America's Boating Course is an eight hour course covering the basics of boating and is appropriate for youth as well as the adult boater.  Successful completion of this course satisfies the education requirement for youth to operate a PWC in both Virginia and North Carolina.  Remember: Virginia now has a law that all boaters in the waters of Virginia will have to show proof of taking a Boating Course.   North Carolina Law  effective 1 Jan of 2014 requires that all PWC and Motor Boat Operators born  after 1 Jan 1988 will have proof of taking a Boating Course, if they are operating a vessel with with an 10 HP engine or greater. The fee for the course is $30.  Preregistration and prepayment are required.   Courses are taught at the USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 93 Building, located at 252 River Road, 1/4 mile west of Route 46.  Click here for directions.
