The sea can be a very dangerous place to work and play so it pays to be aware of the most common dangers. Being knowledgeable about what can go wrong on the water can help an awful lot in minimising the risks.
Sailing a ship across broad expanses of ocean can, by its very nature, be an isolating experience. Many challenges might be presented, particularly when it comes to dealing with sickness and other medical emergencies.
We are extremely lucky here at Seahaven Maritime Academy to enjoy frequent sightings of local, marine wildlife. Our stretch of the South coast is home to many aquatic species including dolphins and seals.
