All of our courses are held on the water and in real conditions. We specialize in private courses on your boat, on your waterway and at your dock.

New Vessel Delivery

Let me ask you this?

I know that you have been boating for 20 years, but if the captain on your boat has a heart attack or is injured, could you safely navigate the boat back to your dock? Could you properly use the radio and call for assistance? If you have an electrical malfunction on your vessel, can you safely get back to port without your GPS? Yes, you have radar on your boat, but do you know how to safely use it? Do you know the difference between a boat and land on the radar? If you cannot answer yes to all of the questions above, that you should consider one of the H2O Limos courses listed above.
