“Know Your Stuff” Safety and Boating Operation Instruction
Boating is a lot of fun, but it’s also serious – you want your family and friends to know that you know what you’re doing when they join you on a vessel.
Captain Russ has decades of personal and professional time on the water and during those years he’s seen his share of mishaps, most of them preventable. With a little instruction and actual practice, he can help you avoid a good many those mishaps, both large and small.
Instruction is one-on-one on your boat or ours, so you get personalized boating lessons while learning the best way possible: hands-on, on the water. While written instructions can be valuable, nothing gives you the confidence and know-how like being at the helm of the boat.
What will I learn?
- Rules of navigation
- Emergency procedures
- Boat operation
- Basic boat equipment and maintenance for safety
- Trailer handling
Can we use my boat?
Yes. You also have the option to use our 24-foot Carolina Skiff, an excellent craft for learning operational skills.
How much does it cost?
Private instruction is $200 per hour using our vessel or $100 per hour using your vessel. A one-hour minimum is required.
