How Our Private Navigation Boating Courses Will Make You a Better Boater

If you are new to boating, it can be scary to think that you will be in open water without an idea of where you are or how to get from point A to point B. S.E.A. Safe Boating offers our private navigation courses to educate and reassure new boaters about what boating entails and how to navigate the open water. This course will in turn make you a knowledgeable & safe boat navigator.

Our boater certification course teaches new boaters the essentials of navigation, including how to use GPS and nautical charts to guide yourself while driving a boat. If you are looking to take a trip via boat, our navigation courses will also teach new boaters how to plan a trip and how to navigate from point A to point B. This course ensures that you leave with significant knowledge of navigating a boat in a safe & efficient manner. Contact us today to schedule your private navigation course!
