LEYSF is pleased to offer a NASBLA-approved Safe Boater education program that complies with the law (“In order to operate a motorboat of 10hp or greater, FL law requires anyone born on or after Jan 1, 1988, to successfully complete an approved boating safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education ID Card.”). This course includes taking the test at the end of the training.
Our youth boater education follows Florida’s FWC How to Boat Smart boater education course (aka “The Bobber Course”) in addition to hand’s on power boating practice. The “Bobber Card” course teaches the content knowledge, it does not provide for any on-the-water skills development. The US Coast Guard and NASBLA have identified 30+ specific boat handling skills that all beginning boat operators should be able to demonstrate. LEYSF teaches these on-the-water skills as part of its safe boater education training.
We teach youth ages 12 -17 years and the course takes 16 hours.
Cost: $300 with $25 deposit due at registration.
