Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Did the Level 2 power boat course with Louie last weekend. Just 2 of us on it and a very personalised experience - Louie was kind enough to organise the course at the weekend so i didn't have to take any time off work.
First day was loads of time on the water, getting to know the boat and how to do the necessary checks. We then sped off to try our hands at driving. We even managed a few manouvres around the marina and offshore. Next day we spent a few hours in the classroom and then out again for the final speed tests and brushing up on what we learnt the day before.
It was great fun and Louie was an excellent teacher, polite, knowledgeable and professional. And a LOT of fun!
Thx Louie!

Following numerous recommendations my husband and I participated in a two day course with Louie. We were thoroughly impressed with the scope of information provided and the professional and patient manner of Louie’s tutoring. During our return to the marina on day two, we witnessed a boat in the distance, with the single occupant making a mayday hand signal. Louie immediately took control of our boat and reached the distressed occupant within seconds. It was evident the boat was sinking!! My husband and I felt sheer panic as did the skipper of the other boat, Louie remained so calm, we were so shocked, giving clear and precise instructions to the distressed skipper, within seconds he had managed to stabilise the stricken boat and reassure the rest of us. We towed the boat back to the marina where the boat was secured and the skipper ultimately required medical assistance probably as a consequence of the shock. Louie was an absolute hero who was clearly unfazed, we also learnt that he’d also registered the location on his rescue point, enabling divers to locate the motor part that had sheered off, potentially saving the stricken skipper thousands of euros. To top the day off, our car battery failed in the car park, I managed to catch Louie....clearly the 4th emergency service but after a failed attempt to get us moving, he drove us home!! I would not hesitate in recommending Louie for any boating course, he’s a gentleman, an experienced seaman and a fantastic tutor........what a day!!!!

Excellent 2 day course with Louie, really interesting course and learnt so much more than I expected, it covers every aspect of boat handling and gives you confidence on the water. Louie is a very good instructor for the course, he is very knowledgable and skilled, and is great at explaining everything clearly and demonstrates everything very well. Would highly recommend using Lanzarote powerboat services for anybody wanting to do this course.

I was curious to see Lanzarote from another perspective and I had been recommended by a local to get in contact with Norman from Lanzarote Powerboat Services.

Norman gave a short brief of what was entailed on the sunset tour, the run down was that we would leave the harbour at 5pm and follow a route along the coast towards Papagayo and Los Lobos, returning at 7-8pm.

My partner and I signed up and the following weekend we joined Captain Sparrow and Liz. There was little to no wind and the water looked like glass, ideal for spotting wildlife.

Within 10 MINUTES we spotted a massive pod of dolphins that would play on the bow of the rib for up to 30 minutes!! It was such a magical moment for us.

The tour continued while we enjoyed the unique landscape of the islands and watched a perfect sunset followed by a moonrise.

I would highly recommend anyone to join Captain Sparrow on board. It was just an awesome experience that I will never forget.

Thank you so much!

Living in the north of Scotland meant that I'd delayed my RYA Level 2 course until the spring when conditions improved. Doing the course while on holiday in Lanzarote (November) seemed far more appealing so my son and I booked the course with Lanzarote Powerboat Services and Norman.

Puerto Calero itself is a stunning place with lots to do and look at (though no fishing in the marina :( ). Norman was very friendly, experienced and professional, relaxed but at the same time ensured we had a good understanding of all the theoretical and practical elements of the course - with many opportunities to practice and ask questions. Norman was also very patient with my 12 year old son which was good to see.

Overall we both enjoyed the course thoroughly and would have no hesitation in doing more courses with Norman in the future. I certainly feel more able and confident in taking my own boat out and practising what I learnt on the course with Norman.

I recently completed Powerboat course with Norman whilst on family holidays. Have to say, that this was one of the most enjoyable parts of the whole trip - learning a life skill in great holiday environment and sunny weather makes it really attractive (watch for those flying fish)! The course itself is great and the way Norman delivers it, makes it really positive experience and fun... not to mention the look on faces of my family when I took them out in a boat!!!
Fully recommend to anyone considering water sports!

I had a one to one level two course with Norman. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Norman is very friendly and relaxed,professional at teaching and giving confidence to get through the course. The two day course was extended to three due to weather Norman was flexible with time table all based around safety. The marina is very clean and the surroundings are stunning.
I would highly recommend this course,
Once again i would like to thank Norman for a very enjoyable course.

A very hands on approach that left me feeling that I went from no experience so a level where with practice I could become very comfortable. He rigorously goes through the syllabus but as a process towards competence rather than a routine. The boat is high powered and very maneuverable. Norman is clearly a very experienced instructor and the right guy to learn from

Excellent course and learnt loads over the 2 days.. From basic navigation, GPS and plotting courses, to boat handling.

Norman is very informative and makes the course very interesting.

Within the first 2 hours, you're on the water getting a feel of the high powered RIB.

Highly recommended.
