    I did the AEC1 at Palma Sea School. The course was well presented by the instructor (Phil) and the study material sufficient to get a good understanding of the engineering basics.
    Jo was also really professional and friendly, helping out wherever she can.
    Highly recommend the AEC1 at Palma Sea School.

    Amazing week doing the Day Skipper course. Since the first time I stepped in Palma Sea School they kindly attended me and answered all my questions. Then we met Steve, the instructor, who has years and years of experience and is a great teacher. Clear instructions, mixing theory and practice and giving us great advice and time "behind the wheel" to feel confident with the handling of the boat and learn lots of safety manoeuvres. I would totally recommend Palma Sea School.

    Incredible week Day Skipper Sailing. Fantastic instructor. Hugely varied conditions made it extra special. My 3rd course in Palma and the best yet. Luck enough to land the principle instructor Steve, with years of racing and racing experience, a veteran teacher made the week much more than i thought it could be. 100% Recommendation to anyone of any skill level.

    Palma Sea School (especially Jo Boycott), were very friendly and helpful. They were accurate and quick with their information and went the extra mile to answer all my questions. In the end, due to Covid and various schedules, it wasn't possible to finally do a course with them. However, if everybody at the school is as client orientated as the admin is, than I am sure it is a pleasure to work with them.

    I was very satisfied with standards and teaching of the school. John the instructor presented the theory and practical in a very easy way to understand. He also made sure to mix things up, so that we wouldn't only focus on one topic. I highly recommend this school for anyone who wants to get in the world of sailing.

    A wonderful immersion into the world of sailing! The 5 days competent crew course was a wonderful overload on information that kept me focused and present. The training was highly practical I learned by making mistakes - everything remained under control thanks to our fun and extremely experienced captain John who always i mean always gave us positive constructive feedbacks!! Thank you John for sharing your loving compassion tome and the other 3 students and for showing us your passion for the sea and smooth sailing out and about in the elements- including navigation during night - super cool!!! My body loved the unusual movements my hands got stronger with better circulation I trained my balance and the core got stronger and I was burning fat :)!!10'000 steps per day on the sailing yacht -as one of the co-crew students measured!!!! We went swimming daily diving into the most gorgeous turquoise waters! Visiting dream places. I am eager to carry on to the day skipper course!

    My 17 year old son took the Day skipper motor course, with instructor Mike Smith. The pre course communication and information was great, and my son said instruction from Mike was always very clear, and he thoroughly enjoyed this 4 day course. Thank you Palma Sea School

    I would highly recommend Palma Sea School. I completed my Day Skipper Motor with them last week. The course was well structured and brilliantly presented. Steve and Mike were exceptional and have a wealth of knowledge and experience, going over and above the what is required on the course to ensure we all got more than what we paid for.

    Did my AEC with them in June and definitely highly recommend.

    Sam, our instructor, presented the information in a super easy to understand, easily digested format with lots of real life examples, and from the admin side everything was quick and professional. Will certainly be going back for more courses in the future. Great job guys :)

    If you are looking for your RYA centre in Palma you just found one. I've recently completed practical preparation for my Yachtmaster Offshore followed by successful exam. The staff is working hard to make sure everyone is looked after before and after the course. All three of us passed very hard exam so i think this speaks for it self. Thank you to our instructors and to Luke for going above and beyond to make sure everything was tip top. A+++

    I first heard about Palma sea school after completing my STCW course at their sister school "South West Maritime Academy" in the UK, after expressing interest in completing my RYA day skipper course I joined the next available course to which it didn't disappoint, can't think of anything better than receiving the highest quality of training available in the sun on board a gorgeous princess v42 hard top.
    The training on board was fabulous and can't wait to return to complete my yachtmaster. Staff are friendly and always available to help when needed!

    My girlfriend and I did the Dayskipper motor course from the 14.-17. of January 2019.

    In the beginning there was no course available for this time slot, but since we wanted to do the course in the beginning of January, the school reacted flexible and offered us an extra time slot .We really enjoyed it and I definitely recommend the school. The whole team was very pleasant and we already think about taking our next course with the Palma Sea school...
    Thumbs up!
