The world’s best value, instructional and easy to use coastal navigation training system!

Thank you for your interest in the Coastal's Easy! program. 

SkippaMate Marine Training & Services have been operating a maritime training business for many years. We developed The Coastal's Easy! program as a very low cost video training program to assist people in understanding the basics of coastal navigation.

OUR GUARANTEE: We are so confident of the Coastal's Easy! training program that upon completion of the online exercises we will provide you with a FREE coastal navigation assessment and a FREE report advising you if you will be successful completing a 3rd party assessment. If you are unsuccessful in the 3rd party assessment we will refund your money IN FULL. No questions asked!

The Coastal's Easy! program has been developed on the basis that coastal navigation is based on 3 important areas of knowledge:

  1. Knowing where you are
  2. Knowing where you are going to, and
  3. Knowing how to get there

You will learn how to achieve the answers to those 3 components in the first 3 chapters of the program. Everything else that we teach you will be a bonus. Remember you do not need to be a mathmetician, simple add and subtract is all that is required.
