    “Hands-on driving instruction on your own boat is the key to safer boating. For first time boaters, it’s not enough to simply get your operator card and cast off. Talk to us today about private instruction clinics for either power or sail, single or twin engine up to 75ft, and we’ll help you to have a more enjoyable, safe summer on the water. All our instructors are experienced, professional captains that are both licensed AND insured.”
