course, the day on the water is a master stroke. Incredibly powerful.
Do I have any complaints or suggestions? Get Fibonacci’s to relocate a bit closer!
Thank you for a great experience.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and the school staff for an excellent organisation and support for all of us during the course.
Special thanks to John who is an outstanding teacher and coach. He sets high standards, is extremely knowledgeable and efficient in communicating the essence of the course content. He is demanding and at the same time very supportive to the participants. Big factor in the success of all.
I will gladly recommend your school.
The course went well. Chris was a lot of fun and made the course informative and enjoyable at the same time. I was impressed with the fact that everything was easily organised for me essentially last minute and that the people at Aigua went out of their way to ensure things were achieved.
My wife and I took the Day Skipper Sail course with Nathan. We went in a little nervous but by the end of the week, we learned so much that we felt fully confident in our first upcoming charter. Nathan is a very professional and skilled and patient instructor. The staff was accommodating with very good communication before and after the course so we knew what to expect and all necessary details.
Just finished the 2-week prep for Yachtmaster. Great school, great experience. I highly recommend them. Positive atmosphere and a very helpful team.
DO YOUR COURSE WITH AIGUA!
Great people, great sense of humour and legitimately interested in your success on course and afterwards.
John is a highly experienced tutor with a great teaching style for Yachtmaster! Catch you next time Aigua Team!
Many thanks to Linda and her team, such a positive energy at Aigua Sea School.
John, our instructor, was excellent and so influential to all of us in the YM class.
I’d highly recommend.
I’ve just spent the last two weeks studying towards my Yachtmaster offshore at Aigua Sea School and I really could not recommend them highly enough.
We spent the first week studying theory with John in the classroom and he was excellent – very clear and structured and we learnt a great deal. We studied with Nathan for our practical in the second week and he pushed us very hard, he was very methodical, and my driving developed a huge amount in a short space of time. And our whole group passed!
I would not have been successful without the expert tutilage provided, and will return to Aigua for any studies in the future.
I recently completed my Yachtmaster Power 2 week course and have also completed my Day Skipper Motor course with Aigua. A lot of time and effort was obviously put in by Linda and the rest of the Aigua Team to make sure that everything went smoothly. The course was fantastic, the preparation weeks put me in a great position in order to pass the exams and I can only thank Linda for sorting all of this out.
A brilliant training school that I would highly recommend to anyone. They are very professional as a team and will help in every way possible in order to help you pass. Both my theory and practical instructors John & Steve were brilliant and I will be back to do future courses with them. Thanks very much to Linda and all the team at Aigua!
Thanks a lot for everything, it was a great experience I got through the yacht master offshore course, although it was hard for me because of my low English, but with Aigua Sea school staff support I passed it successfully.
Thank you again🔝⛵️
Best sea school in Spain! you can be certain that you will learn all the way of the syllabus. Done my coastal, offshore and soon my Ocean Yachtmaster. Myself and all people I know are pleased and will support a job well done.
To be fear I was really worried about If I can do my Yachtmaster obviously with my English that no was so good but they been so positive, helping, patient and persistent.
I have to give an extra and massive thanks to AIGUA SEA SCHOOL for do more than they should do!
AMAZING TEAM, VERY PROFESSIONAL and AMAZING PEOPLE!
I’ll be back! 😎
Many thanks to John for repeat and translate to me as many times I needed! 🙌🏻
Many thanks to John Paul and Reachel for amazing solve each of my problems and manage everything perfectly!🙌🏻
Thanks to Gavin for amazing training!🙌🏻
Linda thank very much for do that extra stuff to make me feel confident to do my YACHTMASTER OFFSHORE AND COMMERCIAL ENDORSED!!!
I just recently did my yacht master with Aigua Sea School and couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Both the theory and practical instructors were very thorough and explained things well. If you haven’t got your VHF licence they can sort this out for you and put you through the exam that week. Thank you Linda and the team!
Super team and great experience! The best!! Thanks for everything!
Just passed my Yachtmaster with this bunch and can’t recommend them highly enough. From the moment I walked through the door I felt really welcome, all the staff were great and explained everything really clear, definitely will be back for more courses!! Thanks guys !!
Amazing teacher and great atmosphere.
Very friendly people. I am Spanish and my English is not very good but they care about this and I could get my ticket. Spanish people thinking in the Yachtmaster course definitely ask for Aigua Sea School in Palma.
Just finished another course with Aigua Sea School, my 4th to date. As always Linda’s team were friendly, professional and knowledgeable and delivered my course in a most relaxed and encouraging format. In my experiences nothing is to much trouble for them. Thanks to Nathan for all your help on my course.
Also thanks to both JP and Rachael for all your efforts in arranging my course and examiner at such short notice .
I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Linda, you helped me believe that I was capable of achieving my Yachtmaster despite the set backs I had, I can’t thank you enough, also for taking your own time to run through some things with me so I felt more confident. THANK YOU.
Johns theory classes were very interesting, he is so passionate, organized and professional.
JP is always happy, helpful and easy to talk to.
You have an awesome team and run a very professional school.
Thank you ever so much.
Finished up my Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased course this week. Another fantastic AIGUA experience. Our instructor, Simon Bradshaw was excellent. Knowledge, engaging, and offered insights above and beyond the curriculum. Linda, JP, and Rachael in the front office were always helpful, and available to answer any administrative questions throughout the week.
Just finished today the YM Ocean and getting already for the Oral now, I did my YM Offshore with them already. Once you know how good the team from Aigua is, why do you even need to think about going somewhere else. Simon Bradshaw, has been our instructor and its amazing how passionate and patience he is to be able to make you get all the information you need to learn in one week. Believe me, he does it. Just one more thanks to John-Paul and Rachael for their daily basis support. AIGUA SEA SCHOOL ROCKS!!!!!!!
I attended the Yachtmaster Ocean course with Simon Bradshaw. It was a great week, learned a lot. The instructor Simon is very experienced, patient and had great knowledge of what he is talking about. I highly recommend Aigua Sea School for yachtie or anyone else!!
I just completed the Powerboat Level 2. From the moment I contacted the school they have been nothing but professional and passionate about what they do. JP, Rachael and Linda are great people who really care about their students. The course and instructor Fred were amazing. The training was fun and I learned more than I thought possible in just 2 days. I would recommend Aigua to anyone and can’t wait to do more courses with them.
I have just finished my Yachtmaster Offshore practical this week and I had the best experience with Aigua, my prep teacher was an ex navy guy, super kind, funny, helpful and very professional in any aspect, our instructor always found a logical way to explain everything you may struggle with, big thanks for that 🙂 Last but not least I highly recommend Aigua Sea School. Thanks for everything guys. Keep it up the good work!!
This school is seriously great. Amazing, friendly, really helpful people, always full of smiles and very team orientated. I highly recommend this school for any one looking to do any courses with them. Great instructors and fantastic facilities and I’d put more stars if I could.
I might also take this opportunity to let you know how happy I was with the course provided. Simon Bradshaw was without a doubt the best instructor I have had in any subject.
I would highly recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone.
Great school to do your yacht master course with! I would definitely recommend going to the free workshops prior to the course, Linda runs these very well and is willing to take on any questions or queries that allowed me to feel confident and comfortable going into the theory week. John was a great instructor and covered everything we needed to know plus more. The practical week was also very beneficial for me! Overall a very well run, friendly and organized company.
Having trained in many schools throughout the world, I was thrilled when I found Aigua Sea School in Mallorca. Their approach to training is concise all the way through from theory to practical. John is an experienced trainer with lots of patience and the whole experience was, to be honest, bloody good! Highly recommend.
Highly professional Instructors & Staff. This is 2nd time that I’m finishing courses with them. I was here 3 year’s ago and they are still amazing. Now I had such a great experience with Celestial navigation. I highly recommend this school.
Good school and they really care about the students.
Great Staff! Lovely people and very friendly too. This school is the best option by far.
The course was great, Nathan was super attentive, he’s a great teacher. I feel like I got the best training possible being the only student, I really enjoyed the course.
Thank you for a great course! It was a great experience. I really respect the dedication and effort that Aigua puts in for its students, it’s excellent in all ways. I am super stoked to be a Yachtmaster!
Thank you team at Aigua Sea School. I was recommended by a friend who did his Day Skipper and I’m so glad I followed his advice. I learnt a lot in two weeks that I hadn’t learnt in years… it wasn’t easy, but a Yachtmaster isn’t meant to be easy. I’m over the moon to officially be a skipper now. Thank you John-Paul and Rachael for always answering my calls and questions. Thank you John for being a great teacher and of course thank you to Linda for your encouragement the whole way, and running the whole show! I recommend Aigua Sea School highly.
I really enjoyed the course and definitely felt well prepared for the exam. John was a fantastic instructor and I’m really grateful for the effort he put in. I will recommend you guys to anyone I know looking to get their yachtmaster.
Well focused on preparing for the exam. I went to the exam with a solid preparation and well on the topics we have been assessed. A school that is building an outstanding performances record, and yet maintains a very approachable philosophy with their students/clients.
I want to thanks Aigua Sea School for the two weeks, theorical and practical in which I have acheived my YM Offshore license.
Teachers and instructors have been working with us all the time. At the same time, from the office, I have received good vibes, emotional support and all the material necessary to face the final exam.
I will remember this as 15 hard work days in my life, but very grateful to be a Captain!
Thank you Aigua!
100 % Best place in the world with the most encouraging and kind people!! Thank you to the whole TEAM!!
I did a two-week Yachtmaster course – a week of classroom theory followed by a seven hour written exam (!) and a week of practice followed by a 2-day practical exam. I passed my offshore theory exam and my Yachtmaster Coastal (which is what I was going for, until I build more miles).
It was a great experience. The school is in a cool part of Palma near the port. The boat was ideal for this sort of course, and handled beautifully. The two-week format was ideal, exactly what I was looking for. John was a fantastic instructor; and Linda and Rachel (and another neat guy, who’s name I can’t recall) were super-helpful whenever I had a question or problem. Most importantly, the course is geared toward the exam, so I felt well-prepared at exam time.
I’ve spoken with a lot of sea schools in the region (Baleares, Barcelona, Gibraltar and Canaries) and everyone speaks highly of Aigua Sea School. I’m proud to drop their name, and really glad I chose them for my Yachtmaster course.
I followed the 2 week Yachtmaster offshore course and our instructor was John. The 2 weeks are very intense but you learn so much and are extremely well prepared for the exam. Thank you guys for training me well and good luck with your season.
What a lovely group of people! The staff was very friendly and helpful the instructors were professional jet still fun. I had a good experience overall with Aigua and would definitely come back to do courses with them in the future.
Recently did the Yachtmaster Ocean Shorebased course at Aigua sea school being taught by Simon Bradshaw. Simon is a fantastic instructor, his methodology is tried and tested, this makes it much easier when it came to the maths and calculations. The school provides each student with a sextant to practice with during the course and we swapped them between us to get used to the different styles. The extra day at sea taking sights really helped to understand the whole process. Linda, JP and the office team were great at answering any questions I had and were very helpful guiding me through the process. I couldn’t recommend Simon or Aigua Sea School highly enough!
The course was great. A really good mixture of practical experience and theory. I learnt a lot and I am much more comfortable with maneuvering a larger boat in a confined space. Gavin was very good. Very informative and helpful and also focused on the practicalities not just the theory. Also a very nice guy which helps. It was an enjoyable 4 days.
I would like to thank all at Aigua Sea School especially Nathan. I attended a powerboat course last year with Nathan as my instructor, and I was fortunate again this year to be taught again by Nathan on my YachtMaster theory and also my advanced powerboat course in September this year.
Without a doubt this has been my most enjoyable course to date. I learnt an incredible amount of both theory and advanced standard boat handling skills. I really enjoyed the night driving. It was a fantastic experience due to the training and confidence gained from Nathan’s teaching.
The encouragement I received during the whole of the course, including the administration staff John Paul and Rachael, was amazing which added to the whole experience. Obviously I would also like to thank Linda for her support.
I would thoroughly recommend Aigua for anyone considering a course. I have recently inquired about a further two courses I would like to take with them.
I enjoyed the Day Skipper Motor course very much. Steve was a very good teacher and explained everything clearly and slowly while being patient.
I am a happy boater with what I did learn in your school now with my own 34 Faireline Targa.
Brilliant sailing school I did the Day Skipper course for 5 days and the teacher Hilly was amazing. Learned so much over the 5 days and would love to return to do another course in the future
Excellent experience! The entire organization is professional and helpful. They take the extra steps to make it a great time while learning in an environment that is second to none. Will surely be attending another training here in the near future.
I completed my PBL2 with Aigua Sea School in 2017. I then took advantage of the free Yachtmaster Workshops later in the year to get me started on my career.
Little did I know, all the gems of information presented in such a supportive, interesting and professional environment would be put into practice. Shortly thereafter I assisted on the bridge for a pacific and atlantic crossing. It was perfect timing 👌 and I highly recommend. Thank you!
Excellent experience, Aigua does a great job of balancing the line between learning but also enjoying the experience. Nathan is a great instructor!
Good course and good vibes. Everything went very smoothly!
I just finished the Powerboat level 2 course and had a brilliant time, great balance between fun and knowledge/lessons. Highly recommendable.
We had to change the instructor on the Day Skipper Motor course due to sudden illness. It was interesting as each one showed a different technique of driving so that we learned two. In general it was a marvelous experience!
I did the day skipper sail training last month together with my son. Since we are owning a sail boat in Mallorca the school offered us to do the class on our boat which was fantastic! We were able to learn the specifics of our boat and could customize the week to our needs! Our teacher Steve was amazing! He is the kind of guy that always stays very calm in for me freaking out situations. He has tons of experience and is very motivating and encouraging. He gave me a lot of trust that I can do it and is a nice person to have around! We learned so much and couldn’t ask for a better teacher! Will definitely do more classes! Thank you!
Firstly I was very impressed by Rachael and John-Paul’s kindness, assistance and enthusiasm. I always thought I was being taken care of, and will definitely be booking up the online RYA Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Online course with you the end of September. Once I have passed this I’ll explore further with you guys for Advanced Power and Coastal Skipper practical courses.
Will Downing, the Skipper for the Day Skipper course, was marvelous! He pushed me when I needed it and was a fountain of knowledge on all things not just sailing. I would definitely recommend him.
Fred Harper, for my Level 2 Powerboat was equally good. He helped increase my confidence, and I really appreciated his style and genuine focus on safety.
It goes without saying that I would definitely recommend Aigua Sea School, as I was very impressed.
The big sailing schools are not always the best but we had a wonderful experience with Aigua Sea School in Mallorca. We did our practical RYA Day Skipper and Competent Crew course with Nathan Skinner, a terrific instructor. His calmness and clarity in explanation has made it simple for all participants to learn the skills in an unpressured and playful way. We had a great atmosphere on the boat and left with a feeling of having spent a holiday (not a course), but learned a lot. Good support from the office as well. Thank you all for this memorable experience.
Great experience, great customer service and will hopefully be back again for day skipper courses!
Pretty straightforward to deal with and good organisation. Powerboat Course was thorough and also enjoyable. Really glad I did it here and not somewhere cold and rainy.
I was convinced that my objective in life was to live in a small cottage in the middle of northern Canada. Hunting and growing all I would need to eat and essentially living at a very low cost. Now, because of Aigua Sea School, I have to add a massive chunk in order to sustain owning a sail boat as well! It was a pleasure to do the Competent Crew course with them. I had only ever been a passenger on a boat before, now I feel quite confident with my ability to be on a boat. I can now be useful rather than just sitting down and getting burnt in the sun. Nathan did a great job in instructing me and he managed to stay very patient and understanding throughout the course.
If you’re looking to get into yachting or working in the maritime industry, meeting Linda is as necessary as knowing how to swim.
