Safety Courses

One of the best ways to become a better boater is by enrolling in a Boating Safety Course. There are courses available for all skill levels. Many are available online through BoatUS. Additionally two organizations offer Boating Safety Courses on Lake Lanier – The US Coast Guard Auxiliary as well as America’s Boating Club.

In-Person and Online Boating Safety Courses

Be sure to check with your insurance company to see if you qualify for a discount after completing a boating safety course. Many insurance companies do offer that discount!
