I have just completed the level 2 powerboat handling course at Duck-2-Water with Brian as my instructor and two other students.I was extremely excited to get stuck in with this course and Brian’s teaching style accommodated for this as we were on the water within half an hour of the course start time.It is very hands on and you learn a lot in a short amount of time but it is taught in a fun and engaging way. You are assessed on your practice throughout the two days in an informal manor which made the whole experience very comfortable with as little stress as possible.I would strongly recommend this course to anyone looking around other places to take this course.

Just completed my Level 2 Powerboat Course! Really enjoyed learning all the skills both the theory and practical. Our instructor Paul was really clear in his instructions, no question was too silly to ask so really learnt every aspect of the course. Thanks Duck 2 Water had a great weekend and looking forward to starting my boating journey!

I just completed the Level 2 motorboat course. As a beginner it’s amazing how much knowledge and confidence I came out with after 2 days. Paul was the best teacher, patient, clear and kind! Really recommend. 3 people per course so a-lot of time for questions and practice on the boat! Thanks so much!!