Extremely good school, totally professional, friendly and welcoming from the minute I entered the school. Training was excellent and the course well balanced between theory and hands on. Fred is very knowledgeable, helpful and very patient and a good teacher and demonstrates what to do and then gives you loads of opportunity for hands on practice. I will definitely be returning for further courses. Thanks Aigua Sea School !
Congratulations. You did a wonderful awesome job. Thank you so much. Your service was impeccable.
Thank you so much to all the staff, to have made everything looking so easy and comfortable. Best organised school! The yachtmaster offshore has been a great experience thanks to you and especially John, I’ve learnt a lot, had fun and I’d do it again and again. Coming back soon for the Ocean!
Just completed my Day Skipper training with Aigua and Instructor Nathan Skinner. It was a fantastic week. I learnt a tremendous amount, both practical and theory. The Aigua team gave great customer service. I coudn’t have wished for a better instructor in Nathan. He gave 110%, great communicator and very professional. A very positive experience and would definitely go back for more training.
Thank you so much for an amazing course and instructor Fred Harper’s clear, fun and patient way of instructing! Highly recommended!
I recently did my day skipper course with them and I was very impressed! We learned a lot, I feel I really got everything out of the course I was looking for and it was good fun too. Special thanks to Nathan, you’re an awesome teacher! Kudos for your patience, positivity and the time you took to go the extra mile!!
I completed the RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Theory course in late May 2018 with Aigua Sea School and it was excellent. I booked the course a few days before it was due to start as I just finished a incredibly long delivery not knowing when I was going to arrive in Palma.
Due to the fact that 3 students pulled out of the course a few days before it was incredible that Aigua didn’t cancel the course and I was the only student remaining with one on one tuition from Simon Bradshaw.
Simon is an incredibly knowledgeable instructor…
who conveys a deep passion in the course he teaches. He is incredibly patient when I was coming to grips with the course content in the first few days. The approach to course was practical as we perfected the use of the sextant and even went out in the Bay of Palma to make the sun sights. Not only that he is willing to provide guidance when I finally do the ocean passage. I highly recommend Simon as an instructor.
With the extremely high level of customer service from Linda, John Paul and Rachel it’s completely understandable why Aigua Sea School is a top class RYA school with consistent high levels of feedback from previous students. My only regret is that I didn’t go to Aigua Sea School to do my Yachtmaster Offshore and other RYA courses.
A truely top class institution!
The school had a challenge when their primary powerboat went out of commission. They worked overtime to manage to get a boat for the PB2 course. Nathan is a great instructor with great patience and encouraging feedback to help you get the skills you need. Highly recommended!
I made it back to Hong Kong (with my plotter and all my luggage…) and have been relaxing (much needed) and reflecting back on those intense but very rewarding two weeks at Aigua.
It’s been a demanding pace and a lot of hard work indeed stepping up to your and RYA’s high standards (considering my starting point just a few decimal places above zero…), but I cannot thank you enough for having prepared me so well for both the theory and practical exams.
By the eve of the practical exam weekend, I was very pleased and satisfied with what I had learned. Regardless of the verdict from the RYA examiner, I just simply felt I was now a much better sailor and, more importantly, had gained a lot more confidence in doing so. Passing the practical exam was just the cherry on the sundae!
My only regret is not having had enough time to enjoy and visit Palma, which only means I shall be back some day.
In the meantime, all my thanks to you all, not only for your professionalism and dedication, but for being just great people.
I am glad that I have chosen Aigua Sea School, and shall definitely recommend it to everyone!
PS – Special thanks to John – please wish him all the best and a real nice time in Madagascar, and the best of luck in finding a properly draught pint of Guinness there!
I was very happy to return to Aigua this year for a Power Boat level 2 course that I needed for work. Being limited on dates and courses being booked up The Aigua Team were extremely helpful to put on another course especially. The training was great, perfect pace and maximum 3 to the course means plenty of practice. Fred had the experience to guide us through the course to perfect our manoeuvres and theory work easily making it a breeze. I am so happy to have found Aigua, they always seem to instil confidence when undertaking new skills and challenges. Thank you!
The Powerboat Level 2 course was perfect, the teacher was very nice and I’m very very happy with the course – everything was great! 10 out of 10 for Aigua!
The course was great, I really liked the instructor, everything was good and I’m very happy 😊 It’s the second course I’ve done with you and I’ll be back for my Coastal skipper when I’ve got the miles. I really like the approach with your courses and your focus on learning, I’m totally satisfied with Aigua.
The Powerboat Level 2 course was very good, I’m very happy! It was very professional and the instructor Nathan explained everything very well!
I loved the Yachtmaster course 100%. I did theory before at another school but it was a lot better at Aigua, you guys are a lot more open-minded and don’t assume that we know everything, John was a great teacher!
The course was terrific, Nathan was really, really fantastic! He was on it all the time and always giving us opportunity to learn, he was very aware at all times. Very impressed with his ability to manage four personalities in a small space throughout the week – really excellent at people management. I’ll definitely be coming back and will want to repeat the Day Skipper course again, probably with Nathan. I think the Day Skipper course is great value for the time onboard.
I really really want to thank you all for the amazing work you put into this course and the brilliant instructor (Fred). He really made the course easy to understand and gave more information than I thought I would get, he trained us all equally well. 100% all the way I will definitely point people to your school and will probably do more courses through you as well. Fantastic client service.
You guys at Aigua were an absolute pleasure to take the course with, our theory with John was extremely thorough.
Supportive, Dedicated, Motivated, Passionate, Experienced, Professional!
All the words to describe the Aigua team!
I emailed Linda two weeks before arriving in Palma explaining the situation and circumstances that I was left in after attending another school close to Aigua in 2015 which resulted in me failing my YM practical exam. She ensured me that if I chose to come back to Aigua I would be welcomed with open arms and that she would personally dedicate her own time helping me get through the topics I struggled most with in the course. I had no doubts that Aigua was the place to I should return to.
I have known Linda for 5 years now and the one thing that never fails to amaze me is just how much love and care she pours into the students at Aigua, Her passionate approach to new, existing or previous students is so greatly appreciated and shows that aside from the business relationship you can also build long lasting and trust worthy personal relationships which I find to be an incredible asset to the school. The same love and care is also given by her wonderful colleagues, Rachael and JP, Nothing but smiles, laughs and positive attitudes!
The instructors John O’Hara and Steve Ginger were amazing, so knowledgable and patient ensuring that everything taught was understood entirely before moving onto the next topic. Their calm and experienced demeanor speaks volumes and shows a real sense of passion for what they are doing which drew me in and built an intense learning environment. I can’t stress how important and fulfilling this is, The entire two weeks I was constantly on the edge of my seat seeking new information and skills!
I have learned so much during the last two weeks and can’t thank you all enough, It has been an absolute pleasure and I will most definitely be returning in the near future. Thank you all for the support and motivation from day one. Each morning the minute I walked through the door I was greeted with words of affirmation from Linda “Morning Captain Josh!!” and after completing my final exam I proudly walked in to Aigua and received the best congratulations and support from everyone which made it all worth it.
Aigua Sea School is by far the best sea school for professional training, I can’t fault a single element of their operation and I will definitely be returning in the near future!
Start Yachting was a really good course and we thoroughly enjoyed it, our instructor was excellent, my son was along for the ride and the instructor was really inclusive and got him involved! The boat was great and the food for lunch was good, it was a relaxed course but we learned a lot. The instructor gave me some really good advice about which course I should do next and I’ve already been looking at dates – I’d definitely recommend Matthew!
The course was really good, a few of my colleagues have worked with Aigua and Fred and it’s the right school to go to!
Thanks for your help with the ICC and VHF courses. John O’Hara was an awesome evaluator/instructor, I learned a lot from him. And, Linda was equally awesome in the theory and VHF assessment!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all you have done to help set us up as an RYA center. The manual is brilliant.
I really enjoyed the two courses I did with you. The instructors were very nice and patient. I will definitely recommend the school to anyone who wants to learn a lot and have fun while getting their tickets. It has been a pleasure. Thank you very much for everything you did for me like changing the dates until I got well and all the interest and information you gave me. Have a good day and a very busy season with lots of students.
Just passed my Yachtmaster offshore with Aigua Sea School! Highly recommend this school! Fantastic theory instructor!!
I have been really delighted to run into you and Colin, you’re extremely experienced and kind. It has been a pleasure for me to have worked by side with you to achieve a good result and I will recommend your school to all my colleagues in Palma and Barcelona.
It was a great course, we practiced the different manoeuvres a lot and Fred went through some theory with rules of the road etc. which is good for us to know as we want to rent a boat and take our kids out for the day. It was just what we needed to get us started! As there was only three students on the course it was perfect, they all got lots of time to practice everything. Fred was very kind and a really nice guy.
This time last week I was just getting to know my fellow shipmates as we set off from Palma marina for a week’s Day Skipper course.
In my case (having already done a Competent Crew course in Alicante and realising that I was nowhere near ready for the next level) all I wanted to do was spend a week on a boat in beautiful surrounding in good company.
Well Aigua Sea School delivered both my requests 100% and I have to say it was one of the best weeks I’ve had in a very long time. My fellow crew mates were all fantastic company and we were truly sad to have to say goodbye to one another at the end of the week.
We were very lucky to have a combination of beautiful weather and enough wind for some great sailing plus the highlight for me which was a magical night sail to Andratx.
Our Captain Jon Tyrell was incredibly thorough and his passion for all things sailing was obvious to see. I feel sure he also learnt a lot from spending a week with us 50 plus somethings!!
For anyone wondering if Aigua is the right sea school for them I can honestly say the week was life affirming on many levels and I couldn’t have asked for more.
I shall be back!
The whole arrangement was superb, we booked on the old website and the transition over to the new website was professional, the whole booking process was good and really quick. We were given advice on nearby hotels too which was really helpful and nice. Fred was superb, he had a gentle way of helping you understand, he went through all the information properly and generally is a really nice chap. It was a pleasure to be on the boat with him for two days. The quality of the boat was good and I now feel confident about renting a boat and being safe while having fun rather than being worried about making mistakes. I really enjoyed the slow boat handling, navigation and chart plotting, I’d be happy to add another day on the end to discuss the navigational technology and radio. Fred is a real credit to Aigua Sea School.
Very professional. Kind approach. Very informative and helpful. I will definitely be back.
Recently completed Ocean Yachtmaster with Aigua, and couldn’t be happier with the support and organisation of the sea school. Linda, John-Paul & Rachael are a great team and do a brilliant job at making you feel welcomed. Will be recommending to all!
From the big morning smiles to the organised student files, this school is at the forefront of marine education. Not only was it the most affordable yacht master ocean course I could find, but they also threw in an extra day out on the water.
Reading almanacs and filling in tables is one thing but when you’ve got a highly qualified RYA instructor showing you how to navigate with a sextant in a real world situation all the theory comes together, painting a clear overall picture of celestial navigation that would otherwise be somewhat fragmented and inapplicable.
As far as I’m aware Aigua Sea School is the only facility offering this hands on approach and I can honestly say it makes all the difference in the world.
Thank you to the instructor, the owner and the awesome administrative team for making such a complex subject seem like a breeze.
After sailing more than 50 years I thought I was a rather good sailor. Two sailing friends asked me to accompany them to do the Coastal skipper course and Yachtmaster. I’m very happy now that I did it. Now there is less stress when I have to berth with crosswind.
Now I know:
- what ship is coming or going during a night passage
- what a horn signal means
- why there is a lit or unlit buoy in the water
- how to make a passage plan
Your sea school educates in a very comfortable way.
The instructor (Nathan) never shouted to us, he always gave us positive feedback he gave, there was always time for questions or repeating weak subjects. I will recommend every sailor to do this course in your sea school. The way of teaching is absolutely professional and the human guidance unforgettable. I was the man who wanted to stop during the week but John-Paul and the VHF Teacher motivated me in a personal way and so I finished my examination. Thank you all.
I’ve had a great week and even found the exam instructive. How would that be? – because there’s always more to learn! We had a couple of windy days, which was great for practicing what you never seem to do: MOB drill, blind sailing etc. and Nathan is a pretty cool seaman. Well done! Yachting caps off! Here’s another five star.
I truly recommend Aigua Sea school to do your courses. They are very nice and professional. I did my day skipper sailing course with them and I really enjoyed it. Nathan was very patient and understanding. He is a very wise teacher. I would go back any time to do more courses with them!
Fab instruction and very well taught.
Ian, John and the whole team from Aigua couldn’t be more helpful. They genuinely want to see you pass your exams and go the extra mile to help. Couldn’t recommend enough! Thanks
I recently did my Power Boat level 2 course with Aigua Sea School, I’d had a little experience on boats before starting, but everything was explained clearly and demonstrated to perfection by Fred. The course is over 2 days which is plenty of time to practice all the maneuvers and knots, and learn the theory regarding carts and navigation. Overall I really enjoyed it, am planning on returning to get further training and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in boating.
Had a great experience doing my Yachtmaster Offshore and SRC at Aguia sea school. All the staff were very friendly and professional. It felt like they really cared about their students and helping them succeed. Look forward to my next training with them.
I am really happy, the class was even better than I expected. Thanks for tonight’s free Yachtmaster theory class.
I’m looking back to a great training week under the professional leading of Nathan. We have learned a lot of things during the program, theoretically and practical. The support of your office was also great. One of us got a dip in his motivation and a talk with your crew helped him to get on board again. The exam with Simon was also nice experience. It was tough and stressful but afterwards fine to see we where all three very confident. So thank you for the service and professional organisation of our training YM Coastal. Maybe I will join the course YM offshore soon.
I thought the course went very well. John is an excellent teacher, who conducted the training in perfect manner. He was very understanding. He was able to anticipate our needs and tailor the course to accommodate all the students to the level of their ability. John really showed us how things work, and clearly explained why. I will definitely take other courses with him further down the road. The boat, Up and Down, served us well.
There is nothing really what could have been better. John was a very friendly instructor, patient with us, but also pushing and concentrating on the important stuff. I learned a lot and had a good time. The team at Aigua was always very helpful and friendly.
All the help over the Yachtmaster was massively appreciated and handled really well, thanks!
The last week of theory was very exciting for me. I saw how my brain was rusty. It was absolutely necessary to refresh all the navigational concepts. Thanks again to Johns patience.
Excellent school, excellent people who work there, they know exactly what you need to get your Yachtmaster! Best sailing school in Mallorca!
I really enjoyed the Powerboat Level 2 course and am already looking into doing the next one, if I do I will definitely be back. Fred was very good, and even though I was a little slow to get parking, he re-demonstrated it and explained what I needed to do differently without getting annoyed.
The Powerboat Level 2 course was very good, it was really enjoyable but not too intense. Fred put a lot of emphasis on the kill cord which I liked, the small group was much better as it felt more one on one and we got plenty of time to practice the manoeuvres. The fact the course was on a weekend was perfect for me, for people who work during the week it’s much easier to do it on a weekend. Fred was an A+ instructor, very friendly and explained everything really well.
Great combination of practical & theory on the Day Skipper Sail course, it’s hard to find the pace of a group with different experience and Nathan did this very well. Thank you!
My training on the Day Skipper Sail Combo was very good, it surpassed all my expectations.
Having done both my Yachtmaster Offshore and my Yachtmaster Ocean with Aigua Sea School, I can’t recommend them highly enough. Linda and her team provide an excellent service.
My practical training for Yachtmaster Sail was really good, I’ve learned a lot, and I found man over board to be most beneficial.
The training at Aigua Sea School is nice, I enjoyed it so much. I found man overboard most beneficial on my jet ski course.
The course was really good with lots to learn, Gavin was a nice instructor who had actually worked on a Fairline before so had good knowledge that he passed on to us about the yacht in general. We weren’t familiar with the yacht before and feel like we all learnt a lot about it and how to drive it better – which is exactly what we wanted.
