Recently booked a 2 hour intro course to sailing with Watercooled Abu Dhabi. My instructor was competent and upbeat. He had a clear enthusiasm for sailing, and the interest easily rubbed off on me! He kept the beginning "lecture" short and sweet to maximize hands on experience. Once launched, he was great at both instructing me as to what I... More

I contacted Watercooled on morning of 31st to see if I could arrange a session that day. Unfortunately they were busy so I enquired if it would be possible to use the voucher in 2016 and was immediately... More

We booked a 4 hour fishing trip in the last minute through fishfishme.com. Capt. Elner was very knowledgeable took good care of my family that also included two kids. The boat was in good shape and our family of four were quite comfortable. The boat could easily fit another 2 or 3 more people. The charter also arranged plenty of... More

My wife bought me the Level 1 RYA sailing course that lasted two days as something to do whilst she was away from AD. The instructors were very friendly and knowledgable and took time to ensure I understood the small amount of theory and the practical in detail. It's clear that sailing is in the blood of the instructors as... More

After several attempts at learning the ropes of dinghy sailing as a nervous crew member in the UK, I found the RYA Level 1 course at Watercooled, Abu Dhabi, to be ideal. It was two full days of some theory but more practice of getting out on the water and taking control of the boat by myself. Weather-wise it was... More

I've always wanted to take sailing lessons and what better place to learn than Abu Dhabi--lots of sun and coastal winds. Found Watercooled online and called to set up my beginning sailing lesson. Staff was very helpful and answered all my questions over the phone. It was pretty windy on the first day--the staff really went over and above to... More
