A truly unique, new programme, “Be a Captain!” was developed to you, who would like to get a touch of shipping! As part of the training you will get the basics of the inland navigation on the water, on the machines and piloting a boat. There is always an entry point, so you will be welcomed as a boatsman nominee, but by the end of the trip you can already be a proud captain. In the course of a 2.5-hour-programme we will provide you the basics on shipping in a light classroom class, although the classroom is a 115 ft boat in our case. Following the introduction you will be guided all around on the boat, we will be happy to allow you to get oily in the machine room during the regular checkup procedure before the trip. Following that we set sail and the training goes on allowing you to try yourself as a captain of the wheel.
On our programme the fleet captain of hajoznijo.hu (sea captain, boat pilot trainer) tries to persuade you avoiding to fell in love with shipping more :). The crew of M/S Deak Ferenc is guarantee for the good humor and the safety of the operation in case you make a mistake as a captain.
|TIP! The price is valid not for 1 person, but for a family! You can bring your family along allowing them to enjoy the sunshine while you prepare for your captain’s obligations. Also, this provides them an opportunity to admire you new skills.
