Learn to Powerboat Like a Pro

Handling a power boat requires more than the ability to turn a key.  There are Rules of the Road to follow while underway and proper handling of any size power boat comes into play when underway, docking, anchoring, picking up moorings, passing or overtaking other boats. Boat systems need constant checking and troubleshooting. Navigation skills insure you stay clear of hazards and shallow water. Safety for all aboard is synonymous with having a good day on the water which is why we offer boating courses through our powerboat lessons.

Our powerboat lessons are a great way to introduce yourself to basic skills or fine tune your current boat handling skills.

      • Our 4-Hour Skill Courses are a great way to get introduced to specific areas of boat handling, brush up on your skills or get more in-depth training.
      • Our 8-Hour Skill Course is great for beginners who want to learn more in-depth skills or people with some previous experience on board and want to brush up on existing skills and expand knowledge.
      • Our 2-Day Intensives take you from an introductory level to advanced and give you the confidence to move from runabouts to big cruising yachts, and introduce family and friends to the joys of boating.
