Seascope France is a maritime training school conveniently located in Antibes, the largest port of Europe and the South of France.

We offer a variety of STCW, RYA, and G.U.E.S.T courses to both experienced and beginner seafarers. Out trainings allow to receive such entry level qualifications as deckhand and yacht steward / stewardess. All our courses are approved by relevant international agencies including MCA, RYA, and IAMI and are designed to meet the highest industry standards.

Why do your training with Seascope France?

We take pride in the quality of the training you receive with Seascope France. Our staff and instructors have extensive industry experience making us one of the most qualified training providers you will find.  Our courses are run to the highest standards and in accordance with the regulations and stringent requirements of the regulative bodies. We keep our groups small and apply individual approach so that each student can benefit from training. We make sure that the equipment used for the training is correct, and all students are aware how to use it. Some of our trainings are carried out onboard yachts to give students hands-on experience.


Our location adds to the advantages of our trainings. Antibes harbors Port Vauban, the largest port in Europe, and welcomes super- and megayachts throughout the year. When season comes, a number of cruise liners visit cities next to Antibes and along the coast of South France. Thus, future seafarers can start their job search while on the training and be ready to work on boats once the training is done!

    Did my STCW with Ged and PB2 with Max last week. Ged was great, really engaging and made the 5 days of class enjoyable - especially the fire training days. Max was also awesome, he made sure everyone understood all the rules and made sure we were safe when going out on a boat. When we went out on the boat he is a great teacher and made it so much fun. Super informative but also a good laugh. Definitely recommend Seascope for anyone doing their courses

    I did my STCW, Powerboat Lv2 and PWC with Seascope France, it was a great experience.
    The knowledge and expertise the instructors provided was on point but really fun at the same time.
    Cheers to Ged, Max and Sammi.

    I did my stcw, power boat level 2 and jet ski licence with seascope this year and honestly couldn't reccomend a better place to do these courses! Firstly I want to thank Jed he is an amazing teacher, he made me feel so safe and comfortable during our practical lessons fighting fires and also kept our theory enjoyable, he has a unique way of teaching that kept my focus and made me want to keep learning! Secondly Sammi was so patient and calm teaching me my pb2 and pwc course she gave me the confidence I needed to believe in myself and start my career...Thirdly the price is unbeatable, I did alot of research on where in the world to do these courses and Seascope france had the best value!
    Thank you all so much for having me, I'll always be back for my refreshers and future courses!

    We joined Seascape France for a week of refreshers and we couldn't possibly have been happier to train with their team. All of the instructors were lovely and made the information relatable. I couldn't recommend Seascope enough for all your courses.

    A very thorough refresher course. Jedd, our instructor was kind, considerate, professional, and entertaining- a bonus. Fire fighting in the hills of Nice was intense and we gained firsthand experience with all of the necessary circumstances we might find ourselves in. The sea survival at the local Antibes pool was also rigorous and thorough, and I came away with confident updates in my knowledge of how to prepare for both circumstances, which was exactly what the course was designed for. Thank you to the whole team!

    I did the Day Skipper Practical Motor Course with Seascope FR. The experience was perfect from the beginning including the inscription to the course and all the related info managed by Anastasia.
    Hugh, the instructor on the course, is extremely knowledgeable, passionate and has extensive boating experience which he knows how to share with his students.
    The group on the course was also amazing.
    I would highly recommend Seascope to anyone looking for boating training.

    I took the powerboat level 2 course with Sammi as the instructor. It was a truly outstanding experience. We practised the important maneuvers a lot and it was my first time on a motorboat on the sea. We practised navigation and acting as a team on the boat. Apart from a lot of practise there was a necessary bit of theory. Sammi is a great instructor, demanding and motivating at the same time. Her course is of very high level. I warmly recommend this school and Sammi for powerboat courses.

    2 days and you get a powerboat license which is equal to permis de bateau here in France but you get it fully in English. Pete was great teacher, explaining not only the rules but also best practices from real life, im very confident now renting boats now! Highly recommend for anyone who needs a boat license in France!

