I did the day skippers course - fantastic course. Very knowledgeable crowd that are all passionate about what they do. Absolutely blown away by Mark and the team constantly going to extra mile at all times to help out - from lifts to lunch to getting my eye test and photos done. These guys always made an effort to not only make this whole experience educational, but they also made it amazingly enjoyable. Cannot recommend enough!

We had a great family outing on the water and the sailing experience was one of note. Sailing through the Knysna Heads is a must do bucket list adventure.

An engaging experience that teaches you the ropes (pun!) , leaves you with skills to commandeer and as a bonus... the chance to meet interesting folks with a shared passion of life. Would recommend if the above appeals to you.

Have just completed a Day Skipper Course with Southern Yachting Academy in Knysna, South Africa. Had great time and learnt a lot about sailing. Mark and his team were top notch and very professional while at the same time making the experience a lot of fun. Should you wish to learn to sail or just experience a day or two on the water I would thoroughly recommend contacting them.
