We provide powerboat training courses (almost) all year round in association with the Galway Hooker Sailing Club, which is an ISA recognized training center. We cover the Irish Sailing syllabus and upon course completion your certificate will be issued via Irish Sailing.
Note: This course is a taster and it is recommended to follow with the IS Level 2 National Powerboating Certificate course.
Note: This course is the “driving licence” of boating. At Galway Bay Boat Tours our variety of boats means that you will learn to handle both inboard and outboard engines and navigate using both console and tiller steer. It is also possible to receive tuition onboard your own boat.
Each course is a mix of shore/classroom based theory and on the water activity – more time is spent afloat to allow for more hands-on experience.
Ideally we need a minimum number to run the course – so rope in your mates or join in with another group and make new friends!
