Chichester Marine Training and Portsmouth Marine Training are working in partnership to provide you with a high quality service at the best possible price. Our staff are enthusiastic because we love what we do, being out on the water and guiding others to enjoy being on the water. It’s exhilarating at times, it’s peaceful at times, but we’ll teach you how to be safe all of the time.