I did both the Personal Watercraft Proficiency and Instructor course last week with Aigua Sea School, both courses went well and I’ll be back on the jet skis soon. Thanks to Ian and Fred who were my instructors, they were both really good too.
My training at Aigua Sea School was beneficial, informative and helpful. I found the tidal theory, chart work position fixing, navigation using traditional means and night time pilotage most beneficial.
I felt very welcomed and good educated.
Thanks so much for the free class last night, I wish I had joined the Facebook page sooner, as i would have started coming a while ago… I found the class easy to be apart of, I loved how there was a mix of experience, some were relatively new to the theory and some there just as a refresher – the class flowed really well, we started with pilotage which then brought up tides, symbols, transits etc and let us discuss a variety of important factors. I walked out of the class feeling a lot more confident for my Yachtmaster theory next week which I’m thoroughly looking forward to, so thank you Linda!
Thank you for holding the class Linda, I know it’s your free time you’ve taken to do the class. It was a very helpful class on what we covered, there was all levels of students there too which added more value. The way you give your class I enjoyed, you involve everyone, instead of rattling off the answers and using illustrations, charts and getting hands on. It has given more direction in my revision I need to do for my Yachtmaster. So thank you again for taking the time.
Thanks for the workshop Linda! It was really brief and precise about ‘what is a Yachtmaster course’
Just a short note to thank you once again for all of your hard work on my behalf. I thoroughly enjoyed the week of theory, which for me was in some ways a revision week as I had already passed the theory exam 12 months ago. However I learnt a tremendous amount from Simon and his intimate knowledge of charts, chart plotting and tides was hugely impressive. I am now quite confident that I can revert to tidal flows and charts should it become necessary on my yacht. Its rather easy to become complacent and lazy when the systems on the yacht do all of the calculations for you.
Nathan was a gem. His boat handling skills are fantastic and it was interesting to observe how calm he appeared to be when we were attempting various close quarter manoeuvres. I learnt a lot from Nathan and my confidence in handling this type of yacht under power (or not as the case may be) has risen enormously.
Attended a day skipper course with Aigua Sea School last week. The instructor: Nathan was brilliant, patient and attentive he made the week very enjoyable, I passed and have him to thank for it. Aigua Sea School’s prep and organisation for the course was superb and I am looking forward to doing the Advance Power Boat course with them in the near future.
Fantastic training at Aigua Sea School! Fred is the best trainer!
The facilities were perfect, the sextants were in good condition, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The instructor was passionate, engaging & always willing to assist. The day at sea gave a good practical element to understanding the process.
Ocean theory course with Simon Bradshaw – nice classroom, great location, helpful staff, and engaging discussion… all in a very enjoyable and informative course. The hands on work was very informative i.e. taking physical sights, would appreciate more physical sight practice.
Aigua Seaschool is very professional and is providing a very good service.
Linda and her team will always take care of you and do the best so you know where you are at and make sure you are ready to pass the Yachtmaster.
I did the complete Yachtmaster Sail program with shorebased lessons and it worked out very good for me. I started the course on 8th of January with a week theory with Simon, who was great. He is an examiner as well and knows exactly for what to prepare you for. Later on I did the boot instruction with Nathan who really polished our skills and made us feel confident to pass. The examiner Phil was friendly and professional, he pushed us hard so we know more than we thought, but was very fair. I learned a lot this day and even though you are a bit nervous, at the end it is a good day sailing where you improve yourself. We all have been well prepared and all 3 of us passed the exam.
Guys, if you decide to do the Yachtmaster with Aigua you are in good hands, never the less please be aware to prepare yourself before. Don’t just arrive to the lesson and that’s it, especially if you are not a native English speaker. If you study before, you know how to behave on a boat and you do this program you have a good and fair chance to pass and you can enjoy the whole program. All the best to future Yachtmasters.
Great experience and very professional team! Also very helpful with all the steps to run!
I will recommend this academy to everybody who wants to run this tickets!
I am delighted to say that six days in Aigua classroom were extremely educative. From the day one the atmosphere was very nice and there was not a single dull moment.
Mr Simon Bradshaw was at all times keeping the course interesting and made his best effort towards us achieving the level of knowledge required for YM certificate. At the end it all payed out on our theoretical exam. So one more thanks to Simon who we had the pleasure of learning from. Practical part of the course was lead by instructor Steve Ginger. He delivery of all the elements required for the exam is spot on. He went the extra mile to make sure that the group is going to be ready for the exam. Very educative and enjoyable five days at sea. His efforts were a big part of my exam success and would definitely recommend him for further tutoring.Also the entire Aigua school staff was very helpful every step of the way so I never felt that something could go wrong. All in all it was a great week and you are my definite recommendation to future YM students.
Really good experience with the top people!! I wish you the best!!
Just passed my Yacht Master Offshore Power, amazing experience, wonderful instructors crew! See you guys next time for Ocean 🙂
Best sea school in Mallorca. Linda, John and Ian are great instructors and will help all the way. Doing my yachtmaster with them has being awesome. You can learn a lot from very experienced professionals.
We had such good training big up to Nathan and your organization 🙂
The course was really good, Nathan was a great instructor, kept training interesting, made great use of time. He made sure we understood everything! Hopefully, we will be back in the new year!
The theory week was awesome, and John O´Hara was a great instructor very patient and informative. A bit more time at the helm on the practical would of been good, but all in all the course training was great.
Very Happy with the course! will be back to do more!
The course was really good even though it was cold! Fred was great. Interested in doing my YM Ocean next!
The course was good, Fred was really nice and knows his stuff, great communication. Ill be back fro more courses!
Thank you guys On my yacht master offshore, thank you Linda for your moral support. And to John O’Hara teaching us theory you where great
I really enjoyed the PB Instructor course and am looking forward to doing more courses with Aigua in the future!
The structure of delivering a course and being taught how to deliver proper tuition was 10 out of 10 Great Powerboat Instructor course!
The course was great, Fred was really pleasant and professional, I was very pleased with the course!
I am very happy to that I passed my yachtmaster sail to power conversion exam! Thanks to Ian Poole everything went well!
I would highly recommend Aguia Sea School, the staff, JP, Dawn and Linda, are extremely helpful, John and Simon, the instructors that got me through my yachtmaster, short range radio course and my ocean are knowledgable, patient and passionate about their subjects. All in all a great operation, thanks guys!
Filled with knowledge and newly developed skills, Aigua has enabled me to flourish with confidence when at sea. Greatly recommend training for both my PWC and instructor certification!
Instructor training: A thoroughly enjoyable training course; the guys have been brilliant, learned an awful lot and really thrived on what was being taught. Very professional too. Really enjoyed it, thank you.
The course was a great course, Neil and Jim were great!
Just a quick email to thank you, Neil and Jim for a very enjoyable and interesting 4 days.
Although never an ideal setting with a boat stern too in port, we had a lot of fun and learnt an awful lot, both obviously in manning a jet ski but also primarily instructor techniques. The critics from Jim on the final day were really interesting and will have been taken on board by all involved.
The course was very good, great Atmosphere, Miguel and Nathan were great and very helpful. Really nice guys.
The course was really good, John O´Hara was really good on the theory, Really impressed!
I had a great two weeks training with you guys the instructors were fantastic as was the overall experience. I will highly recommend you to anyone considering doing any courses.
I’m really happy with the course, thinking about doing my Yachtmaster Offshore. Will be in touch next year.
The Powerboat course was fantastic, Fred was excellent!
The course was wonderful I really thought it was great, Johnny Breslin was great, time spent with everyone, more time for questions would be nice. But overall a wonderful course and I will be back next year for my yachtmaster.
We just wanted to reiterate how much we enjoyed our week with Aigua Sea School gaining our Day Skipper. It was most enjoyable, informative and importantly we got our Day Skippers! Johnny is a great instructor – whilst making the course most enjoyable, the seriousness of what we were doing was never underestimated. And as you know, the group gelled well, despite being very different individuals.
I had a great experience doing my Yachtmaster Offshore with Aigua Sea School. John O’hara was a great instructor and the support from the entire team was unbelievable! Will be back in the future!
The course was great, Fred was a good teacher and his calm demeanour made for a good learning environment.
The course was such a wonderful experience, both parts were great. Johnny was such a great teacher full of knowledge and Nathan was also great really knows his stuff!
I am definitely happy with the quality of the school and the way the school conducted the course. The course was done in a way to help us understand all aspects of the Yachtmaster!!
The quality of the preparation for the Yachtmaster provided by your school is has been very impressive And totally over all my expectations. The energy, passion and ability to get you through the theory course by Jonny, it has totally blown my mind out. Unbelievable teacher.
The patience, calm, And the way of making you learn from your own mistakes in a positive way by Nathan it has amazed me coming from such a Young guy in the practical lessons.
You have very good staff and a well-organised school. If I look for more training in the future, for sure you will see me back.
We really enjoyed the course, it was so good Fred was awesome! We will be back next year to do our Day Skipper!
Thank you aigua sea school for making the application process to do PB Level 2 so easy. Your office team were superb and were there to answer any concerns/questions I had. I would also like to thank Fred (our instructor) for being so professional, patient, and friendly and especially with a small group, I found that I could practice manoeuvres etc till I felt confident. I must admit that I was slightly nervous before doing the course as I didn’t know what to expect but that quickly disappeared and the whole weekend was fantastic, I learnt loads and had a fun time doing it! I would certainly recommend the school without fail! A huge thank you to all.
The course was very entertaining and instructive, I particularly enjoyed Survival training!
The Powerboat course was amazing! I hope to be back to do my yachtmaster!
The Course was very good, Fred was a great instructor. I will be back!
The course was great! Very useful!
Aigua Sea School offers a great service and personal care. Perhaps course material could be handed out early and more emphasis placed on pre-course preparation, but otherwise, the course was fantastic.
All aspects of this course were good, thanks for a great course!
Nathan was great with an unconfident mum and appropriate for two different needs of kids age 12 and 15, the course was Excellent!
The course was very good! Fred was great, hopefully, will do more courses in the future!
Both Fred and the PB course were amazing!
My Day Skipper Motor course was EXCELLENT!
The Day Skipper course with Jamie was not only well planned but has given me the confidence to go and improve on my newly learned skills!
Amazing! Johnny is a highly experienced and great teacher, tailored his teaching style to fit the people aboard.
The course was brilliant, the instructors were great, the school was really organised, Ian was great on the practical. I would definitely recommend Aigua to anyone wanting to do their Yachtmaster training!
I did my YM theory with Aigua and I thought the training was really good, I enjoyed the style of teaching immensely!
The theory course was awesome I loved it! I am now off to do my practical!
I thought the training with Aigua was thorough and professional, I had constant contact for a year prior to the course from the time of inquiry right through, I received loads of material to help me prepare for the course and constant support throughout., It was a tough but enjoyable experience, out of the three schools I have trained with in Mallorca Aigua is definitely the best!
My Yachtmaster Offshore training was really well organised and very enjoyable. All the instructors were awesome, Ian was super cool, John O´Hara is an amazing teacher. From the moment I walked into the school until leaving was amazing, I actually miss it!
The training was very good and well organised. Excellent equipment was available to us and the day was scheduled perfectly. Excellent and helpful office staff also. I really enjoyed the small class and structure, the level of information and Presentation from John was outstanding.
Once again we would like to thank you for a great course. Johny B was a fantastic teacher and managed to tailor his teaching style to the four very different people on board. Oh and Isla Cabrera was an absolute bonus!!
A massive thank you to all of you guys! You were amazing and I’ll definitely recommend you guys to everyone 🙂
Thank you Aigua sea school team!
We really enjoyed the course, Fred was a very calm instructor with lots of patience.
My favorite bit of the course was parking as it was more technical and it was the most important element, it actually reminded me of driving and learning from the instructor.
Fred is a great instructor, non judgmental and gave lots of tips and advice. Navigation was great and I enjoyed planning everything.
Reason for doing the course:- Career and personal.
I 100% recommend Aigua Sea School, VERY PROFESSIONAL CLEAR AND SIMPLE FROM THE START.
The course was really well run, and well organised. Fred really is an excellent instructor, knowledgeable and informative. Entertaining and fun. Clear information and excellent communication skills and such an enjoyable place to train. Thoroughly recommended and will recommend highly to anyone looking to do such a course. I’ll be coming back to Aigua for more courses.
Thanks for organising a great course – Nathan is a very capable instructor and everyone was pleased with their progress and enjoyed themselves immensely.
The course was awesome, Fred was patients and knowledgeable- Fred is the BEST!!!
Firstly, the way the booking, payment and administration was conducted left no time for concern.
We met Fred on the day who explained the day’s events in full, clearly and concisely his knowledge was first class! The test/assessment was real hands on affair, and we both felt that although it was a test there was a real sense of training as well, Fred importantly made us both feel at ease, especially when it came to the theory part, explaining and showing us what was expected! Overall a great experience which we did not want to end!!
The course was very good Nathan was excellent. I´m now interested in doing the Motor course next!!
The Powerboat Level 2 course was great, I had Fred as my instructor and he was a very knowledgeable, relaxed and patient instructor. The boat was in great condition and the content covered was very comprehensive and included plenty of time to practice each skill. Overall I was very happy with the course and would recommend you to anyone interested in doing their powerboat 2.
The experience was great, from the first time I got into the office, the team is great and familiar. True professionals!
Sailing was amazing, learning a lot minute by minute as we were having fun with our trainer Johnny, so good! Practicing the theory is the best way. I highly recommend this course, wont forget!
Thank you Aigua!
Having made the initial enquiry into a yacht master course in January, I can say I’ve had constant support throughout the entire year until I sat and passed my Motor Yachtmaster exam last week (23rd Sep). Having completed courses with several of the schools around Mallorca, I can say with confidence that the support and guidance received from Aigua was not only more professional, supportive and well communicated than the other training schools but also thoroughly enjoyable. I received pre course guidance notes, suggested reading and study materials guidance to help me through the course. One of the steepest learning curves and biggest challenges I have taken on, was made far less stressful thanks to Aigua’s student support and organised/efficient way of running their courses. I wouldn’t hesitate to continue my training with Aigua in the future.
Thanks for everything Aigua!! uiii
Just like to say, JP and Linda, appreciate all the help. Oh and Ian. We got there in the end. So happy right now. Thanks for the support and training. Loved the whole two weeks , believe it or not.
I recently took THE POWERBOAT LEVEL 2 COURSE with AIGUA SEA SCHOOL TRAINING…..The course was very informative and my instructor explained everything I needed to know, in a calm manner which helped as I was slightly nervous.
When the course finished I felt confident enough to take the boat out the following day with my family. They were that impressed that my daughter wants to take the course next year.
Firstly, the way the booking, payment and administration was conducted left no time for concern.
We met Fred on the day who explained the day’s events in full, clearly and concisely his knowledge was first class!
The test/assessment was real hands on affair, and we both felt that although it was a test there was a real sense of training as well, Fred importantly made us both feel at ease, especially when it came to the theory part, explaining and showing us what was expected!
Overall a great experience which we did not want to end!!
John-Paul and the team at Aigua organised a week’s private Catamaran charter in September 2017 for our family group, as part of which we had a five-day onboard training course with Nathan, covering Coastal Skipper for one person and Competent Crew for the rest. The whole experience was excellent and great fun at the same time. Nathan is a true professional whose assured boat handling and teaching inspires complete confidence. We were also delighted by the route which had been planned for us by Aigua which enabled us to see a wide range of locations across the south coast of Mallorca. Aigua went out of their way to arrange everything to meet our particular needs and I completely recommend them.’
The instructor Fred was fantastic and took time with each student. I thought the course layout was great, and I would definitely recommend Aigua to people in the future!
