Boat Training

At Safely Moored, we offer superior hands on boat training. Our courses are designed with all experience levels in mind.

Your Boat, Your Dock, Your Waterway!

South Florida leads the nation in boating accident fatalities. A review of state accident records for 2006 shows that 86 percent of all fatal accidents involved boaters older than 21 who were NOT required to have formal boating safety education or training. Florida law requires that only boaters 21 & younger attend formal boater safety training.

However, if that age requirement were expanded, as many as 20 lives could be saved each year, according to the state’s chief boating law administrator. National statistics show that boaters who receive formal water safety education and training are 25 percent less likely to be involved in an on-the-water collision than those who do not.

At Safely Moored, education & training is our mission. An educated and trained boater is more confident and as a result, more competent. We are proud to have formed a company dedicated to being a part of making our waterways safe and enjoyable.
