New York State Safe Boating Courses

Classes offered:

****Mid-Island Maritime Services Complete Safe Boaters Package****
This course includes the New York State Safe Boaters Course (the 2 week or 4 week version) and a weekend or evening hands on power/sail boat session. All instructors are USCG Licensed Captains. Students are able to use their boat or any boat in our training boat fleet. We have 6 training boats from 14' to 31' along with a full service marina to offer our students.

****New York State Safe Boaters Course (Classroom sessions only for 4 weeks)****
This course is the general safe boaters course for New York State. Classes will meet once a week for 2 hours for 4 weeks. Text are provided.

****New York State Safe Boating "Crash Course"(2 weeks)****
We do realize here at Mid-Island that everyone does not have 4 weeks to devote to the safe boating course so what we did was create the "crash course" version of the basic NYS course. The same amount of material is covered but classes meet once a week for 4 hours for 2 weeks (breaks will be included). At the close of the class (week 2) students can opt to take the exam or they can make an appointment with the instructor to take the exam at a later date (no more then a week after the class).

Note: All hands on boating instructors are mandated by Mid-Island Marine Services, Inc.
