Day Skipper Motor Cruising

Four days of practical training 


including fuel

This four-day course gives you the opportunity to skipper a motor cruiser on short passages under instruction. You will concentrate on pilotage, boat handling, seamanship and navigation. Taking the course here in Mallorca will provide you with a non-tidal course completion certificate. Aigua will advise you on your application for an International Certificate of Competence (ICC). Following the course you should be competent to skipper a motor cruiser in familiar waters by day.

You can tie your Day Skipper practical with the theory course: an eight day concentrated training course to provide you with the full Day Skipper qualification. We refer to this as the COMBO. Contact us for details.

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!

The training was excellent- We all gained confidence with maneuvering 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 course exceeded all our expectations and was thoroughly enjoyable.

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 … read more

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!
