About Us

We offer internationally-recognised maritime training and preparation along with associated services with personalised tuition for recreational and professional industry certification.

Our Sea Survival courses are endorsed by ISAF and Yachting New Zealand. We utilise an indoor wave pool to provide a controlled environment for lifejacket/liferaft wet drills to help simulate conditions. SWNZ has been operating since 2003, we provide a variety of marine qualification preparation, along with professional boat and project management. Preparation includes one-one-one or small group tuition and safety tuition using boat-specific safety equipment. SWBENZ is based in Auckland, which gives easy access to the Waitemata Harbour, Weshaven Marina and Hauraki Gulf. However, we do offer nation-wide tuition, tailored to your requirements
