A class designed specifically for kids and teens ages 12 to 16 who enjoy boating solo or with friends, while towing, fishing or just cruising here or at Catalina. At the end of this course you will be able to safely drive and manage a small powerboat and your parents will feel safer letting you take the boat for a spin.
It's a 16 hour fun packed course providing you with skills and knowledge to drive a powerboat safely. Course topics include: safety checks, proper set-up and preventative maintenance, maneuvering at low and high speed, towing, coming along side, buoy slalom in forward and reverse, anchoring, crew overboard and lots more. Everybody comes back with a big smile after the high speed stuff!
We also cover weather and tides, right of way rules, navigation, safety tips and boating laws in the classroom. You decide if you want to take the written exam to get your Small Powerboat Certification. Min 4/Max 9 students
