    I was gifted a class B captains license course and didn’t know what to expect. Shipmate’s course was organized, supported by knowledgeable professionals and it’s recognized by the port department. I really enjoyed the course and would recommended it to seasoned sea goers or others just interested in learning new things. Thumbs up Shipmate and keep up the stellar work.

    I’ve always had a love for boats since I was a kid because I started going to work with my dad in the summers and he was a bartender on a catamaran. So I’d be up from 5am and excited to get on the boat and sail away every day every summer. However all my life I’ve been a banker and corporate manager with the curiosity of the boat life on the back burner. I stumbled across the page on Facebook one day and immediately caught my eye. The tuition had a payment plan and the overall cost was very affordable. It was exactly what any persons who doesn’t know anything about the sea needs. It’s basically Boat Masters for Dummies if you want to be blunt. The very first line on the first print out is “What is a boat?” I was sold from there. This is for me because I’m a dummy! At the end of the course I was using tools I’ve never seen in my life and plotting a course on a chart from the Bahamas into international waters and calculating fuel and wind speed. This place is nothing short of superb!

    Thanks Shipmate.

    My experience here was an awesome one. I've learned so many new things that I never knew, had a great teacher their course was very professional, flawless, outstanding... I can go on and on about how they handle and train their students. If anyone is looking to do their training in navigation or trying to become a captain. I highly recommend this school go everyone.

    Many thanks to ShipMate ltd. for their training being so TOP NOTCH and professional. I must say that I have being given hands on and theoretical training that has been very effective in many ways. The guided help I received in training made me more prepared, responsive and flexible in the field I have been trained for. Nonetheless, I recommend the training for anyone renewing their certificates, seeking knowledge or even looking for something new to do. With the classes being very informing and positive and all others being attuned to the same mindset, it makes training a more comfortable and passive environment.

    Cheers, Sail on.

    Great team and well planned curriculum. I did my Class B Boatmasters training at Ship Mate and was impressed with the structure, facility and knowledge of trainers. Capt Campbell has put together a well planned program. It was great meeting other mariners and gaining friends in the industry's I would highly recommend this training center for all maritime training.
