Boating Education

We provide on-water training to boat owners from licensed captains certified to teach the National Safe Boating Council’s (NSBC) approved on-water practical boat handling course.  This course is taught on the customer’s boat, so they learn on their equipment, and covers four sessions.  The primary areas are Introduction to safe power boating; precision docking and close-quarters maneuvering; open-water boat handling, and open-water advanced maneuvers (i.e. handling emergencies, anchoring & beaching).  Here is a link to this course information from NSBC.

We also provide consultation and advice to boat owners on properly outfitting, maintaining, and safely using their boats and equipment.
