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% of all fatal accidents involve boaters older than 21 who are not required to have formal boating safety education or training. Florida law requires that only boaters 21 and younger attend formal boater safety training.

However, if those age requirements 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% less likely to be involved in an on-the-water collision than those who do not.

At Safely Moored, education and training are 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 part of making our waterways safe and enjoyable.
