Tell Me More


Learn from our 30 years of boating experience. No experience or license required!

Our classes are priced and based off what YOU want to learn, not just what we want to teach you! Our average lessons are 4 days, 2 hours each day. But if you just need a couple of "refresher hours" we provide those as well. The classes are private unless you want other people to learn with you. IE: Children, spouse, or friend. We offer the additional people at a substantial discount! Please keep in mind though the less distractions, the better the quality of the lesson.

  • Starting out at the dock, parking, electronics set up.
  • Navigating your local waterways, rules of the water.
  • Anchoring, drifting, speed control.
  • Waterskiing, tubing, swimming safely!
  • Beaching and parking in random spaces
  • Emergency procedures.
  • Fishing for all different species.
  • Towing other boats.
  • Navigating safely at night ( YES we will take you out at night)


  • You are responsible for not only your safety but the safety of your loved ones and other people on the water.
  • One of the biggest mistake new boat owners make is buying the wrong boat. IE: too small for their needs or too big for their abilities.
  • We teach you what equipment is worth buying and not. Trial and error in boating becomes VERY expensive and wasteful. Learn from our decades of knowledge!
  • Most important a boat is supposed to be fun, being nervous and not knowing how to do the things you want to do isn't. By the end of our course you will not only be more confident but you will have a friend on the water! We find people have more questions in the days and weeks after our course and we are more than happy to help you at no charge!
  • Are you going on vacation and would like to rent a boat? You will be ready!
  • Haven't taken your boat out in a long time and need a couple of refresher hours? You'll be ready!
  • Moving to a new marina or boating area? You'll be ready
  • Have you never trailered a boat before? We can take you from your home to the ramp and show you EVERYTHING you'll need to know to operate like a pro! (Yes even backing your trailer up) We can also take one of our boats onto our trailer if you want to learn how to before you buy!
  • Our friendly staff will treat you more like a friend than a customer. We find word of mouth is our best advertising and appreciate it when you pass on our information to a friend. When you refer a friend, you receive a special gift from us tailored just for you or your boat!
  • 4 days on a boat PRICELESS!

No boring classroom where you leave more confused and worried than when you walked in! You don't even need to own a boat to take our course. We can take you out on one of our boats and show you everything you want and need to know to safely drive a boat DAY or NIGHT! With over 30 years of boating experience our instructors will show you tricks of the trade and the knowledge you gain is only limited by the hours you spend with us!
