NYS Safe Boating Course
The Whaling Museum is hosting Safe Boating Courses for all students age 10 and older. Learn the essentials of safe boat operation, regulations, and responsibilities of boat ownership to receive your boating certificate.
This course meets the New York State education requirement for the Personal Water Craft Operation Permit, Youth and Adult Boating Certificate.
Students will receive a temporary safe boating card, good for 90 days.
To receive a permanent safe boating card, students must register their score with NYS (Details will be provided on how to do this during the course). NYS charges a fee of $10 for this card. Students 18 and younger are not charged a fee.
Ages 10 and older may register to attend.
The Safe Boating Course is an IN PERSON event at the museum. Since this is a workshop event, masks will be required while inside the workshop. Breaks will be given where registrants can roam the galleries and choose to take a mask break.
