Sail and Fun reviews as published on Google:
I did my STCW course with James he is one of the most experienced ,knowledgeable and professional Instrouctor that i ever met.
The course is very complete , organized and makes you ready for any
emergency while in the water.
I would like also to thank the team behind the scene specialty to Hela for the amazing communication and support.
Without a doubt, the best sailing courses you can get in the area, the team is extremly friendly and proffessional.
Great location and facilities. These instructors are not just turning up to do their job, they actually want you to succeed beyond the course.
I did my basic safety training here, Jason is highly professional and helpful, the course was great, I would gladly recommend this school to anyone who is looking to do their STCWs
Amazing experience! Communication with Diego was simple and he was really accommodating. Jason and James kept the STCW course professional and fun at all time and we had a great time!
I have taken the PER course (with the extension of powers and radio course), and thanks to Diego's teachings I have obtained the degree. Not only is he a great teacher who cares about his students, but he also knows how to convey his passion for the sea. I was able to enjoy his company sailing, and I always had the feeling of being in the best hands (and to top it off, he cooks wonderfully! ) The facilities at the academy are great, in an incredible location. It has been a great experience, which I recommend to everyone. Sail and Fun!!!
I will not hesitate to return when I need a course or update. You can tell they like their work and they want to teach you and answer all your questions. Sofia explained all the tests in a general way and then individually when executing it. We released immersion suits and the fire suits were noticeably washed after each training.
Sophia was a fantastic instructor, she was very patient with my Spanglish.
When you do a course with these guys you become part of a really great family.
I did the Advanced GOC Radio course
The content of the syllabus conforms to that required to pass the knowledge tests to obtain nautical qualifications. The teacher's explanations are very clear and help a lot to better understand the subject matter. They have exams from other years to prepare any call. Thanks to them, I passed the GNP exam with no problems.
Excellent academy. Highly recommended.
One of the highlights of my holiday!
The people are very accommodating, and very good communication through email.
If you ask, they allow you to bring your own food and drinks (including alcohol), or you have the option to have catering with the company.
You can tell the skipper what you want to do, so if you just want to chill and swim in the sea that's fine, or if you want to go dolphin or whale watching that can be done as well (not guaranteed to see anything though)...
We was on the yacht for 8 hours, depending what you want to do, I think the time and price can be adjusted.
Had to pay 50% beforehand and then the remaining on the day or beforehand if you want. They provide bank details to make payment (I used TransferWise - £2 fee to make my payment as my bank card would have charged an international fee). Receipts and invoices are all provided. - You must input all peoples names and passport numbers on the contract, they will explain all this through email.
The company will email you the day before to let you know which mooring number the yacht is.
The skipper and cabin crew - Gabriel and Ivan were brilliant, and we had a lot of fun with them, very cool people :) Laura who met us at the mooring and emailed me the day before was very nice and helpful.
The Dolphin Seeker (our Yacht) had beds, mini bbq/grill, fridge/freezer and toilet on board. - Note toilet is very small, so I would suggest to go toilet beforehand, there are public toilets where the yachts are. There is also an audio cable and plugs to charge phone. - Wifi is also opinion at a price.
Note, there is a 60EUR (may differ depending on yacht size) cleaning fee on top of the yacht price.
Massive thumbs up to this company! Couldn't have done a better job! Would definitely do again.
We celebrated a bachelorette party on one of the sail boats from Sail & Fun. Carlos and Gabriel were part of the crew. We had an amazing time! They asked us what we were up for, stopped wherever we wanted to go swimming and were great company. Definitely recommendable company to choose for whatever occasion! I would love to repeat in the future.
