  • My 2 daughters (aged 14 and 11) and I spent a wonderful 5 days on the water, to achieve our Competent Crew accreditation, under the confident, capable care of Tom White. Instructive, inspiring and really, really good fun! Great facilities, lovely food and the company of wild dolphins - what more could anyone ask for? We loved it! Thank you Tom and all the JP team!​