My dad and I recently completed and passed our day skipper 5 day course with Aigua sea school and i would highly recommend the school and course. The organisation and attention to assisting each of us on the course to continuously learn and improve was exceptional. Our instructor Nathan went above and beyond what I’m sure is required of him to ensure we not only learnt what was required for the course but moreover that we all enjoyed a great week in Mallorca! A great ambassador for the sea school and we hope to return for our Coastal skipper next year!
The Dayskipper course was FANTASTIC! Rich on information from direct personal experience backed up by knowledge, not of training books. Johnny is very communicative and takes time to answer all questions.
I´ll be back!
We had a most enjoyable week. The combination of instruction and a short cruise along the coast from Palma visiting delightful ports and anchorages, I think is ideal. It at the same time teaches skills and shows what may be achieved with them.
Nathan was a very patient and effective instructor as well as being good company, and he handled the jammed rudder situation very well, reassuring and updating the crew whilst fixing the problem.
George is already talking about Coatal skipper next year, so we may well be visiting the school again before long.
I thought the course was great, parking was the best part for me. hopefully I can do more courses in the future!
Thanks once again for an amazing week and helping us all achieve our day skipper certificates. I can honestly say your service has been top notch, professional & friendly from start to finish and you all went above and beyond to make it special & help with accommodation for my last minute booking.
As well as your wonderful office team Johnny was an impressive instructor. He knows how to manage time well to cover course content efficiently without drowning us in information. He gave us time to process new info and have fun whilst learning- a true asset to The company. The rest of our Crew are now keen to continue to Yacht Master after such a positive experience. We have made a great bond & hope to return together to learn with Johnny next year.
I thought the course was very good! Lots of practicing of maneuvering which was great, Ill be looking to do my Yachtmaster with you in the future!
The training was excellent thanks and Johnny B completely made the trip. I feel very lucky to have such an experienced instructor.
Also, thanks for letting us use the apartment – it was so very comfortable and convenient.
I want to say thank you one more time for the last week, the Dayskipper Training including Theory was brilliant.My instructor Johnny coached me trough the week giving me confident, its a great man and very patient Instructor.I will absolutely recommend Aigua sea school in the future. and I will definitely come back for more courses.

I just wanted to drop you and the whole team a note to say what an amazing week i had and I felt so privileged to be taught by such an experienced individual.
Johnny was so patient with me and learning through stories makes it all stick so much better. I felt so safe and extremely well looked after. I so admired the way he managed the different dynamics on the boat with 4 individuals who had never met, from different parts of the world and different ages.
You have an exceptional instructor and I hope when I return next year that I may be able to get on a boat with Johnny. Many thanks for all the email admin/communication it was extremely useful and you have a lovely team.
We had a great course, I enjoyed staying on board in the evenings mixing the course and a holiday! Greg was also a very good instructor.
Thanks very much Linda we all had a great time and fantastic instruction!

The course was great, everything went well. Fred was a very good instructor and hopefully I´ll be back in October to do my PWC!
My instructor Nathan coached me through the week, giving me confidence and belief with every task. He has ignited a desire to continue sailing and improve the grounding I have gained this week! Cant praise him or the school enough!!
I thought the course was fantastic, really appreciated all the effort by the office staff to sort out any issues, very happy with the all girl crew, The boat was also great. Nathan was fantastic, very cool and calm. We all felt we learned a great deal. A lot of care was given to us as individuals and gave us a unique experience rather a blanket course. I did the comp crew while I was on holiday and still felt relaxed while learning. I will absolutely recommend Aigua sea school in the future.
Thanks so much I really appreciate everything you’ve done! From the manner in which the course was handled to the training itself, I was really impressed! I will highly recommend you guys, via facebook and to my friends and people I meet!

Must say it was a great week sailing under Nathan’s tuition, he explained everything very well, ” a picture paints a thousand words ‘ Well done him’
I absolutely loved the course. The theory part of the day was informative and educational, and while we had to apply our theory to the practical I felt the instructor and exercises were beyond adequate and very fun.
Would like to say that I had a crazy two weeks with you. Was a really fun course to do.
First week was more of getting some new interesting stuff and learning it and on the second week practical, which is more easier, for those who have been driving or working on the boats before, but still lots of things was needed, to polish after each day of the course.
Great and super fun instructors like John and Ian that can explain you thing in lots of different and funny ways to remember. But it all depends on you, if you want to achieve something you work hard to get it!
I recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone who would love to do their Yachtmaster Offshore Course and enjoy a nice, fun vibe here in Palma de Mallorca, because it didn’t stopped me coming all the way from Thailand, meeting new people and discover something new.
Looking forward in getting more experience and coming here again to do my Yacht Master Ocean later on.
I thought the course was brilliant, Johnny Breslin was a great instructor, manoeuvring was very helpful, and I will be looking at doing other Motor courses in the future.

All up, I felt the course was easy but that only came down to fab preparation. Thank you to you and Aigua Sea School for offering to pay for the exam it means a lot. Highly recommend this school. KURT
Note from Aigua Principal: during one training day there was an engine issue onboard, whilst this is out of our control we ensured the candidates were taken care of, and the offer to cover their exam fees was just a gesture of support from us, to them. We appreciate how Kurt has complimented the team for the professional handling of the situation. All crew went on to pass 100% with an examiner we had not used before. Linda.

see you soon
5 days seemed to fly by during this fantastic week learning how to sail. For someone who has never sailed before and did not know a single sailing term, I feel I have learnt more than I could have imagined. Night sailing was definitely a highlight and sailing during the day gave way to some amazing sights. Well worth every penny- learn by doing works!
A huge thank you to the team at Aigua. They all went out of their way to help and really wanted us to succeed, which we all did! Great teaching methods and all round great experience. Can’t recommend Aigua Sea School enough. Top notch!
Can’t thank the Aigua team enough. They made the whole process easy from first signing up to passing the course. They went out of their way to help us all. Many thanks!
We had a great day! The instructor was really good and the day definitely exceeded our expectations- despite the weather! Many thanks. Georgina and Nick
Awesome experience. The staff helped me always with advise and knowledge. Giving there best to solve problems and make things easy. They have shown a high level of courtesy and hospitality.
The instructors taught us all the necessary knowledge and skills, so all of us passed the sailing and powerboat Exam right away.
The course was fantastic, and Johns teaching delivery was very understandable all in all he was great, Gavin also made the course very simple to understand also!
The training was great. John did it in a way that each participant was at any time engaged in doing/learning something. At the end the training fitted 100% to the tasks and questions we had to solve in the exam. It was a challenging experience. Also a top rating for the organisation behind. Thanks to Linda an John-Paul!
Aigua was recommended by a friend living on Mallorca and running there his regatta-training-company.
Amanda’s great medical training helped me to save a life on my recent Trans Atlantic crossing! Thank you so much. A client developed a severe seasickness right after leaving Guadeloupe. Halfway across it got so bad that I found him hyperventilating with curled up fingers and toes in his cabin. Promising wild and crazy sex (apparently it gets them focused) if managing to breathe in pace with me helped. Lying is not considered a crime if it works to safe a life! Great practical hints and tricks from a wonderful person packed with experience.
The PB course was excellent, profited from Nathan in all fields – boat handling in general, close-quarter manoeuvres, high-speed, picking up buoys, MOB situations. He is a very good instructor!
Aigua was fantastic, Nathan was a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. We had a great time living 5 days on the boat, I learned a lot, I was happy with the course and will be back to do my Yachtmaster in future.
The course was great, I enjoyed the theory and the practical was great even thought the weather was rough! I´ll be back soon!
Having used Aigua for my Yachtmaster Offshore Sail in 2008 they were my first choice for the conversion exam. I find Aigua professional and its good to see how the school has grown in the last 9 years. The Aigua team are all very friendly and helpful. All the issues I had (re changing names on previous certificates) were dealt with very quickly by JP and Sacha.
John O Hara is great as the theory course instructor. John obviously has an extensive knowledge and he has a great way of getting the points across to students and making them stick. Ian Poole made me feel very confident handling the boat. Ian is very approachable, answering all questions quickly and with good explanations. His knowledge and experience shone through making it a very enjoyable course.
We all passed so that must mean something.
I thought the course was really good, and John O´Hara was great. No complaints.
The course was fantastic, loved it! Johnny B was great with theory! Very happy and will return to Aigua in the future!
The course was top notch! Aigua is one of the best schools I have encountered and I have already recommended you to my friends. We will be back next time we are in Mallorca.
I like to thank you and Aigua Sea School for some very lovely days in Mallorca. My instructor, John, was a very competent and good instructor, and I really enjoy the week and the way you all helped me through.
I’d just like to say how enjoyable and professional the course was that Jack and I attended. And with a special mention for Nathan who was an excellent instructor to have – he offered clear, thorough and precise teaching skills.
Many thanks to you all and we look forward to doing our day skipper license with you in the future.
The course was a lot of fun! My instructor, Nathan was a good guy and was always full of positivity. That was shown in his positive feedbacks and sense of humour. The course information was satisfactory and I definitely learned a lot from it! The course was short and sweet, we had plenty of time to do our theory, practical driving of the tender and still fit lunch in. I would recommend this course to anyone who was curious about doing it.
I want warmly thank you for professional course organisation, nice family atmosphere and all supports which I got from all your team. Full engagement off your team and willingness to pass me as much as possible skipper knowledge impressed me a lot off.
Special thanks to Linda for first contact, to John-Paul for assistance during all course, Denis for all practical advice and John which convinced me to make Master Training.
The YM Ocean course was brilliant, Simon was great! I would definitely recommend Aigua!
This school is the best I have yet to experience. The Instructors were the best! they really took the time to make sure we understood, and the office staff were great. I will definitely be recommending you!
We did a private Sea Survival course and thought is was great! really useful! Thanks Linda!
I found the Sea Survival training to be very good and interactive, both the theory and practice sessions were helpful, but the practical was the most memorable.
I just completed my Yachtmaster Offshore under sail and motor. And the Yachtmaster Ocean theory. During the month i studied with Aigua i found the whole team to be professional with a high level of interest in student success.
I would like to thank Johnny, Ian and Simon for their time and efforts in assisting me in achieving my goals. As well as Linda, John and Sasha for their support. The training has enabled me to find an ideal position in yachting.
I can recommend Aigua Sea School to beginners through to circumnavigators.
I would recommend you in a heart beat! All I can say is that I am absolutely pleased with Aigua, the training material and facilities offered are more than adequate and the all the staff as well as the Instructors at “Aigua” have been very professional, friendly and helpful at all times.
I really enjoyed the experience with Aigua, Nathan was really good and explained everything perfectly, I haven’t got anything bad to say. Thank you all so much and you’ll be seeing me again! 😛

The Yachtmaster Offshore practical sail course was a great thing to experience. With John as a instructor we couldn’t be happier. He pushed us to our limits and this beeing friendly and calm all the time.
So, we were really prepared when the examiner stepped on board. No surprise that we all passed the exam. Thank you Aigua!
I thought the course was great, Dan explained everything clearly. We got lots of practice in and I´ll definitely be back.

Everything was great!
Ian was a great trainer and the course was very thorough! Myself and two brothers really enjoyed it! I´ll be back!
Course was fantastic! Coming back to do more!
The Yachtmaster course was great, and now I’m running a boat with my partner so we will def be back for future courses.
I enjoyed every minute! 5 stars to the Aigua team and the instructors! were fantastic! More use of electronics would be great although no complaints!
The course was Perfecto! I am very happy with Aigua, everyone was very professional!
The Yachmaster Course was great, and everyone was really helpful! I did a lot of pre study and found this really put me ahead when doing the theory. Ill be back!
Even though the course was extremely stressful I think Aigua did a great job! the tutor was thorough and I´ll be returning to do my YM Ocean soon
I learn more in two week with Aigua Sea School than in the two years of studying for my spanish captain licence. AWESOME. learning s much in every minute and every hour. Dedicated team. Very high level of trainers. Very happy. I will do more .. thank you Aigua.
The course was great, hope to do my Jet Ski later this year with you guys!
The Course was fantastic!! Very happy with Nathan and it honestly couldn´t of been better.
I was very happy with the course and the Tutors at Aigua Sea School and will definitely return for more courses.
The Course was very good, and the Tutor and staff at Aigua were great. The boat we used was a bit older but was suitable for this purpose. I will be going back to Aigua to do my advanced Powerboat in the future.
Johnny B was our instructor and he really did a great job to train me and to learn more. I really recommend him.
I loved the course and thought Nathan was a fantastic trainer. I will definitely be going back later in the year.
The Course with Aigua Sea School was beyond my expectations and I highly recommend them to friends and colleagues. I will be returning to Aigua in the near future to do my Day Skippers also.
I really enjoyed my experience at Aigua Sea School, the course and Tutor were perfect!
My PW2 course at Aigua Sea School was ´´PERFECTO´´ I have already booked my next course with them and will definitely return to them in the future.
I found the course to be very informative and well executed. Nathan was a very good tutor and the course was held at a good pace. Myself and my colleagues would definitely use Aigua again for courses in the future.
I found the PW11 course to be very informative and well run. Nathan was a great instructor and really knew his stuff. The weather was rougher then expected but this actually worked in our advantage giving us a more realistic experience. I will definitely return to Aigua in the future.
Thank You Aigua for an amazing week! It was great pleasure learning from John and sailing with Sam and Tim. Really pleasant exam with Colin! See you soon
Extremely professional, organised and very fun. Great people. The classroom sessions were at correct pace and every question had a very easily understandable answer. Definitely the pre-class workshop are important to attend. Highly recommended.
Dear Aigua Sea School Crew,
I would like to thank you all for your help during my Yachtmaster Offshore. You guys have been great! The school facilities and staff are 100%!
Would like to thank Johnny B specially, couldn’t have done this without him. He is by far the best teacher ive ever had, he is so straight forward and makes things very clear and easy to understand, he’s a hell of a man and gives his whole heart into helping his students. Love that guy!
and of course thank you: Linda, Sasha and JP, didn’t get to spend much time with you guys, but still think you’re great fellas and super efficient. Thanks again!
Excellent, VERY INFORMATIVE and PROFESSIONAL. The most beneficial parts of the training was doing lots of practical drills and the instructor was very patient.
Excellent, informative and professional!
Very Professional and the best bits were the close quarter manoeuvre and berthing..
Thanks to all the team at Aigua, i had a great time completing my Yachtmaster. Thanks to all the great instructors and thanks for the continued support from the rest of the team. Highly recommended.
Brilliant service from start to finish!
All the instructors on the Yachtmaster Offshore are passionate about what they do and look to get the most out of everyone they teach. Class sizes are small and it really gives the chance to have some focus on what you need to learn most. Even with heavy weather delaying the practical week there were no issues and Linda and the team were more than accommodating. I couldn’t recommend Aigua Sea School more.
The last weeks I did the Yachtmaster offshore at Aigua Sea School, I will recommend everyone this two weeks course by Aigua. From the begin till the end I felt welcome at the school and they offered also free workshops in the night who were really useful. The way how they taught and give us extra help where we needed it. The whole team of Aigua were professional and on the spot all the time.
Big thanks to Linda and the rest of the team and hope to see guys for the next courses!
What a great day today with Steffi Lorena & Matt Gelling, we were invited by John-Paul Ryan at Aigua Sea School to attend today’s powerboat instructor course (as volunteer students) and had a blast of a time. The instructors were very professional at what they did showing us all that happens on this course, it was a lot of fun within a controlled environment so we learned and had fun.. They offer the full 2 day course and ANYONE can join it, you then get a 10m boat licence after.
Had a fantastic day today out on a RIB training, it was superb, very informative and very professional! Thanks so much!
Johnny is a very inspiring instructor. He has very good knowledge and put lots of enthusiasm to share them with everyone. He is patient and always supporting. His teaching methods are very appreciate through the all week. I highly recommend him to do the yachtmaster preparations to be confident and ready for the exam.
