Courses with BoatU.S.

Cost: $175

Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm
Duration: 3hrs

Safer-Boater has partnered with the BoatU.S. On-Water Training program to bring world class powerboat handling instruction to the greater Charleston area.

Classes are limited to four students per instructor to maximize time at the helm and offer students the chance to observe other students as they work through each maneuver. The course curriculum can be taken at the student's own pace, eliminating the need to commit a full weekend to an immersive training experience.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a two person minimum for courses. If that minimum is not met, you will be contacted to discuss rescheduling options.
