Marine Cadet Safety Boating Program with Captain @ downtown Vancouver!

Vancouver and the west coast is a place largely surrounded by coastal waters, the chances that your children will be at sometime involve in boating activities for recreation or transport is high. We have designed this program with the goal of making them conscious & alert of existing dangers on the water. During the training, we will also have them familiarized with safety procedures & onboard equipment, basic operations & seamanship.

The program is a 5-hour training done onboard a real heated yacht with hands-on practice and realistic exercise to simulate real-life boating events.

Students are to bring their lunch (Onboard beverages are available). Maximum 15 per class. Age minimum of 12 years old.

At the end of the program, all students will be able to host their parents for a beautiful City Cruise, where they will have the chance to demonstrate their acquired seamanship knowledge! (date to be determined during XMass holidays)

All participating students will also be eligible to have the Captains assistance in obtaining the official Government Pleasure Craft Operators Card certificate, which is valid for life (this option is optional, and would be an additional 45 dollars)
