ABC Safe Boating Course Schedule

Too often new boaters and even seasoned ones believe boating is easy. (“I know how to drive a boat.”). Boating is a learned skill that can be as dangerous, or even more so, than driving a car.

For 60 years, we have provided boaters with unsurpassed education on the water, in the classroom and online. Our educational opportunities go beyond the basics to help you and your family be the best boaters you can be.

By enrolling in America’s Boating Course you will learn navigation
rules, water sports safety, docking, emergency situations, local knowledge,
and other valuable boater safety skills and boating information. You will participate in Hands-on demonstrations and are able to ask questions during each chapter.
After completion, you will earn your NASBLA Safe Boaters’ Credentials.

Did you know if you were born on or after January 1st, 1988 you MUST take a Boating Education Class to Legally operate a motorboat 10HP or more.
