ABOUT BOATING SAFELY Course 
The foundation of any good boater is understanding the basic knowledge of how to boat safely. Our boating safely course is geared for the novice boater as well as the seasoned boater who has never had a boating safety course, and those who feel that their skills could use a refresher. The classroom education is applicable to both the teenager as well as adults.
 

At the successful completion of this class, you will have the basic knowledge and foundation required to obtain the Florida Safe Boating ID card. You will be issued certificates of completion and we will apply to the FWC to have them send you your Florida Boaters' ID. 

Most boating insurance companies offer discounts to boaters who successfully complete this boating safety course.
