We are proud to offer this hands-on course developed by our staff of USCG and State of Connecticut DEP certified instructors. You will learn the skills that are used by seasoned Norwalk area boaters to safely navigate and deal with situations found in and around our area and Long Island Sound. There are many on-line & classroom courses out there for the novice boater which cover state regulations and boating concepts, but very few that deal with true on-the-water skills and local knowledge. We have found these skills can quickly be learned through a few sessions with a seasoned Norwalk Island Captain.

It is often said “If you can boat in Norwalk, you can boat anywhere”. Our training will not only help you to avoid costly mistakes, but will help you make informed, safe decisions when you need it most. You have invested a great deal of time and money into your boat, now learn to handle whatever the Sound throws your way and keep your crew safe on your voyages.
