This course is the same as the USPS Seamanship Course but with the addition of portions of several USPS
Seminars (GPS, How to read Navigational Charts, Boat Handling, etc.). The content of this course is basically what is necessary to obtain a Captain's license. All boaters are subject to nautical rules and regulations. Skippers should learn and respect traditional boating courtesies. This course is meant to be of interest to the entire family - older children are welcome. We encourage your family to attend as a group.

These courses are open to all members of the public, from teenagers upwards. For those under 21, successful completion of one of these courses will enable that person to obtain a Florida Operators License.
