The Neilson Watersports & Yachtmaster Academy delivered by UKSA


Like most businesses in the Travel Industry, we’ve faced unprecedented challenges, and  we have done everything within our power to negotiate the ever-changing circumstances surrounding, not only the Coronavirus pandemic, but also, the impact of Brexit upon how we do what we do.

Unfortunately, we’ve been forced to temporarily suspend our UKSA academy programme; however, we will be bringing this back as soon as soon as possible. Please check back here for further information.


With a shortage of qualified Yachtmaster & Watersports instructors to meet the demands of the ever-expanding activity holiday industry, we’ve teamed up with our brilliant training partners UKSA, based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.


Working for Neilson is something that anyone with a passion for the outdoor life should get the opportunity to enjoy, and we aim to make these opportunities, and the qualifications required accessible to all.

The Neilson Academy scheme helps to remove some of the financial barriers faced by many who want to break into the active industry, and UKSA delivers the highest quality training. Together we’re bringing through the next generation of Neilson talent, so click below to find out more:
