On The Water Training- Basic Powerboating
Our Safe Powerboat Handling Course will give you the skills and confidence necessary to operate a single engine powerboat in familiar waters. This course is a two day practical hands on boat handling course unlike most of the other theoretical classroom courses that DO NOT include driving an actual boat. Our experienced staff will bring you through both "Close Quarters and "High Speed Maneuvering". We have trained over 3000 new boaters in the art of seamanship and welcome the opportunity to help you!
Power Boat Course Testimonial
"Great Experience and Course! Found the whole experience to be exactly what was needed for my future pleasure of boating in Florida."
Satisfied Powerboat Student
Our classes are designed to be dynamic and challenging. This is a two day course that normally runs from 10 am - 3 pm each day. You will spend 75% of your time on-the-water both days. Please bring whatever you wish to have for lunch and bottled water to stay hydrated. Alternatively, if you wish to have a break for lunch and bathroom break, we can go to one of the waterfront restaurants such as Kaluz or Coconuts, also great for practicing docking. If you choose to have lunch at one of the restaurants, we suggest that it be a "working lunch" and your instructor will cover subjects such as Rules of The Road, Navigation, storms, etc., so we maximize our time. Please wear appropriate clothing to provide cover and comfort based on the weather of the day. Of course, sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses are strongly recommended. Please wear closed-toed boating shoes or light soled tennis shoes. No black soles (bottoms of the shoes) or flip flops please.
Suggested Age: ages 10 on up.
If you are interested in reserving a spot we just need credit card details (number, expiration date, CVV code) and we don't charge the card until day-of-class or if you "no-show".