And thanks a lot again to John Paul and Sasha for your presence, help and support. It has been very appreciated the all time.
Best regards and all the best to everyone!
Hello, I would just like to thank the Aigua Sea School for helping me achieve my Yachtmaster Offshore, something that has been a goal of mine for many years. Although I have spent most of my life at sea in one way or another I had a big mental hangup with regard to the theoretical aspect of the course, especially with English not being my first language. Johnny Breslin was the best teacher I could have imagined and managed to straighten out a lot of things for me, as well as give me the necessary confidence boost to get through the course. The weather was completely against us, but we persevered and feel tougher for it. I can highly recommend Aigua Sea School and especially their teaching staff.
Nathan was a great instructor, we learnt a from him in the short time and he made the day wholly enjoyable please pass on my thanks to him.
I just wanted to say Thank you so much for all your support and help in getting me through my Yachtmaster Motor – 5th- 18th Dec.
Firstly, the welcome to your centre was very warm and re-assuring.
Secondly, John was brilliant in our shore based week, very helpful, patient and professional.
John No.2 was a great support also, on our trips to the local coffee shop; also reassured us and always answered any questions even tho he had his own students.
Gavin – otherwise known as Kevin to our group; was brilliant, knowledgeable and patient for our prep- practical week, not only did i learn a lot, but he made me feel more confident in what i was doing and believe in myself and also made it FUN!
Both weeks were absolutely fantastic and I would recommend Aigua Sea school to anyone who is looking to do any courses in the near future.
I passed! yay So…..Thank you again Linda and Your Team!
Massive thanks to all of you guys. Great teaching and support during my YM Offshore and YM Ocean courses I did with you. I was well prepared and confident during both exams. I’ve reached the final step in the RYA ladder. . I’m definitely coming back to Aigua
I can not describe to you guys how happy I am. Among others is it proof to me that you can also achieve things when you are not twenty or thirty anymore. However, it is quite clear that I could not have achieved this without the expert training of John and Gavin and the support of the rest of Aigua Sea School. You have done such a great job and I have appreciated greatly your helpfulness. I am sure we will see each other again and I am already looking forward to this. In the meantime I send you all my best wishes for the coming Holidays, Merry Christmas and cheers to a great 2017.
Thank you Aigua! Very professional and friendly team, a big thanks goes to Johnny… The best teacher I ever had, couldn’t ask more, he is a great Seaman. Thanks to turn us in Yachtmasters! See you soon Aigua!
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you and your team for getting Andres through his YMO. It hasn’t been an easy journey for him particularly with English being his second language. I am fully aware that you have really persevered, put in the extra time and offered him some outstanding guidance along the way which I know he has very much appreciated. When he needed to sit the practical again you managed to get him onto the next course very soon after the first attempt – once again this shows how accommodating you have been.
From my side, it’s a huge relief that he has now got his YMO.
Once again thanks to you all very much for taking such good care of Andres.
Captain: S/Y Ganesha
Johnny is an amazing instructor, he took care of all of us and we could not be more ready than we were. Finally Aigua Sea School is very friendly and professional I enjoyed a lot do my course here Thank you for all!
I came to Palma to pursue my Yachtmaster Offshore certification not knowing what to expect, thankfully the Aigua Sea School made it a wonderful experience; from the first email to the follow up phone calls the staff had all the details and logistics covered, my instructor, John O’Hara was simply amazing, very knowledgeable, ready to push us on our weak points to get us fully ready….and ready we were as we all passed our YM Offshore. I fully recommend Aigua to everyone looking for an outstanding school to further develop their sailing skills and we can always improve our skills.
Hey! Many thanks.
I’ve enjoyed every minute of this last two weeks. I can say I’ve learned a lot and I want to congratulate you because you made us work very hard, you always think about something we can do or improve.
You teach in a way I like a lot and I really loved your “good guesses”. What i learned I would never forget, that’s for sure, just the opposite as previous lessons or exams I’ve made in Spain.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, big weight of my shoulders! Training has always been great! and even better this time. The examiner was great also. Hope you guys are well and thanks again.
Sea Survival was a fantastic course! We all loved and enjoyed!! Thank you so much for putting together for us especially for the boys! We really had a great time and I hope more families will have a great practice as we did 😉
Thanks to Aigua staff for the last two weeks YM training. Especially to John O´Hara. He was brilliant in Theory and Practice! I also would like to thank Andy the examiner. He did it really good.
I recommend 100%!!!
Thanks for a challenging, interesting and tiring 14 days of training, which led to a ”PASS” from my RYA examiner Andy. I’m happy with that. Thanks and regards.
Very happy with the course and a great positive outcome ! Thanks Jamie for a comprehensive prep week and everyone in the office for all the help.
Excellent, very well prepared. Instructor very professional with excellent teaching skills. Well done Aigua. I will strongly recommend this school, and also I would like to do more courses with you.
Still buzzing from passing and getting it all over and done with!
John was awesome in the classroom, really made things simple and I felt like it all flowed well. The practical week was great with Gavin, really good guy and clearly really knows his stuff. His teaching was good, just lets you get on with it and then offers tweaks and hints afterwards which is what I felt worked with me. The examiner, Phil, was great, tough, but had some good exercises that I felt pushed me and got me thinking.
Thanks again for all your help Linda, I’ll be recommending everyone to come to Aigua.
I successfully completed my Yachtmaster Offshore with Aigua. It was a great couple of weeks both on the water and in the classroom. I was lucky enough to have John for both weeks. The course was well organised and laid out. I would highly recommend Aigua! Thanks so much guys.. Happy sailing.
A lot of solid, practical experience delivered by Johnny in an engaging style .. memorable lessons. Excellent!
Excellent instructor: engaging, enthusiastic and patient. Loved every minute of the course.
Many thanks to you and the team for a wonderful week!
I just wanted to thank you again for a fantastic course. Your teaching method was superb and even at the times when I was about to give up you always inspired me to carry on!
Honestly the best course i have ever done. I learnt more about sailing with John in the practical week then i had in 9 years in the industry. Thanks guys.
I had a great time doing my 2 week YM course with Aigua Sea School! All the staff were super friendly and helpful and made the whole thing enjoyable and stress free. Thanks!
The course was fantastic, my instructor was clear and informative. Really good value for money and I am glad to have my certificates from the best school in the Med!
First of all I want to say thanks to all the Aigua team for all their impeccable teaching and help. John, the instructor that got us thorough the course, is the best teacher I’ve met so far. Highly recommend Aigua sea school and John as a teacher. With these guys, passing the course is almost guaranteed. Apart from that, the attention, dedication and patience given to their students makes everything easier. Thanks again Aigua, wouldn’t have been so confident without you. A pleasure, see you soon!
YM Sail: I’m really happy with Aigua Sea School – they are very easy to work with and they have a VERY good team, I’m so happy to do all my courses in Aigua Sea School, John, as a teacher, he is one of the BEST teachers I ever ha. VERY very happy with all the team thanks AIGUA SEA SCHOOL.
I would love to gladly, and highly, recommend Aigua sea school in Palma de Mallorca who took me through theory and practical training for Yacht Master OffShore in the highest standards possible. Their attention to every student and support was remarkable. I gained so much from this training I couldn’t thank to the Aigua team enough! Very professional, helpful and active.
The Day Skipper sailing course was great! Johnny had as much patience as needed for every one attending and guided us masterly through all the practice and theory needed from a very basic level to the Day Skipper requirements. Plus, we had a lot of fun ☺ Thanks again to all the Aigua Sea School team!
Very happy with Aigua Sea School for both theory and practical week. Will highly recommend Aigua Sea School for anyone wanting to take their Yachtmaster training in Palma.
Big thanks to the team at Aigua from start to finish in helping me complete my YM offshore. A school that cares and is with you all the way. Would advise anybody to get there courses done here, thanks Linda, JP, Sasha, John and Jamie
A truly great course: instructors are highly knowledgeable and teach in a way that’s easy to understand and to build up the skills required. Yachtmaster passed! Highly recommend.
I took this training as it was required to commercially endorse my Yachtmaster Offshore (also done at Aigua). I ended up with so many valuable insights that I would recommended it to anyone.
The Sea Survival course has a morning part focusing on the theory and an afternoon part which consists of practical drills in the swimming pool. You will experience first hand how to deploy a life raft, get on it dry and wet, try to get someone in need into it and much more. All taught by Linda in a very professional and accurate way as usual. Hopefully I will never have to experience this in real-life but, should that happen, I feel this course has prepared me properly for it. Thank you Aigua and thank you Linda!
Excellent! Nothing else to say .. just excellent!
Great Day Skipper motor course. Practical training was most beneficial. well organised, enough time to cover everything, and yes, highly recommend to others.
I must say this was one of the most amazing and challenging experiences i have ever had but it would be nothing without our instructors John and Johnny and the way they transferred their knowledge to us, and the way the whole Aigua team cared for us even more that we were looking for. I want to say a big thank you to everyone and thank you again for your help and dedication to your students. I will be coming back for more courses for sure. You have my very best opinion and wishes.
Just back from few weeks of sailing on our own boat in Croatia, which was great! I am missing the sea very much already. By the way, the boat handling and crew managing skills I learned during the Yachtmaster Offshore training at Aigua proved very useful during my holiday. I received appreciations from everyone about having become totally confident in docking and handling the boat in very close quarters, but also much clearer in letting everyone know what I need from them while getting ready and performing a manoeuvre.
Great Day Skipper motor course … informative, interesting. Great fun as well. I think for Day Skipper the whole syllabus was fantastic.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks following the recent Day Skipper course. Nathan was great and the quality of teaching and facilities surpassed my expectations. Knocked spots of some of the RYA offerings back in the UK.
Excellent – the on the boat training especially coming alongside and parking were most beneficial.
Really great fun. Was educational but enjoyable which was a great combination.
Excellent trainers, dedicated to detail with comprehensive teaching and proven knowledge (practical and theory).
The Own boat tuition training we received from Jamie on Monday & Tuesday was really excellent, a good idea of his to split the days training into 2 x mornings . A very pleasant and patient young man and very good at explaining things. Thank you at Aigua Sea School for finding such a good teacher.
Hi Linda, thank you for the recent Own boat tuition sailing course which my wife, son and son in law completed, they all had a great time and I can see the benefits immediately, Dennis had an easy manner about him and made them all feel comfortable, we will use your company again, training and knowledge are very important components so we can enjoy our sailing in a safe and respectful manner . Thanks again and best wishes . Richard
The Powerboat training with Aigua Sea School was superb; with a strong emphasis on safety throughout, the trainer, Nathan, managed to deliver an exceptional course covering the complete syllabus and make it fun, what an achievement! I will highly recommend the professional services of Aigua Sea School again and look forward to training through to Advanced with them.
Did the Instructor course as well. It was great in all aspects from start to finish! 🙂 Thank you!
I attended the Basic Sea Survival course organized by Aigua Sea School in July 2016 and saying it was an extremely positive experience is an understatement. From the moment I first contacted them, they went out of their ways to find the optimal solution for me. They actually ran the course despite the fact that there were not enough attendees, just because I urgently needed the course. That is the level of customer service they provide.
The course itself was great. The first (theoretical) part was extremely educational and at the same time really interactive. Linda (the instructor) made sure we followed and understood everything by asking us many small questions throughout the presentation. It is clear that she knows exactly was she is talking about as she gave us many tips from first hand experiences. What I especially liked was her ability to keep the mood light and relaxed but at the same time making us realize that the topic itself should be taken extremely serious.
In the second part we performed a wet drill in the nearby pool. We had more than sufficient time to practice all the necessary manoeuvres over and over again until we were confident enough to performing them safely. And for some things its good to have a chance to try them more than once!! However, what really impressed me was the fact that we were able to self-inflate real cutting-edge life jacket in order to see how it actually performs. Not every school gives you this opportunity! Similarly as in the presentation part, I really enjoyed the environment Linda created as it made it easy to ask any question.
Overall I strongly recommend the Aigua Sea School, not just for the course I did, but for any course they provide, as it is evident that they really take care for the people they teach and this is not just a job for them. They really go out of their ways to help and satisfy any needs you might have!
Wonderful day at sea with a good tutor (Katie) and a dynamic group of students. Solid learning of basic maintenance, handling and safety related information when it comes to riding PWC. Thank you for yet another great course!
Thank you again for an excellent course. Nathan is an asset to you. He is a knowledgeable, skilled and patient teacher.
I have learnt a huge amount from my course at the Aigua Sea School over the past couple of weeks and the quality of teaching has been absolutely brilliant. I could not recommend Linda highly enough. She was a great teacher for the whole group – patient, professional, extremely knowledgeable. She was always willing to help with any questions along the way and has a vast expertise on all the topics we covered. I will definitely be returning for other courses in the future. Thanks again!
Excellent, safety navigation and course planning was the best part!
Nathan was excellent, very clear in explaining and very patient! Highly recommended and will be back for more!
I was most impressed with the online teaching and support for the Radio course, and when sitting the exam I found the school to be very efficient, professional and helpful including providing helpful feedback on questions raised during the exam and correcting mistakes. I strongly recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone looking for solid RYA training.
Will Morris, Skipper Fidelis (Amel 54’)
With 200 years of sailing experience between us with an exceptional great training week from Aigua instructor Jamie, we just couldn’t fail the RYA offshore standards. We did it! Congrats to my fellow Yachtmasters Dirk and Marcelo and my favourite fellow Lady Captain Gretchen. Thank you Linda, John and Katie for your good advice.
It was my pleasure to follow the training for both Yachtmaster Offshore Sail and Power with Aigua Sea School. The course was just perfect for me. I have not any suggestion in an area where you can improve. Linda and all the staff are very professional.
I’ll recommend you in the future around my friends in France.
I have done my Yachtmaster Offshore with Aigua and it was really great. John made the theory part of the course a piece of cake and the instructor did an amazing job on the yacht. Also big thanks to Linda, Katie and JP. I’ll definitely come back to Aigua next time I need to go back to classroom. Thank you very much guys!
I am to thank you and John for your hard work, patience and time.
Thank you very much for your consideration, the learning, the experience that has been handed over to me in the last two weeks thru your school.
Secured and well organised, we had a great jet ski training this Tuesday in Port Adriano! Thank you Katie for your nice explanations and a lot of fun too! Big like!!? Andreas
Gotta love Aigua.
They managed to put together a lastminute.com personalised PWC course to get us through the lack of licence issue. On the day in question the weather wasn’t playing and conditions outside of the marina were of boat breaking quality. We persevered as long as was safe, but after the coastguard came in towing a broken tourist launch, we abandoned and retreated to the coffee shop.
As we hadn´t managed to prove our skills, Katie worked her best around our tight schedule to accommodate a re-run. Second time round the weather was back to the usual Mallorca Azure and so we ran through the missing elements with speed and ease. Katie’s happy and positive disposition made the whole the process a breeze and far more fun than we had bargained for.
This is the second course I have done with Aigua and I cannot fault them for their whole setup.
Love them. Thank you Aigua…. I’ll be back!
I did recommend one of my girlfriends friends to Aigua, Dustin Grove, and I will continue to do so in the future. All courses ran smoothly with no interferences. I had great communication and guidance from all my instructors. Everyone at the office was so welcoming and helpful. If I need further courses whilst I am in the area, Aigua will be my first choice.
Thanks so much

This course was perfect. Instructor was very helpful.
An extremely knowledgeable and confident instructor, with great teaching/coaching skills and technique. Nathan made sure we understood what we had to do in any situation, and then let us take full control, but was close by to offer guidance if, and when needed. All information received from Aigua Sea Schools was clear and concise, and any questions were answered fully and promptly.
