Why RentalBoat.com Boating Course? Because you can’t learn how to drive a boat in a classroom or by book… 

Are you new to boating? Maybe you are looking to buy a boat, but don’t have any boating experience. Here at RentalBoat.com we have the top South Florida boating course that was designed to get you on the water and handle a boat like a pro.  Our United States Coast Guard captains will “show you the ropes” so that you may operate your boat safely with your family and friends.  Also, when renting a boat from us, you will automatically be approved to not have a captain.

Our “Boating Instruction 101” course is our entry level course that consist of 3 hours of hands-on instruction from our boat with our USCG approved captain. You will be learning to operate our boats here at the marina on the water, not in a classroom. By the end of the 3 hours, you will have the confidence and skills to take one of our boats out yourself.  Your family and friends will think you have been boating for years, we guarantee it!

Hear from our customers:

I learned how to drive a boat from the captain’s at the RentalBoat.com Boating Course.  There is absolutely no way to learn how to drive a boat in a classroom or from a book only. Having hands on boat instruction was a major help and now I am confident in running my Sea Ray with my family.  The captain showed me how to anchor near the sandbar appropriately with 2 anchors which has been great. After completing the course, I had one of the captains come onto my new boat and train me specifically on my boat as it is a twin engine inboard.  The captain was very informative and I happy to say, I am now helping family members to drive their own boat!   Thanks again and I highly recommend if you are new to booking or want to learn from the pros.”  –  Jimmy Mesman
