Theres a place in Plymouth that does it this way.
Tim, If is genuinely part of a course no problem but If what you asking is can you sell the experience as a stand alone product and say it is part of a bigger course in order to avoid complying with legislation then I think you would be on pretty thin ice. There are centers before who have attracted the MCA's attention by classing their corporate entertainment/stag/hen do's and adrenaline rides on board powerboats and keelboats as RYA training when quite clearly they were not running RYA training.
That said the code does not cover PWC (although it will do at some point) but it does provide advice for local authority licensing schemes. I would say you need to talk to your Harbour Master because you will come under his ruling.
