Over half our students have previous boating experience and just want to feel a little more comfortable on their latest purchase.

Instruction Aboard Your Vessel


If you currently own a vessel, this is by far, the best way to learn. Since every vessel possesses different handling characteristics, why not become familiar with your vessel while learning on the water. In addition to your personal instruction, the Captain will gladly inspect your vessel and make recommendations as to how to better improve her ability or seaworthiness.
