Our Story.
The Above & Beyond Boating story...
Above & Beyond Boating began in 2011, and we are passionate and dedicated to making sure you achieve your boating dreams. The founding principal of the business and all of our training programs is to ensure that you use your boat as often and safely as possible.

The programs we have created and deliver to the boating community enable you to choose your pathway. You can use our online courses to develop your skills and enjoy world-class coaching to implement on your boat. We are the world leaders for bringing E-Learning to your home, office and boat. We are based in Sydney, the nature of online training means we are able to offer support all over the world for your online training.

The founder, Neil Driscoll's extensive teaching and skippering experience began in Chichester Harbour at the Hayling Island Sailing Club and has taken him all over the world. Neil is qualified as a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Yachtmaster Ocean Instructor for power and sail, Office of Maritime Communications (OMC) Remote Assessor for radio licencing, and Australian Sailing (AS) Sea Survival Instructor and safety equipment auditor. 

We started as a practical and classroom training company and have been specialising in online courses since 2015. This practical experience of delivering courses in person and on the water for 20 years, before building our first online course, comes through at every stage of the learning experience. Our online learning courses are the industry favourites, due to the customer experience, competitive pricing, incredible completion rates (the industry average is 30%, we operate on 99%) and delivering professional, clear, effective training in a convenient, structured and effective way.

We believe in helping everyone in our community achieve their boating dreams and help them follow the rules of ABB in their boating. Make sure you join our mailing list to get your complimentary training resources straight to your inbox and don't miss our next event.
