    This is a brilliant maritime learning facility with great staff who are quick to respond and have great industry knowledge. I used their shoreside accommodation, which is a short walk away, perfect for studying and next to the pub. I highly recommend Searegs and will definitely use them again.

    Followed the STCW HELM operational course and the Master 200 GT/OOW 500 prep 5-day course and studied the 2 books written by Simon JINKS (Collision Regulations Handbook and Crammer for Deck Officer Oral Exams) and PASSED! I would highly recommend this school for their professionalism, their efficiency, the training materials and kindness. I wish you all the best!

    Weekend Sail - 3/2022 - only managed half a day sailing for £650. Rest of time spent in marina twiddling thumbs. Weather forecast was clearly too windy to mean going out was not going to be possible. Would have expected a call to abort/refund/options, rather than what we got.

    Completed the online RYA VHF STC course via Sea Regs and took my on site exam with them. Really good, would highly recommend them. Professional, accommodating, friendly, what more could you ask for. Special praise to both Jen and Bob for helping me achieve the qualification. I will look no further than sea regs in Plymouth for any further training I’ll be booking. Thanks.

    Attended the Powerboat Level 2 as a Mum with 2 teenage sons in August, the course was exceptional our trainer Ben was so skilled and patient and a fantastic teacher. I can not recommend this place highly enough, we have come away with essential knowledge and skills to build upon - anyone considering getting a boat or taking up the sport really should do this! I could not imagine getting the water without this knowledge. Thanks Sea Regs it was awesome!

    Had a great week completing the competent crew course. Ben Bowring was an outstanding teacher and it was an amazing experience. With Ben the experience was worth 10 times the price.

    Have completed half a dozen courses with the excellent searegs. Friendly staff, great instructors. Always have time to talk and give advice about career progression without trying to sell you another course. A deep well of experience and knowledge. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    I completed my STCW and other theory courses at Searegs. The school facilities, admin staff and instructors are first class, and there is plenty of free parking.
    Simon and Vicky gave me valuable knowledge for my way forward from their wealth of experience. I highly recommend training here to a high level.
