Boat Licence


Boat Licence $150


for 2 or more attendees - $140 per person

(price consists of $15 for the ONLINE THEORY component; & balance for ON-SITE Practical & Assessments)


Our Boat Licence course consists of online theory and practical – all designed for the beginner.

The practical sessions are conducted on training vessels "Whopper Stopper" and "Whopper Stopper Too" (both 6 metre Makocraft powered by 140HP Suzuki 4 Stroke outboard motors).

Wear what you would normally wear boating (in cooler months a hoodie is advisable).



Spend a few hours completing the theory component online at home, in your own time, at your own pace (see our link online learning) (this replaces time spent in the classroom).  You will need to REGISTER, create a PASSWORD, select "BOAT ONLY" from our COURSE SELECTION page, watch the videos and complete the theory questions.   (Our ONLINE LEARNING course works best using GOOGLE "CHROME" as your Web Browser".)

Please remember to write down your UserName and Password and keep it as reference for each time you Log-In.

(Total price consists of two payments - $15 for ONLINE LEARNING and balance is for on-site practical and assessments - separate payment using the "BOOK NOW' button.)
