Power Boating for Youth (ages 10-15)

A great way to learn and have fun!

BoaterSkills.ca and marinas in Ontario are teaming up this season to bring you powerboat handling instruction for the kids!

Power boating for Youth is a three hour practical clinic for those who already have their Pleasure Craft Operator Card. Student exercises and instructor demonstrations will prepare you to operate a single engine powerboat of between 6 and 9 metres in length during daylight hours and under safe marine conditions. Instruction is all hands-on and we provide the boat – no classroom, no written test.

3 hour clinic includes

  • Knots, lines and fenders
  • docking and close-quarters maneuvering
  • open water operation
  • anchoring
  • basic navigation and collision regulations
  • Crew-overboard and distress signalling

Course Certification

Students who successfully demonstrate basic powerboat operation skills will be presented with a BoaterSkills.ca Basic Powerboat Operator Certificate. Our courses are recognized by major Insurance Brokers in Ontario as important competency training.

Start the kids off safely this boating season!

Develop their confidence, knowledge and the boat-handling skills that all powerboat operators require and enjoy more quality time boating with family and friends.