We learned new skills at a pace that suited us, and were able to build on those skills as the week went on. The yacht was spacious, modern and in good working order. A well thought out and comprehensive set of initial food provisions were provided by Aigua Sea School to get us on our way.
I definitely felt way more experienced and confident in my sailing boat handling skills by the end of the week, and based on my experience would fully recommend Aigua Sea School with no reservations.
Completing my Yachtmaster Sail preparation and the exam with Aigua was a fun and rewarding experience from the beginning to the end. We have all received plenty of personal attention throughout the week from John, who has also made sure that we use our time effectively. I am especially grateful to him for grilling me on rules, lights & shapes, weather, and other topics all week whenever I wasn’t on the helm, which helped me brush up on some of my theory that had slightly faded over the years. I also owe thanks to Linda for her help and advice on how to get started in my new capacity. Happy days!
This course is fun and gives you skills you can’t teach yourself. John was patient, knowledgeable and good fun. Small class meant we were always active and learning new skills.I highly recommend Aguia Sea School if you are looking at marine courses. The courses I took all delivered and gave good value for money.
I’m a complete novice to sailing but this course has meant I am now confident enough to step onto a sail yacht and operate safely without embarrassing myself. Sam is a first class theory teacher making a tricky subject understandable, has massive patience and a great teaching style. Nathan is an enthusiastic, skilful sailor that is a great communicator and kept us safe all week. Small class sizes meant everyone got maximum contact time.I highly recommend Aguia Sea School if you are looking at marine courses. The courses I took all delivered and gave good value for money.
VHF Radio: This online course was really engaging. Very good use of graphical interaction and allows you to go at your own pace. I now feel confident enough to use VHF equipment if the need arises. The classroom exam was actually quite fun!
An intense but enjoyable week of YM prep. Learned how to deal with many challenges and feel comfortable and in control of the yacht. Our instructor John was amicable at all times, and had no shortage of manoeuvres to practice – even in light winds. A worthwhile week, which resulted in me passing my YM Offshore exam.
Morning Aigua Sea School, I wanted to thank you for the PWC course, it was done in a really in depth but fun way. Katie, my instructor explained everything brilliantly and answered any questions I had. Furthermore, it was really exciting to see the El Toro coastline and its beauty. Thank you so much.
The course was really wonderful, and it was run really smoothly.
I think the course leaves you feeling very happy with your abilities to drive tenders, and it just requires person practice to get better! 🙂
Thank you again for an excellent course last week. Nathan did a fantastic job of demonstrating and coaching everyone in the group and gave us all the opportunity to put the teaching into practice without taking over control which is a particular skill and credit to him.
The balance between developing sailing skills and learning more about handling the boat under power was particularly good for me. Nathan’s depth of knowledge and obvious experience was excellent and he was consistent in the advice he gave which really helped build knowledge and confidence.
The boat and equipment was fine and the destinations around the island were great. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable week and the course delivered exactly what I wanted from it. Thanks again!
Guys thank you so much. I’ve passed my YM Offshore exam. Great help from everyone. I highly recommend Aigua Sea School. The office team Linda and Katie are very helpful and John O’Hara and his teaching skills are legendary.
A great experience !! Aigua are a very competent and professional Sea School. I totally recommend using them for all aspects of marine training.
Sam was personable friendly and well informed.
He delivered the training we requested and left the pupil feeling more knowledgeable and confident and competent! Many thanks.
Instructor Ian was very good and passionate about course, the course it self was fun and covered a broad range of regulations and common sense.
Both welcoming and professional in and out of the office even willing to help long after working hours.
My experience on the water was superb with Pete – our instructor – who was both Knowledgeable and patient despite it being my first time driving a tender.
I would highly recommend AIGUA sea school to anybody looking to obtain maritime qualifications and will certainly using them myself in the future.
I thought the Day Skipper Back to Back Course was great.. it really surpassed my expectations. It was challenging but was delivered by two very good, experienced instructors.
The theory topics very covered thoroughly and tried to cover as much as possible in the first weekend prior to our sailing / practical.. It was tough going at the time but exactly the right approach.
Nathan did the practical sailing sessions, again a very good teacher.. He was very keen to get everybody involved on the boat from first thing in the morning right through the day. He was very clear in his instructions and made sure all tasks were understood by all no matter how many time he had to take me through things! A very patient guy.
I would definitely recommend the Aigua School and be looking to book another course in the summer.
I just completed my Yachtmaster Offshore the past two weeks at Aigua Sea School & I recommend it 100%. Awesome teaching in the theory and also the practical sailing week. Great people, very friendly and also professional.
My summary of the training I’ve got from you guys is very positive. Just to mention what and why I liked it so much: It fulfilled my goals: Get more hands on experience in practical aspects. I gained confidence in all aspects I was lacking: harbour manoeuvres, MOB, sail trimming, etc..I could learn from everybody there: the other students were amazingly experienced and John was making all of us improve at our own level; it was fun. When I have the correct mileage I will certainly keep Aigua Sea School in mind.
Great experience with Aigua. Did my Yachtmaster with them and will 100% recommend them. In the future, when i need to do any other courses i will be going straight back them. I learned more in two weeks than I learned all my life at school. Very professional school.
Just a note of thanks for organising the week of Own boat tuition for us with Dennis.
We are delighted to have been tutored by a true professional, who has taught us so much about sailing, safety and our boat, so we can really start to enjoy our boating experience properly
Everyone has grown in confidence as the week has progressed, and not only has Anna and Joe been rewarded with successful completion of the course, but we all have so much confidence now in our knowledge both as individuals and a team – all thanks to Dennis and his expertise and patience.
Just a brief note to say thanks for the excellent course. From the moment I first contacted you to decide which course to take, you have been very helpful, profession and supportive.
A very special thank you to Ian – I cannot remember a time when I have learned so much in a short time and in a most enjoyable and satisfying way. Ian took us through the course in a most professional way making each minute both instructive and enjoyable. He is obviously very knowledgeable – but not all knowledgeable people make good instructors! Ian is a very special guy and I will remember the course for many years to come!
Thank you all once again, Chris Newton
I enjoyed the Personal Watercraft Proficiency course very much, which was held in professional way and with friendly atmosphere.
I really enjoyed the RYA Personal Watercraft Proficiency course I took on Thursday 14th April. The course was really informative and I learnt things that will help me with riding a jet ski safely for both myself and others.
Katie was very helpful and a really good instructor, she explained everything and Although learning, I was also having a great time.
The ski I used and the other equipment was all clean and in excellent condition.
I will be recommending Aigua Sea School to my friends.
Thank You for a Great Course
The training was excellent – We all gained confidence with manoeuvring in tight spaces, boat handling, anchoring ( I really never thought I would be able to “park “ the boat …. but I did !!! )
Sam was a GREAT teacher, extremely patient and unflappable. We all enjoyed his method of teaching. He gave us lots of handy tips and was great to have onboard. We really could not have asked for a better instructor.
Thank you all very much for a great experience – the day skipper motor course exceeded all our expectations and was thoroughly enjoyable.
Dear Linda, the course was exactly what we needed in relation to learning how to sail. We found Jamie patient and willing to pass on the knowledge that we needed to complete the course. During the course Katie took everything in her stride and always available, even in the evenings. We found her bubbly and enthusiastic and a good representative for your company. We would certainly recommend your company and Jamie and Katie.. many thanks for allowing us to achieve our goal. Kind regards Alan and Kim
I loved everything about the course, Katie made the whole thing very easy to understand by breaking and explaining each lesson which made it a breeze to pass. If she hadn’t of told me it was her first time instructing solo I would never have guessed it. She was very professional! I feel very confident on a jetski now, considering it was my first time. The lessons we had to do gave me a lot of confidence and knowledge on how to manoeuvre the obstacles, reverse, tow, rescue etc. I feel like a real pro!
Secured and well organised, we had a great jet ski training this Sunday in Port Adriano!
Thank you Katie for your clear explanations and good energy!
Big up! See you soon for Power Boat Level 2!
Thank you and the sea school for providing me with a great experience during my ocean yachtmaster training. I found the instructors to be very knowledgable and helpful, and quick to provide extra explanation if needed. The materials were also very detailed which made it easy for everyone to follow along and keep up with the pace. I would definitely recommend Aigua to anyone who asked.
Thanks Aigua Sea School, specially Linda, John and crew. Beautiful sailing and training experience. Thanks for the professionallity and good offices, I´d learn a lot, above all, I´d enjoy it.
Thank you Aigua Sea School! As expected from before, you delivered a very good YM Ocean course. The one day at sea make a real difference to most other Sea Schools out there. Keep up the good work and thank you!
The course was very enjoyable. We learnt a lot in one day the instructor Katie was very helpful and explained everything fully. I would highly recommend anybody looking to do the course to do it with Aigua (maybe in the Summer though haha).
Great Course! Excellent explanation, Nathan was really professional an qualified! I have got what needed to know and more. Thanks so much.
As for the Ocean course, it was great. I couldn’t have asked for more if I’m honest. Simon explained things very clearly and went to lengths to ensure that each of us were comfortable with each stage of the syllabus.
As for the ‘front of house’….the climate was always spot on!!
The info given prior to arrival and the flexibility on my first morning was very much appreciated, and there was always a smiley welcome every morning. What more could I have wanted?!
All in all, a great course. Thank you very much.
Had an awesome couple of weeks with Aigua completing my yachtmaster offshore, would definitely recommend! The girls in the office are extremely helpfully and always smiling. The instructor’s are also very friendly are their teaching methods and knowledge was first class. Would not hesitate to recommend and will be back to continue further training. Thanks Aigua team!
I really enjoyed the course, I felt Nathan really went out of his way to explain things and to make things challenging and not boring. He was always assertive and incredibly calm when there was a risk involved.
Attention from the front office was very helpful and effective.
I would recommend this course to everyone wanting to get a powerboat level 2.
I would just like to say thank you to you and your team for looking after us.
From my first point of contact, you bent over backwards to accommodate our needs, we had virtually no experience in the world of motor yachts. You advised us on what we needed to do pre course and sorted this out for us via the internet. We gave you a very short time scale to put the Day Skipper practical course together and you meet our needs without hesitation.
Sam came to our boat on the first morning and we all took to him very quickly, he was super relaxed and explained things to us in layman terms which was great as some us had not set foot on a motor yacht before.
Safety first was the order of the day as he walked us step by step through the boat and its safety features. He made sure we all understood each step before moving on to the next.
We then came to the handling of the boat which is daunting to say the least to a bunch of newbies. Again Sam was patient and methodical, letting us make mistakes and not jumping in but explaining how the boat works and only taking over if one of us had a brain lock.
Our first trip out was Portals to Palma where we berthed for the night, Sam booked us a table at an excellent restaurant in Palma.
VHF radio exam came next at your offices. You looked after us very well and explained in detail how the VFH worked and the advantages of been able to use the radio in a competent fashion.
We all know we still have a long way to go but knowing you guys are on the end of the phone makes life a little less stressful on our early voyages.
I would recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone starting out or brushing up on their skills.
Hooray! Just finished the Royal Yachtmaster Coastal with the world greatest sailing coach, John, and the warmest welcoming crew on earth Katie and Principal Linda. Two great weeks of learning for sailing means a lifetime of continuous studying… I’ll head on for the Offshore as soon as I’m no longer unsure! ; )
Hola. buenos dias, el curso estuvo muy bien ,el instructor muy preparado y agradable .por mi parte recomendaria esta escuela a otras personas interesadas en sus cursos
Hello, Good Day. The Powerboat course was very good and the instructor was very prepared and nice person. I would recommend this school to anyone who would like to do courses.
Great course enriching experience, Nathan explains everything clearly and answered each of my questions. the attention of every one of the people in the school is excellent.
Aigua Sea school is a truly excellent school that gets the most out of its students. My experience with them was really positive – Linda and Katie in the office were very friendly, informative, and they go that extra mile to make sure that you are in a position to succeed.
John our Instructor was great, a very patient man who helped identify any skills I needed to work on, and coached me through them. He is a natural teacher and I picked up a lot from him over the week. They are very professional group, and I will definitely be returning to Aigua for any future training. I recommend them, without hesitation, to anyone looking for a training or examination provider in Palma.
I wanted to thank you for all the information and good service, especially to thank our Instructor thanks to his knowledge and was able to approve my conversion.
The theory week with John O’Hara was excellent. John is very caring and he really sees everyone and adapt his classes so that students with different experiences will be able to learn and improve. He also does the little extra, taking time after the classes are finnished to give extra training and help for those who needs it.
The practical week with Trevor was good as well. Trevor is a very skilled and experienced trainer but not as organized as John. After completing my Yachtmaster Offshore with Aigua I am overall pleased and I would recommend them to upcoming Yachtmasters.
Very pleased to admit that I decided to do my Yachtmaster Offshore with Aigua Sea School. Every employe I came across at Aigua gets involved and helping you to get through the course towards your exam. Having a keen interest from the school in your back makes you as a student to keep focused and motivated during your studies. I look forward to come back to Aigua and meet everyone again for my Yachtmaster Ocean.
The full experience was a 10!! Katie advised me really good in the office, and Nathan was an awesome instructor. He make the classes really easy to understand, and let you drive from the very beginning. All the activities were focused on what a powerboater is going to do in his near future, and you learn them having fun.
I highly recommend it.
Huge thanks to Aigua Sea School, to the instructors and office ladies for a memorable and enjoyable course. The instructors were very knowledgable and beyond supportive in their style of teaching, putting in time to provide extra tuition when asked. Im confident and excited to use the knowledge and skills learnt during the Yachtmaster course and Im looking forward to going back to Aigua Sea School for more courses in the future. Thanks again.
Own boat tuition for direct Powerboat Assessment: Nathan was very good, informative, friendly and clearly a very capable instructor.
I had my life’s best experience with Aigua. Top class instructors – Sam and Trevor, managing to give me incredible amount of knowledge in just 2 weeks. Amazing organisation, team work, so supportive. I felt like home with such support, and even when I got so sick during course, I got even more support.
All in all, I would recommend anyone who looks for a boost of knowledge to work with Aigua. I look forward working with you guys for my next level Ocean! Thank you for everything!
Excellent theory instructor, I would recommend this to everybody who wants to pass his yachtmaster exam. In 5 days time all the theory you need is put into your brain.
Hi Linda , Katy, and all the team,
All i can say about your school is that it was the best course i have ever attended, with the nicest teachers which actually got us to understand the things they teach which is very important to me ! Also the cruising instructor Trevor was outstanding and i felt very prepared when i attended the exam, also that all six from my course have passed the exam talks for itself.
For me its a fact i will do my next course only with you guys!
Thank a lot.
I completed my Yachtmaster Sail course with Aigua Sea School I found the theory week was very complete and with very good tuition. Aigua provided all the tools necessary in becoming confident in my sailing and navigational skills. From start to finish Aigua delivered very professional advice and tuition. I would highly recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone who is interested in completing their Yachtmaster.
Ten out of ten all round. I am very happy with my whole experience with Aigua Sea School. From my first contact everyone has been amazing, reception, the week of theory, the practical week and the exam. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
Hice mi yachtmaster con Aigua Sea School y os queria comentar que el barco Honeymoon … Estupendo. El instructor… Insuperable, y ni que decir de vosotras? tambien estupendas. y queria agredeceros por toda la ayuda que me habeis dado a lo largo del curso.
I did my Yachtmaster with Aigua Sea School and I just wanted to say that the yacht Honeymoon … Great . The instructor … I couldn’t have asked for better , and what to say about the girls? just amazing
and I wanted to thank you for all the help you have given me throughout the course.
After already doing my theory exam elsewhere I came to Aigua for a refresh and practical course. The theory instruction was like a breath of fresh air and the instructor had a great way of breaking everything down to make it so simple and easy! I then went straight into the offshore sail practical with Peré who was again, amazing. He really put us through our paces and explained not just how to do something but why we were doing it. He put on pressure to make us feel like we were being examined and when it came to exam day everything was automatic and second nature. I can’t thank the instructors and the team at Aigua enough for getting me through my long overdue Yachtmaster. I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking about doing courses here in Palma.
