Mark Vining delivers a dynamic and information-packed, one-day course in boating safety. The text book, illustrative slides, and lots of props and actual equipment make for a powerful presentation. Mark punctuates everything with his own personal experiences on a myriad of waterways. I came away from the class with my boater's license and just as important, peace of mind, knowing that I understand what it means to be SAFE on the water. Highly recommend!

Mark Vining is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructor. He was easily able to keep 2 teenagers interested and engaged. Our family appreciated the convenience of an in-home training and would definitely recommend Mark at Boat Safe CT to friends.

The Instructor was very knowledgeable and made the class enjoyable. Dedicated to boating safety, even offered to orally read the test for those with trouble reading.

Mark Vining was a great instructor. We took the class in Darien. The class was fun and informative. Looking forward to a weekend on the water!

Mark was amazing. Mark is extremely knowledgeable, easy to understand, entertaining and provided top notch service from the start of the project to the final event. He came to our home and by the end of our session my husband, my daughter and I had our safe boating license. Mark was equipped with a printer and provided our actual license before he left our home. We highly recommend Mark Vining. We feel confident that our knowledge will keep us and those around us safe.

Mark Vining runs Boat Safe CT. He just taught me for the PWC license. He has more experience than anyone else in CT and with his help passing the test was easy but more importantly I feel confident understanding how to boat safely.

Mark is phenomenal. He came to my home and certified my family with a very entertaining and outgoing personality. He truly makes learning easy but super informative at the same time. Had 3 children (teen and pre-teens) and he was very patient with them and took his time to make sure everyone knew the information before he moved on. Could not thank him enough, this is defiantly the way to go and his company is top notch.
