Powerboat Courses in Faro
Powerboat courses – Faro Marina
Our powerboat courses are made for those who want to be safe on the water and would rather have boating lessons on a boat, not in a classroom. We do however also teach Shorebased courses: Weather, Navigation and VHF.
We can offer private tuition on your boat or you can come and get training on ours. We are highly specialist providers and believe cramming 10+ people into a class deteriorates quality. All our practical courses are run with a maximum of 3 people and our classroom courses rarely exceed 2. This way, we get to know you personally and your style of boating.
Our most popular courses are the Small Powerboat and Rib Master (MCA Approved) and Powerboat Skipper. We also do own boat tuition courses, which ensure you receive the best possible quality training which quickly brings you to a competent and confident level in the operation of a powerboat.
Why choose Algarve Cruising Center
We are based in Faro in the heart of the Ria Formosa Lagoon. This sheltered salt water lagoon is the ideal spot to practice maneuvers, pilotage and navigation during your powerboat course.
Our School Boat
Our powerboat is a ATLANTIC 4.8 – perfect for the shallows of the lagoon. We can easily land on the beach. She´s light and responsive.
We can also run private courses on cabin boats with outboard or inboard engine. Contact us for more information.