Thanks for the great preparation for the Yachtmaster Sail. John was an awesome teacher, very efficient, patient and with a great capacity to transmit that huge amount of information we had to remember during the two weeks.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Yachtmaster Theory course. John our instructor passed on his wealth of knowledge and was very patient. It was good preparation for the practical and exam which I will be back to complete next year with Aigua.
Aigua Sea School exceeded all my expectations during my Yachtmaster course. John was amazing throughout the theory classes and very patient, ensuring he spent time with everyone. Trevor was also amazing throughout the practical week, ensuring everyone spent ample time driving the boat and building up their confidence. This left me feeling well prepared and relaxed for my exam.
Highly recommended, 11/10, 3 thumbs up 🙂
From first contact I felt like my career development and success was personally important to Linda. Encouraged all the way, her personal touch and professionalism helped me develop from dong a personal water craft proficiency to instructor, then onto YM Offshore! Linda has a wealth of information and selects the best team to support her business and again, personally ensures they too are happy. On a practical note, we had access to all the latest technology, equipment and information. Definitely the best school in the island and possibly the Med. Thanks Aigua – Linda & team.
Level 2: Many Thanks. A very good experience with excellent instruction from Nathan. The skills I obtained will be invaluable.
Advanced Powerboat: A well organised course, our instructor Nathan worked hard to help us achieve the planning, chart work and practical night navigation. A good way to polish the skills learned from the PB 2 course and pick up some additional tips along the way.
Having completed the PW course, the instructors made it look so simple to train us.. The PW instructor course with our trainer Candi was a definite challenge. The tempo of the course brought all the key aspects together for the final assessment with Graham and our volunteer student Richard, who was having a fun time on the water. It was a good platform to learn the RYA teaching methods and all the students passed the course.
Thanks to all the team for the hard work to make this a success.
I received excellent training from our instructor Katie and in the presence of Nathan (Chief Instructor). I had a good time especially on the skills and slalom course and I learned a great deal. Thanks
Nathan was a wonderful instructor and I learnt so much from him! He was passionate and dedicated to all of us, giving us each equal amounts of driving time. He answered any and all of our questions. He’s very knowledgeable and I was 100% satisfied with our course. Thank you Aigua!
I have taken yacht courses in Florida, Canada and Europe. By far I can say Aigua Sea School has exceeded all my experiences and beyond! My instructor Trevor was absolutely incredible. He has a command and genuine instinct for the sea which really shows in his teaching! Linda and her team have an awesome and unique appreciation for their students, and I’ve never felt better looked after. I will recommend their school to anyone who comes to Palma. Take the Day Skipper! You wont regret it!
From first contact I felt like my career development and success was personally important to Linda. Encouraged all the way, her personal touch and professionalism helped me develop from dong a personal water craft proficiency to instructor, then onto YM Offshore! Linda has a wealth of information and selects the best team to support her business and again, personally ensures they too are happy.

I have done my PB2, VHF, Day Skipper Motor and PWC Instructor with Aigua and I couldn’t be happier with all my instructors!!!! (Nathan, Sam, Trevor, Linda, Katie, Candi and Graham – thanks to you all!! You are brilliant!). The professionalism that everything is run with, from the first contact to the end of the courses, is to a very high standard and making you feel welcomed at all times! I am already looking forward to what´s next!!! Keep up the good work!
Learned so much of you guys already. Thank you Linda, Amanda, Sam and Trevor.. You are great teachers, picking me up and putting me as far as possible an my goals. .I know there’s a far way to go… Can´t wait to do the Yachtmaster!
The Ocean course with Aigua was awesome. Our instructor, Simon, is so passionate about celestial nav and wants everyone to share some of his excitement. He makes a real effort to have both himself and the content be approachable – it’s not the simplest of subjects. The day out on the water was really useful as well as I didn’t even realize the mistakes I was making until my real sight values weren’t making sense.
My experience with Aigua was just like I heard it would be before applying for Yachtmaster. Everything was excellent from theory part, that was held by John, followed by Trevor’s practical, and all round with Linda: she was all the time there to help with everything else. Also, course was even harder than the exam and they were pushing us more and more till the day of exam. I would highly recommend this school to everybody interested in getting into higher step of Yachting. Thank you Aigua Team for interesting 2 weeks with wonderful atmosphere.
I just want to send you a quick line to thank you, and congratulate you for having such great instructors, Sam and Trevor.
They made the day skipper motor course fun and easy to follow as well as keeping it interesting! They took the extra mile to make sure everyone was confident with the contents of the course.
The ocean course was magnificent. I cannot express my gratitude towards the instructor Simon, the course content, and the overall organisation of the school. Simon is incredibly passionate about celestial navigation, which makes learning more fun and compelling. Linda and Katie are incredibly helpful with all of the paperwork over all support and enthusiasm. I would recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Aigua!!
Once again the Aigua team have done it for me! I spend two weeks in Palma in October training for my Yacht Master: theory with John and the practical training with Trevor. It was fun and learning at the same time! Thanks guys for your professionalism and big thanks girls Linda & Katie for all the help and your friendliness you make a great team !
It put a smile on my face every day 🙂
Hope to see you again soon
From the first email i sent to the school to get information on dates and prices until i passed my exam, Linda and Katie where always there. I could email them at anytime and sure enough before the end of the day I had a reply. All the instructors where excellent at getting you to the standard needed to pass the exams.
I am definitely coming back to do my Ocean with Aigua soon. Best school on the island and possibly in the med.
My experience at Aigua Sea School was nothingless than exceptional. From the initial email contact to the present, I have received great communication, terrific instruction, and continual support. The operation is run professionally and customer minded. I found the instructors in both the theory and practical to be knowledgable, friendly, and patient. Thank you Aigua for an amazing experience!
The two-week course for the offshore exam, both theory and practical, was based on solid content which helped all participants to understand and confidently know the rules of the road, charting, tidal theory. It was planned so that all participants were well informed and had the knowledge to excel thru the exams. The practical week was a great week of sailing were one could fine tune their skills to be online for the practical exam. Instructor John was well informed, incredibly helpful and patient. He was a vast wealth of information and has many great tricks to help you achieve the result you desire. Again I can’t help but boast about the ladies Linda and Katie; they are incredibly helpful and enthusiastic- really making the experience at the school something to be cherished. Thank you!
My experience with Aigua Sea School has been excellent from the beginning. Linda has been very helpful since I first showed up in the school for information and Katie has always been there when Linda is busy. I also met Trevor doing the powerboat level 2 and John on the YM theory, both of them are so patient and skillful which makes learning and practices easy. I totally recommend Aigua Sea School and will look forward to do YM Ocean with them in the future!
Thanks very much for the great Yachtmaster ocean course. Simon was a great instructor and extremely passionate about his subject.
I very much enjoyed the five-day Competent Crew course in October 2015. The sailng vessel was very comfortable (no sharing of rooms!) and Nathan did an excellent job of teaching us the basics. He is very motivating and extremely patient as a teacher and gave us great confidence even when the wind is blowing a bit more. I’ll sure be back for Day Skipper. Willi
Many thanks for the well organized two days of training, the Powerboat level 2 course was just perfect for the whole family. Trevor was an excellent tutor and I would totally recommend the course to anyone interested in hiring or buying a motor boat….many thanks Andy
As a complete novice to sailing I have to congratulate the team at Aigua Sea School for the high level of professionalism they demonstrated throughout the courses. The co-ordination and flexibility of planning the courses I selected with Linda and Katie was fantastic. The teaching skills of Nathan and Jamie was first class. The ability to keep all the students at different levels of experience focused and engaged on the courses can only be attributed to the schools selection of the finest instructors. I was also impressed with the high level of safety and the standard of watercraft for conducting our practical training. I will definitely be booking future courses with Aigua. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
The Competent Crew sailing course was excellent and Nathan is a valuable asset to your school; his passion for sailing and huge knowledge is crystal clear.
The first aid on Saturday was brilliant. I have had a few courses with Amanda before whilst working on Unfurled, so knew what to expect and as always really enjoyed what she had to teach us.
Start Yachting: We had a brilliant time thank you. We were hoping that we would have a clear decision on sail vs motor afterwards but if anything the choice got harder! Sailing really is up our street and we immensely enjoyed the peace, quiet and the test of being under sail.
I think overall, the course met our expectations. We we’re expecting to be tired in the evening, but from the physicality of winching sails etc – in practice I think it was the combination of sun, sea air and finding our sea legs that tired us out. We thought Trevor was a brilliant teacher, clearly knowledgeable and calm in handling newbies.
Great course, exactly what is needed for the yacht tender driver, goes far beyond simple handling and into broader areas like weather, equipment checks, passage planning, day/night pilotage etc. Now that the guinea pigs have succeeded, we will schedule the others for our next period here, so they should be able to learn some valuable lessons and be even better prepared..!
Captain, MY Teleost
Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that i really enjoyed the theory course last week with John. It was so beneficial to do the course again as it definitely sunk in a lot more this time round, thanks to Johns teaching technique I’m sure!
I’d just like to comment on our instructor. A lovely manner. Course was almost (almost) harder than the exam so good preparation. Showed us some good ‘tips’, visual aids, and demystified / simplified things. Approachable. Good teacher. Tough love sometimes at the right times.
Above all – he gave us all confidence and helped us believe in ourselves and develop our command skills/ leadership.
Following an inspiring conversation held with Linda at the end of last year, my wife and I came back to Aigua Sea School in Palma with our boat, in order to prepare the Yachtmaster Coastal and Offshore exam. Palma is always a great place to be and the school is in a very convenient location. Linda and her staff managed to helpfully organise theory and practical training sessions around our constraints. We were continuously supported and the school provided an excellent training, which was key for our successful outcome. A big “thank-you” to Linda, John, Jaimie and Katie!
All went well yesterday and we enjoyed the course. Nathan was a very conscientious and thorough instructor and I hope he enjoyed the weekend as much as we did. Everyone learned a few new tricks and it was a good chance to brush up on old skills and put into practice the procedures which we don’t always practice on a regular basis. As I had hoped, the course proved to me that this is the level of qualification which we need to be looking at and I hope that we can work with you in the future to qualify others.
I did really enjoy my week’s sailing. I really rated Nathan as an excellent teacher as he was very positive and encouraging in stilling confidence. I felt that I learnt a lot and that the group size was perfect. I appreciated having my own cabin and thank you for provisioning the boat so well. All in all it was a big success and I am encouraged to continue sailing and take one day skipper before too long! Thank you again.
Thanks so much to you and your team for all of your training and support over the last couple of weeks, you were all brilliant. I’m very pleased I sat in on the theory again over the first week as it just refreshed everything for me and definitely sunk in more the second time round. I felt much more prepared for the practical having done this, I think I’d have panicked otherwise!
John was just great, both with the theory and the practical and made sure we were well prepared for the exam. I’m really happy with what I have achieved over the 2 weeks.
I wasn’t sure what to expect for my recent Day Skipper’s course, but it exceeded any expectations I had. It was a tough 9 days, no denying, but at the end of it I was not just satisfied at my performance but rather overwhelmed at what I had achieved. This was down, in no short way, to the excellent on-shore and practical training I was given by the schools trainers.
The ‘students’ were of widely varying experience , character and capability and the trainers demonstrated and passed on their great knowledge of yachting with real enthusiasm and patience.
The on – shore theory certainly dusted off the cobwebs of my grey matter and I really enjoyed the mental challenge. The practical sailing was intense , thorough and challenging, but still great fun.
I made the right choice choosing Aigua Sea School all the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, and I look forward to further improving my yachting skills through them.
Own boat tuition: Many thanks indeed.
Trevor is an excellent trainer. We could not have asked for more.
He was clear and relaxed in his guidance as well as being good company.
I just want to say thank you so much to you and your babe of an instructor, because I am living my dream and you guys helped me get here. I’ll never forget it.
The course meant so much to us, and was so perfect in every detail, that we exactly for that reason wanted to not only write an email. So I am more than glad to hear that we were able to share some of this magic with you! Thank you again so much for everything! Really best honeymoon we could have ever asked for!!!
I’m very happy with Aigua School, the theory courses and the on-board practises, as well as the refreshments. The personal attention to my multiple questions and doubts and the patience with my language troubles. The material in the class and the boats I did the training and exams were in very good condition and presentation. Well done Linda and Aigua School!.
First and foremost Nathan is an excellent instructor. Very attentive to his students needs. His knowledge of his craft is second to none. What I was most impressed with was his positive attitude his willingness to share his knowledge non-withholding and most importantly Nathan’s non judgmental attitude. He made us all feel comfortable and created a positive learning environment. I have found the whole experience of learning the yachting operations of the Med and the correct procedures to make for a safe and enjoyable work environment most rewarding.
I personally thank Linda for running such a professional program at Aigua Sea School which I highly recommend and encouraging me to take a chance and embrace the opportunity to follow my dream and pursue a new, exciting and rewarding career. In regards to the RYA syllabus it has no flaws. The interactive radio program is fun to use and the breakdown of the VHF communications subject as a whole is easy for a beginner to follow and a good refresher for radio experts in the field. Overall a very positive experience.
Regarding service & quality: I am very pleased. With the overall handling- competent, friendly and efficient service, as well as professional and Fun courses! So very well done everything – thanks a lot!
Just a brief note to say how much we both enjoyed the course and how brilliant Nathan was. He made the course really interesting and was a fountain of knowledge. He’s just got a really nice manner of getting lots of info across in a relaxed way.
As for the course, just brilliant. It was at a very appropriate level for me, covered theory I obviously need to know for when I buy a RIB myself, and the actual time on the water was invaluable, particularly marina and MOB drills. I really enjoyed both days, and have to say that as a teacher myself I was very impressed with Nathan. He was always calm yet authoritative, and he managed to divide the day up into suitable ‘chunks’ of theory and practical. He demonstrated a high level of knowledge and was able to give us many ideas and tips when it came to boat handling.
Big hug and thank you for making me love sailing. I had the best time ever with your school. Nothing out there compares to your school! Please tell Nathan and John a big hello from me too!
Thank you for your e-mail. We had a fantastic week and in our group were all very nice people and we all got along really well. John is a great, experienced teacher and we also liked our skipper Nathan very much. The boat was in good condition, spacious, clean and we had good fun with Nathan yet learned a lot at the same time. The food provided was generous and good quality and as hard as you ask me to think, I really don’t have any complaints…!
I can and will recommend your school and also come back soon for subsequent courses.
The course was awesome!
I learned a lot and Nathan was an absolute star! He has a lot of knowledge and a very calm way of teaching. We all learnt so much from him! The course was absolutely what I wanted it to be. The boat was lovely and very well equipped and all response and communication with you was fantastic!
It was really such a great experience and I can not praise you and Nathan enough.
Thank you for organising Nathan to do our boating licence. He was incredibly thorough, professional, charming and patient. I feel we learnt a huge amount in two day and his enthusiasm was great. I couldn’t recommend him more highly and will definitely use him in the future for anymore boating lessons we need.
I would also like to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed both the theory and practical elements of the day skipper motor course. The atmosphere and camaraderie was excellent and I would highly recommend the school to any one that asked.
Just wanted to say thank you very much for organising the course that we have just completed. I know that you went to a lot of trouble.
Very happy with the course, instruction and the outcome… Thanks again
After being in yachting for 4 years and in RIBs for a big part of them, I was well impressed by the course syllabus, and most important by Nathan’s approach to it. He was a great instructor, very knowledgeable and kind and he surely went beyond the course’s content to answer all our doubts regarding pretty much everything – from bad weather to crew houses in Palma for one of the new guys. He was patient and in control the whole time, even when we were driving, which made me feel very safe.