    Seascope Antibes was the perfect place to the Powerboat level 2 course.

    Pete was a fantastic instructor, he is very experienced, gave tons of highly valuable tips and advice with an on water, hands on focus. He assessed each participant and gave personal instructions to build confidence as we went through each procedure. The wind in Antibes varied a lot over the 2 days so we practised in calm as well as moderate and changing wind directions which was absolutely invaluable.

    Pete was always happy to respond to any questions or concerns whether in the classroom, on the boat or walking along the dock.

    Doing the course in a small group (4) was the best way to go, everyone was motivated and from very different backgrounds. We went through every procedure together, learned from each other, enjoyed sharing lunch, a few laughs and even a beer at the end of the day.

    The range of RYA courses to further build your skills lets you move easily in a career or recreational direction. For me next up is VHF radio use and navigation.

    Seascope is absolutely the place to go if you are looking for STCW training or other trainings. Anastasia was so helpful and knowledgeable, she helped me over the phone to pick the right dates for me as I wanted to do the STCW + PWC/Jet ski package, she was very patient and understanding and I was very impressed by her professionalism and friendly manner over the phone.

    Ged the STCW instructor was absolutely brilliant! He is very passionate about his work, very knowledgeable and made the courses very engaging and interactive. He’s a wonderful human, he made everyone feel welcome and was very patient with all our questions! Will absolutely love to do my refresher with him in 5 years.

    Sammi the Powerboat L2 and PWC/Jet Ski instructor was amazing! She made the course fun and enjoyable. The practical parts were very engaging and she was very patient and confident which made me feel confident behind the wheel! She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She’s a fantastic human and I would love to do more courses with her!

    Sophie helped me with my final payment before I started the course when I arrived and has been very helpful throughout the entire time while completing all my courses.

    Overall, my experience with Seascope has been nothing but perfect and I will be doing few more courses with them in the near future! Thank you all for the amazing delivery of the all the courses and for being amazing people to work with!

    Seascope France was an experience like no other. I participated in the STCW, the GUEST Interior and the Crowd Management/Human Behaviour courses. I can confidently say if you are a Greenie with no idea what to expect, this is the course for you. At the end of my courses, my trainer put my name forward and helped me get a job within 1 day of finishing. The team at Seascope really are dedicated to helping us succeed. Couldn't rate them highly enough. Thank you Ged and Faith! You are both legends and I hope to see you in the future. As for the Greenies out there, it's worth it!

    Dear Anastasia to be always available for answering my questions.

    Thank to Alfie for this unique leadership and creating an extraordinary team, and on the last day explaining the contents of personal survival techniques very clearly.
    I learnt a lot in this school.

    The people who run this company and work for it are absolutely amazing. There's a solid range of courses. I did the STCW, PB2, PWC and will be doing the GUEST Mixology course soon. I had Ged and Sammi as instructors and they were great. Anastasia is lovely and bubbly, Sophie and Cathy are extremely helpful and very understanding of different situations and helping to find a solution - and I didnt meet the rest of the team.

    Truly appreciate the help I recieved and effort everyone puts in.

    2) When all things go not on plan. They have huge amount of contacts to solve any problems. When Weather or Mother nature stands in front. Seascope have all tools and knowledge to be the best training school for Yacht crew training!

    Amazing experience with both the STCW and GUEST interior training courses. Ged was an engaging and extremely thorough instructor for the STCW who kept the classroom environment fun and friendly. I love that Seascope goes above and beyond when safety training. Faith was my instructor for the GUEST training; With her extensive background in yachting, pleasant personality and insider industry tips made for a well-rounded, fun course. The biggest plus with Seascope compared to other maritime schools is the amount of hands on training. The instructors want for you to thoroughly understand and master the course objectives and truly want the best for you. Overall an amazing few weeks at Seascope in beautiful Antibes!
