Beginning Boating

Beginning Boating is an introductory short course designed for people who are new to boating and aren’t yet ready to take on the skipper’s role. This mobile friendly course covers the basics to help you become an informed crew member and to be more confident and relaxed on the water this summer.

What will I learn? You’ll learn the basics to help make your day on the water enjoyable including:

  • Common nautical terms
  • Trip planning
  • Lifejacket selection
  • Boating safety
  • Basic boating rules
  • Preparing for the unexpected

The course is easy to use and understand and is broken into separate sections, with an introductory video or audio clip for each. It includes short knowledge checks so that you can assess your learning as you progress.

When and where? This introductory course, which is perfect for anyone new to boating, is accessible online from this Beginning Boating web page. It is always ready and waiting for you to complete, at your convenience, and you can revisit key aspects of it whenever you choose.

If, however, you are interested in taking on the responsibilities of a skipper, we would highly recommend the more comprehensive Day Skipper course.

How much does it cost? It's only $35 and, once completed, you can proudly print off your Beginning Boating course completion certificate.
