Private Boating Instruction in Venice and Siesta Key Florida

We Teach Boating!

 

Boating provides us with a sense of Adventure. It’s a great way to spend the day with family and friends. Fishing, exploring new places, restaurants or just getting out to enjoy a front row seat to a spectacular sunset. These are all great reasons to enjoy boating. Being comfortable with your skills and knowledgeable of your boat and surroundings will ensure each day you spend on the water is fun and safe.

Maybe you are just thinking of renting a boat or maybe joining a boat club. We provide boating instruction on how to safely and comfortably handle a boat. This is one on one training with you and our Captain.

New to boating or just have a new boat that you are unfamiliar with? Owning and operating a new boat can be a stressful task. Let us help you take the stress out of boating. We offer private one on one instruction with a US Coast Guard Certified Captain.

Just some of the topics we will cover with you;

·         Docking - Know how to safely maneuver and dock your boat. Wind and current are constant issues that many boaters have difficulty in trying to master.

·         Electronics – GPS navigation and bottom finder. Need help understanding all the gizmos and gadgets? We can help.

·         Boat safety requirements.

·         Rules of the Road, signs and postings that you need to understand to be safe.

It is highly recommended that you complete the Florida Safe Boating Course online before beginning your one on one training. The Florida Safe Boating Course is required for anyone operating a boat on Florida waterways that was born on or after January 1st, 1988.

Our hands on class usually takes about 3-4 hours and the cost is $199.00. If you aren't comfortable by that time we will work with you until you are!
