Why train with Flying Fish

Flying Fish was formed 22 years ago by waters sports enthusiasts who loved the outdoors and believed that training in best conditions helps improve skills quicker than training in the cold!

What makes Flying Fish so different are the experienced, friendly staff, most of which have been with Flying Fish for over 15 years and, of course, the training locations.

During the Northern Hemisphere summer (May to October) you could be in Vasiliki, Greece – arguably Europe’s top all round water sports locations. With its warm water, relaxed lifestyle, amazing conditions, incredible mountain biking and legendary night life it is no wonder it is so popular.

During the winter months (October to April) Flying Fish moves to Sydney, Australia where the warm trade winds make Sydney a superb place to learn to sail. You will find sailing on Sydney Harbour incredible! This, and the friendly, laid back environment makes for a perfect setting for Instructor training. The beaches are world famous and, since there is so much to see and do, it’s no wonder millions flock each year to experience life down under.

Train with Flying Fish and we guarantee that you will learn a new skill, qualify as a professional instructor, travel the world and have an amazing time with professional, knowledgable instructors.

Our Instructor courses have been developed over 20 years so we know there is an option for everyone, beginner or advanced. Whether you are changing career, on a gap year or just taking time out to try something new, joining Flying Fish will change your life,
