My husband and I went through Sea Soaring to get our skippers, could not recommend Wayne highly enough! Such an informative, knowledgeable, reassuring and patient instructor who clearly knows his stuff.

Hi Wayne,

I am sorry I didn’t get back to the room to see you before you left.

I just wanted to thank you for the training – some of the most useful and enjoyable training I have ever done.

I loved the way you got everyone involved and interacting.

Anyway – thanks again mate and well done!

Cheers,

Hi Wayne,

Thanks again for the great learning experience yesterday. You truly are a very passionate and knowledgeable bloke and I’m so glad that I completed my RST with Sea Soaring Marine. Myself, Aimee, Mike, and Big Al all agreed that the experience was priceless and certainly “more than just a skipper’s ticket” as you so rightfully said.

My confidence in skippering a vessel has increased and I can’t wait to get out on the water with my family to enjoy the Blackwood river and Geographe bay in particular.

All the best for your time up north and good luck with your future endeavours. Say hello to Wilson for me and thanks once again for your tuition and good times yesterday.

Cheers,

Just did a refresher course with Wayne and really had a great time. He brought back so many things I had forgotten and taught me a lot of new boating skills. This guy really knows his stuff, so is you haven’t got a skippers ticket or need to know about boats, contact him, you’ll be glad you did.

From initial conversation to booking to information sent dealing with Wayne has been a pleasure. The actual day of theory and practical with 7 of us in attendance from ages 14 to 47 was professional, informative, fun, relatable and clear. Wayne uses both visual and written methods and completes the day with a positive, calm approach and great of humour. The Sea Soaring II (yep Wayne we remembered the name of the boat ????) was beautifully maintained. Thank u Wayne for a gr8 day – absolutely recommend you anywhere anytime???? See u on the water!

Hey!!! Just wanted to say how amazing today was. It was a pleasure to learn new stuff from you and to not feel like a dick when asking a question. Your lessons were very informative and I feel very confident to be able to take out my boat tomorrow. You did not belittle me as a woman ( surprisingly it does happen a lot these days ). Thank you so much. Will def recommend you to other people.

Good evening Wayne

Firstly, thank you for your time and patience in delivering the assessment information for my RST. I actually learnt a great deal and gained confidence. I’m glad I chose your delivery method with the extra information that will help with ramp etiquette, maintenance, safety methods and procedures and general common sense. You succeeded in teaching me that boating really does require a specific and focused mindset.

Thanks again,

G’day Wayne. Just wanted to thank you for a great day yesterday. It was extremely informative and fun! We all had a ball. We look forward to seeing you on the water ( but hopefully you not rescuing us! ) ha ha
Kind regards

I can’t recommend the Skippers Ticket Training course at Sea Soaring Marine highly enough. Wayne is an excellent instructor with a wealth of experience in sea rescue and recreational boating. I finished the course much more confident that I can keep my family safe on the water and plan appropriately. If you are thinking of getting your RST and want to be safe as well as legal, give Wayne a call.

Dr Justin Harrison - November 2014

Wayne is an excellent teacher, he made our day enjoyable and informative. We all felt we learnt a lot, even those that had been on the water for years. I highly recommend investing in Sea Soaring Marine!
