Seawake Powerboat Training is based in Dinorwic Marina at Felinheli (Port Dinorwic) click here for our location. Dinorwic Marina is the only grade 2 listed historic Marina in Great Britain. It is perfectly situated being just 5 miles from either Bangor or Caernarfon on the banks of the Menai Straits.
Our boats can access the Menai Straits on most states of the tide – we are only restricted for an hour either side of low water springs – but we make allowances for this by either being out on the water or in the class room!
Our courses are taught by local experienced RYA qualified Power Boat Instructors. All our instructors have a vast amount of boating experience, not only do they teach using RYA guidelines they will also help you with valuable local knowledge of the Menai Straits and the cruising / boating areas around the North Wales coast. They really are a mine of boating information.
We have a variety of boats for you to experience on your Power Boat course with us. Different power boats handle differently – they are affected differently by tides and winds – we want to give you as much experience of power boats as possible while you are ‘in our hands’.
We have Ribs from 5.5m to 8m, walk around ‘hard boats’ from 5m to 6.5m, as well as larger cruising vessels available from 8m up to 12m.
Our primary teaching boats all have outboard engines ranging in size from 90 to 300 hp.
