A five-day live-aboard course offering Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Certification. This mini-vacation is for students who have completed Basic Keelboat (or have significant small boat experience) and desire to achieve a high level of competence and self-sufficiency.

The emphasis is on learning while having fun in a week-long course voyaging through the Florida Keys.


Ideal for couples who aspire to the cruising lifestyle, while covering the full course agenda for Basic Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Certification, special emphasis is put on the “big three” areas that charter companies look for when you book;

1. Anchoring – securely overnight, taking into account all factors including weather changes.
2. Maneuvering under power in a confined area- your first test when taking the helm of your charter boat.
3. Navigation – knowing precisely where you are at all times, and how to get to your destination; how to manage in restricted visibility making maximum use of all available data.

During this highly-recommended course, you will learn to relate the ecology and topographical features.
