Edinburgh Marine Academy

Powerboat Adventures, Marine Training, and Commercial Services

The Edinburgh Marine Academy offers RYA and MCA training for leisure and commercial boat users, across Scotland and Europe.  The Academy provides courses for those looking to purchase a boat and safely navigate it around coastal waters, up to those looking to work in the commercial sector.  The Academy also offers bespoke training solutions such as own boat tuition or refresher courses, and is able to deliver all aspects of training at our Edinburgh base or at your preferred location.

In 2021 we introduced a variety fast boat trips leaving from our base in South Queensferry.  Trips include 1 hour trips around the iconic bridges, and longer trips to see the Islands and wildlife of the Firth of Forth. Group trips and bespoke bookings are welcomed, please contact us by phone or email with your enquiry.

New for 2022 we are offering RYA/MCA Motor cruising courses in our new training vessel ‘ Forth Adventurer’.  We offer all training courses from RYA Helmsman, right up to MCA/RYA Yachtmaster Offshore examinations.