I will surely recommend your school and him, and I am very happy to have done the course with you.
A brief bit of feedback about my time at Aigua. A huge thank you all for looking after me so well! John did an absolutely fantastic job at teaching us and he has incredible patience as I know it can get frustrating at times. The yacht was absolutely fantastic and the safety equipment was impeccable. I will definitely be recommending Aigua!
Similarly the Sea Survival course was really good and you are an excellent Instructor. Both Paul and I feel more equipped to deal with an emergency situation. I particularly liked the structure of the course (morning theory then afternoon practical) and being able to look at and use all the equipment.
The First Aid was great and we both really enjoyed it. Amanda (Hewson) was excellent; she explained everything very well and answered all questions. We could have quite easily done another day to further our learning.
I would not hesitate to recommend Aigua Sea School and I would like to thank them all. With special thanks to Linda who was a great help to me by providing extra tuition with regards to the shore based theory course; Linda explains in a very simple and clear way. My instructor Trevor was very knowledgeable and had an excellent method of teaching. Thanking all the team!
Sea Survival: Just a quick review on this essential day – beside the well structured course and its content, I personally think that this is one of the most essential courses any seamen should take. The theoretical part covers the parts and topics which you normally don’t expect where the practical drill prepares you for the situation when you abandon the ship. Furthermore you not only know what to do and what you shouldn’t but you get an idea of what will happen when your passengers and your crew get onto this raft or how to react to survive under difficult circumstances. These essential parts, and the training for this unlikely event, turns this course into a ‘must’ to any seafarer.
Thank you very much for all your efforts and your patience.
I am writing to show my thankfulness to you and Aigua Sea School for helping me complete the commercial endorsement. I am very satisfied with your services and if I ever decide to gain more qualifications your school will definitely be the first one I consider. Many thanks to you and your team!
I would not hesitate to recommend Aigua Sea School and I would like to thank them all. With special thanks to Linda. She was a great help to me by providing extra tuition with regards to the shorebased theory course, she explained in very simple and clear way. My instructor Trevor was very knowledgable and had an excellent method of teaching; by showing the maneuvers first which made it clear as to what was expected. Thanking all the team!
The AIGUA sea school team is extremely paient with their students, very hands-on and help with all our questions and/or problems. John and Trevor are by far in need of a big thanks because they do extremely well with all of the above on the boats and in the class room. The lads and I wouldn’t change a thing if we were to choose who to do courses with!
Following that up … you and Jennifer do an exceptional job with getting back to us with any problems or questions …. so incredibly fast. As well as sorting out and chasing us with any documents and certificates that are needed. Also very patient and kind. Very easy to get along with and just make all of our time at AIGUA incredibly enjoyable!!
For sure in the future I will use AIGUA sea school many times over!
I did my Day Skipper course with Aigua Sea School and it was GREAT! I enjoyed every minute of it. The Instructors are great and I learned some great stuff. From not knowing much at all about boats I ended up being able to skipper a yacht all by my self. I would totally recommend Aigua to anyone who is considering taking any courses!!
Thank you so much for everything! It was ALL perfect. I am so happy with everything from my side. Depending on where I am in the world in the next few months. I would like to come and do a few other bits with you guys.
Well structured and delivered. The Aigua team was very helpful, and created a demanding and a very good atmosphere to learn. Always ready to help, their knowledge and attitude absolutely superb!!
I would like to say thank you for the VHF exam & workshop and for your professionalism. I feel I learnt more in two evenings with you than I have in two days over here and that’s all due to the fantastic way you explain things. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the email, I couldn’t be happier! What a way to go home for Christmas. I wanted to email to thank the whole Aigua team and tell you what a great school I think you have. I feel that the tuition both in the classroom and on the boat was brilliant. I would definitely recommend you in the future.
I don’t have any criticism of the school, I think that the additional evening classes are a great idea. That was exactly what I needed to ‘scare’ me in to studying. When I turned up I realised how little I knew and it put me on the right track.
Let me first thank you all; I felt at home after 5 minutes i crossed the schools door, now i know why you are the only center almost always fully booked. You constantly follow the students giving them all support they need from the technical aspect to the human side one, this is a infrequent attribute i think.
Thank you very much, it has been a super course . I just have words of praise for your whole team, very professional course with the highest standards of quality. You make me improve my sailing skills dramatically. I would strongly recommend it to anybody who wants to become a yachtmaster.
A friendly and approachable team, great atmosphere, a relaxed and efficient way to get your qualifications.
Everything was perfect! I wrote to John for thank him for the perfect training. I will return to Aigua!
Would like to just say a huge thanks. I had a great time on the course and thought the teaching was excellent! I will definitely get in touch when I am doing my YM Ocean.
Thanks so much for the help before and during my Yachtmasters. I felt that both the theory and the practical sections of the course were both very well taught and enjoyable, going at a good speed to test and push us but also giving enough time for the knowledge to sink in. I will definitely recommend your school to anyone I know who is looking to do courses in the future.
Thanks again for a fantastic course and as always, Aigua Sea School is my only recommendation. The effort and attention you constantly give all of us, is never taken for granted.
Please know that I think your school is great. The quality of instruction I received from Simon Bradshaw was also absolutely top notch and helped me immensely. Without that i would have been half way into the Atlantic scratching my head. Great Facilities and location too. Yachtmaster Ocean
Both Herman and very much appreciated the RYA training. Noel did a fantastic job, he was very clear, easy to understand and had a excellent way of transferring his overwhelming knowledge. Very impressive.
I want to let you know, that we had a great week with our instructor Trevor Marshall and that we enjoyed the training course very much. We had the feeling, that during the 5-days course we learned a lot and Trevor made us sail the boat independently (he instruct us great to navigate the boat alone). We were very much pleased and we will recommend your school further.
Just a quick one to thank you both for your time aboard Smooth Operator and for working through the whole process so thoroughly with us. I thought you went about your business in a very professional manner yet managed to personalize it to our yacht and our individual needs.
Thanks especially for the extra effort you put in with one of us. I think he did exceptionally well and (more importantly) he’s proud of what he’s achieved. All round; a good job, well done!
I was extremely happy with Noel as a teacher. His methods were very very thorough and seeing as my brain is more sieve like than sponge, his practical method of teaching (rather than just drilling us with facts) was brilliant. When I go on to do my Day Skippers I would certainly request him if he was available.
Thanks! I had a great time over the weekend. Noel is a tremendous instructor. A keen eye for safety, but allowed us to make mistakes (only a few 😉 and a great communicator. I’d be happy to have him show me how to drive my super yacht. Just as soon as I buy it 😉 The boat was in fine condition and the folk at the office were fabulous.
The course was AMAZING and perfect for me. Thank you, and please pass on my thanks to Noel, he was a superb instructor, very patient and very professional and wealth of info…

We thought the Own boat tuition course was great. Trevor was informative, calm, personable and a pleasure to be onboard with. Though he obviously covered the syllabus, he also concentrated on those aspects which would be most significant for us, and that seemed very sensible and realistic. He also tailored the pace of things to our pace of learning, so that it felt stretching but not impossible. We were very impressed and pleased. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Aigua to anyone!
Just wanted to say thanks for arranging today with Trevor. Trevor was excellent. He managed to give us loads of advice even if the ICC was quite a simple task. Really worth while for us both. Thank you
To all at Aigua Sea School. I would like to thank everybody for helping me in achieving my Yachtmaster Offshore, the training and facilities provided were amazing and everybody involved did a fantastic job! I would happily recommend anyone studying for their Yachtmaster to take it with Aigua Sea School!! Many many thanks and all the best!
Thanks to Aigua for providing the absolute best training and tutors. Trevor and John were so helpful, instructive and friendly and easy to learn from. I will definitely recommend Aigua to everyone.
The overall impression of the day skipper motor combo course was great much due to your excellent instructor Trevor. The focus on practical experience was very appreciated and the vessel was well suited for the purpose (was great to know that the vessel was more or less like a big fender when driving around among superyachts…). A special thank you to our instructor as he was excellent. He did not always tell us what to do but he did let us make mistakes, with his supervision, so that we could learn from it while having someone very experienced on board. I think that is a much better way of learning as I will remember it when being out at sea and not having a experienced instructor onboard.
I will, if proceeding for the bigger yachts in a few years, definitely come back to your school.
I will be strongly recommending you to anyone who asks me about sailing courses, it was fun and you’re a friendly bunch who know how to get peoples confidence up. I thought John was a brilliant instructor, he cut out all the nonsense and simplified everything into understandable and achievable steps. However I think his brew-makers licence may be out of date because he seemed to confuse marmite for coffee.
I want to thank you and Jennifer for the well organized and personal service you provided me at every step of the way in order to help me achieve my certification.
Your knowledge about the process at all levels, in addition to the extra work you put in, was a primary reason I chose Aigua. Linda, you personally teaching our Shorebased Theory course was great because I was able to transfer those skills from the classroom and use them effectively during actual navigation during the boat exam. You made the course material clear, relevant, and simplified and made the important points easy to remember. Very helpful during an exam!
Our instructor Trevor was excellent; knowledgable in all aspects of the course, especially engines, boat handling and navigation, and was a pleasure to sail with. Great at teaching a lot of skills quickly and helped me to come up to speed on my blind navigation techniques in particular (I was able to get spot on on the first try and ace’d it during the exam). Please send the Aigua team a big thank you from me for all their assistance with passing the Yachtmaster 200 Offshore, and a big thanks to you too Linda.
The excellent training I received at Aigua was extremely helpful in passing the Yachtmaster and I will definitely recommend Aigua Sea School in Palma to anyone who is looking for certification and marine training for working on yachts. You guys are the best!
I would rate Trevor Marshall as one of the very best trainers that I have come across in the many years that I have lived and having attended many such training courses. He was very informative without being over dominant and he allowed us to learn from our own mistakes without too much intervention. A thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
Good service and help from everyone at the office all the way. John is a very charismatic teacher that gets everyone involved and alert but you don’t expect anything less from someone with that experience. Trevor is one of the most relaxed and easygoing instructors you’ll ever have and while he teaches you the stuff you’ll also have tons of fun and many good laughs. He’s straightforward and he will tell you what he thinks and he will give you the types of tips that makes you realize he’s had few YM classes in his days as an instructor and if he can’t make you prepared for the exam nobody will. The boat Bloody Mary is nice to drive and fairly straightforward to handle. Will highly recommend Aigua to anyone! – Robin, full YM offshore motor theory and practical
Thanks so much for all the help from your school, I can’t give a lot of feedback as my experience was SO good! The advice you gave me was brilliant, and Noel’s teaching was excellent, I really feel like he put in the extra mile to make sure we were competent!
I really enjoyed the course and I do believe that Aigua is one of the best schools I have come across. The facilities, staff and program is of high quality.
I was super happy with John and with you and Linda in the “back office”! Everything was great both during theory and practical course. The class is perfect for this type of courses and having you and Linda right next door is super useful. ‘Layla’ is a perfect boat for this type of course
Probably one of the most important things is yours (you and Linda) informal attitude … it is the best way to put people in a smiley mood and to let them enjoy their time at the school, even if they are doing a hard course and spending a lot of money 😀 ! So keep on working like that!!
If any of my Italian friends what to do a Yachtmaster, I will send him to Aigua for sure!
So, overall super great!!
PS: I’m sure we’ll see again soon! Your office it’s close to many pubs, so that’s a plus too 🙂
The course has been great, VERY INTENSE, and I believe, I learned a lot. Noel did a perfect job, both in theoretic and practical teaching. He has a very good way to make you understand things and still got this nice British humour…
Thanks to Aigua for a great Yachtmaster Ocean course. I especially liked the chance to go out on the boat and take sights for real, it put everything into perspective.
Everything about my experience at Aigua was top notch. Great instructor, great front office, very clear and organized. I had a blast, and will for sure recommend Aigua to my peers in the future. I’ll be back for some more classes at some point, I’m sure of it.
AIGUA is THE premier maritime training facility. I proudly recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in taking professional maritime career courses. Compared with other schools I’ve attended before I’ve just been absolutely astounded… at the high amount of personal care and attention given to each student by both administrators and instructors. What makes this organization so special are the wonderful people behind it. The instructors really care; they go far beyond the extra mile. They are experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and they truly care about helping you learn and reach your goals. You can tell it’s more than a 9-5 job for them. I spent two weeks with instructor John O’Hara for my Yachtmaster Offshore Theory and Practical (Sail) and the day I passed my exam I got a call from him congratulating me. You just won’t find that elsewhere. Choose AIGUA, you’ll be glad you did.
I really enjoyed my time with you and thought all the staff at Aigua were really friendly and welcoming. Tony was a fantastic teacher and went at a good pace. He managed to make sure that if certain people were moving at a faster pace that they were given extra exercises with increased difficulty which really helped the speed of working out secondary ports, course to steer etc.. It’s a shame I couldn’t do my practical with you as well, I’m sure your practical instructor would be just as good.
P.S. Jen was extra amazing 😉
We spent one week in August as a family on the training boat with three kids: 9, and twins of 7 years old. Both myself and my wife learnt more than we ever expected. We had an excellent instructor that supported and guided us to learn the key sailing points, how to deal and execute man overboard manoeuvring, docking the boat, bowlines, navigating, and the sailing terminology. It was spaced is such a way that the children learnt loads and got to snorkel and swim. The highlights was the night spent moored in the Isla de Cabrera and in Illetes. We achieved our learning goal, and had a wonderful week. Highly recommended way for a family to spend time together.
What a fantastic experience the week was. Steve was a top instructor! Learnt so much from him. Cabrera was stunning. We are still thinking about the week!
In July our family spent a tremendous week aboard the Layla. What a great sailing yacht! As a training yacht it had much more equipment onboard than one would find on a typical charter boat. My wife and I each completed the RYA Day Skipper course and our three children completed the Competent Crew course. Our instructor, Trevor, was great: very knowledgeable, very patient and very good with teaching the kids. In advance of our trip, Aigua was great answering all of our strange questions and making us feel at ease before arriving. During our trip we were able to see the amazing sites of Mallorca. We highly recommend Aigua Sea School!!!
I would like to express my gratitude to our great instructor, Noel, for his mixture of humorous and strict methods of teaching us about power boating and the rules of the sea. He was able to keep enough pressure on us to really concentrate on our tasks, yet he did it in a way to ensure our success at the same time. Bravo to Noel and I will be recommending the school to my friends for their boating certificates. The RIB that we used was an excellent tool to learn how to manoeuvre a boat, it was in good condition and suited our needs perfectly.
I also appreciated the helpful and friendly emails from the staff which made me feel welcomed and at ease from the beginning of the process all the way to the end.
Congratulations to AIGUA SEA SCHOOL for a job well done
Thanks again for a wonderful 2 weeks, I had a blast!
I thought that Noel’s way of instructing was very, very good, and I will be doing my next course in September because of the way he works.
The Humber 800 rib was perfect for doing this course and also the amount of people doing the course was also right.
Altogether a very well organized course.
Thank you for your excellent advice that we use our own tender rather than the school RIB.
It helped to make the training more relevant, operating from Salem, as we will in the Summer.
Noel was very patient and worked hard to guide them through the course.
Thank you also to you and Linda for setting up the course at short notice.
Thank you so much for making it happen that Mira and I could do this course, It was just fantastic – a lot to learn, and a lot of new things, but Noel has been teaching us really really well and had a lot of patience for us and I am amazed how much more we know now about Vessels within two days.
Noel – thank you for everything, it was great to have you as our instructor.
I must say that we had the most exhilarating week with strong winds and a fantastic mentor in Alex.
He is brilliant and must congratulate you on employing such a knowledgeable chap.
We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in some quite extreme conditions. So a big thank you to Aigua Sea School!
