Why Flying Fish?
Flying Fish pioneered fast track courses for Yachtmasters and Watersports Instructors in the UK and Greece in 1993. In 1996 we ran our first Yachtmaster programme in Sydney and incorporated Flying Fish Australia shortly afterwards.
Today, in Sydney, we welcome more than 2000 customers a year to a comprehensive range of courses for sailors, boat drivers and watersports enthusiasts.
With over 25 years’ experience in the UK, Australia, Canada and Greece, we believe we offer the best courses you will find, in the world’s best training locations.
Our experienced team of qualified coaches and instructors will guide you through your course in the friendly and professional style that is the hallmark of Flying Fish.
Check-in to paradise.
Our training centre is located in a spectacular setting at Sydney’s Middle Harbour Yacht Club.
We are surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches and picturesque coves, perfect for exploring by water.
Sydney Harbour, Australia’s favourite yachting playground, is our backyard and provides us with a superb training environment.
Offshore we explore the New South Wales coast and run adventure passages to Tasmania, world heritage listed Lord Howe island and the tropical paradise of the Whitsunday Islands.
