Law about Skippers Licenses : It is now law that everyone taking a vessel to sea has to have a skippers licence. It is also law that everyone operating a vessel with an engine of over 15hp on inland waters has to have a skippers licence.
These licenses are obtainable through SAMSA, (South African Maritime Safety Authority). We are authorised by SAMSA to teach these courses on their behalf.
Please find below a list of courses that we offer with appropriate SAMSA distance allocation for the course:
Category R: This covers all inland waters, estuaries, lagoons & ports
Category E: Vessels only going 1Nm offshore
Category C: Vessels going up to 15Nm offshore
Category B: Vessels going up to 40Nm offshore
