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.
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!!!
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!
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.
