Boat Licence All day Program
Our comprehensive program is perfect for the person who has little to no boating experience. You get more than a boat licence, you learn how to drive a boat safely. From pre launch checks and boat launching, to on water skill training finishing up with boat retrieval and recovery. By the end of the day, we’ve gone through every thing you need to know.
“More than just a boat licence course, this course is designed to produce safe, capable, confident small boat operators”.
Course includes full theory sessions, NSW boat licence exam and on water practical boat training.
After the course all you need do is present your certificate of competency to NSW maritime, pay for the boat licence and hit the water. No log books; no exams at Maritime.

I undertook your general boating license course on Sunday 28/08/11 in Hunter with trainer Lloyd Campbell. I would like to pass on my praise of Mr Campbell the structure of your course. Lloyd was knowledgeable, patient and one of the best trainers of ANY course I have been on. I will recommend your company and in particular Lloyd Campbell to any of my friends family who wish to get ANY licence that you provide training for. Thanks for an enjoyable experience.
