Boat Safe Connecticut is following the requests and guidelines of state and federal agencies regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). In concern for all prospective and current students and our staff, we suspended or cancelled all our Public and publicly scheduled group classes, including Boat Club, Park/Rec. and Yacht Club classes until a future date to be determined. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Boat Safe Connecticut however, has specialized in private classes since our inception. We offer private classes with minimum students, including classes for families with school age individuals home at this time. For more information and a note from the owner, please click below to see our "Classes and Costs" page.
When public classes resume:
Our focus is on you to make sure you have the knowledge to operate a vessel safely, and pass the D.E.E.P. provided final class exam. Doing so enables you to immediately purchase your nationally accepted, permanent "Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation" (C.P.W.O. - boating and personal watercraft operator's 'license') issued by the D.E.E.P. Our instructors have years of experience teaching boating safety in Connecticut, with State of Connecticut certified teachers and USCG Licensed Captains on staff.
Boat Safe Connecticut, LLC is the only Better Business Bureau Accredited, DEEP Approved, "Safe Boating Course Agent" education provider in the State of CT. Go to the BBB.org link below for reviews.
