No experience necessary!

Whether you love boating and want to gain confidence at the helm, you're considering buying or renting a boat and want to learn new skills, or you're just curious about boating, the BoatUS Foundation has partnered with Prince William Marina to offer you the BoatUS Foundation On-Water Training program. It is a fun, easy, and affordable way to develop your sea legs!

There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our participants. Sometimes weather can be a limiting factor on the water. If the weather forecast is questionable, we will contact you no later than the morning of Friday, August 10th. Must be 18 years of age.
