Meet our Instructors


Galileo Staff

We are young at heart and enjoy making the learning experience fun, realistic and practical. Galileo’s team of instructors are dedicated professionals in their respective fields of maritime training.

Classroom time is kept to a minimum so there is plenty of time spent in or on the water, at sea in our own training vessels, tenders, life-boats and rescue ribs including training in the school of engineering and our advanced firefighting facilities.

Our instructors are internationally certified and have a world of experience to pass on to you.
