US Coast Guard Approved!

This two day, hands-on, on-the-water course is for anyone who wants to PRACTICE how to safely operate a small motorboat and improve their boathandling skills on actual boats.

The US Coast Guard has approved this course as a on-water supplement to the NASBLA Safe Boating Certificate. This is the perfect pairing for your state's boating safety education certificate, and candidates who pass the on-water and written US Powerboating test will receive US Powerboating SPBH Certification.These national and state approvals call for the course to include a total of six to eight hours of classroom sessions covering required education topics. We have listened to the feedback and now focusing on two days of instruction rather than one.
