These fundamentals are a must for safe boating, but it goes a step further with “Local Knowledge” – the challenges and complexities of boating on the Cape Fear Waterways (River, Ocean and AICW). This overview of what you need to know about our coastal environment is held on the second Saturday 28 February (9:00 AM – 1:00 PM). Finally, where better to learn about boating than on-the-water?

The course closes with a 2 ½ hour training cruise to tie everything together and show you firsthand what the local waterways are like. The “Local Knowledge” and “On-the-Water” features are exclusive to this course. Total cost is $70 per person or 2 family members can share the textbook at the discounted price of $115.
