Outdoor Adventure


We offer a variety of boat-based training options from a fully-certified training course from Rescue 3 International, to customized sessions designed to meet your specific needs. Regardless of the boat or the water, our approach will give you the confidence and skills needed to operate your boat in a safe manner. Training can be geared to external propellor, jetboat engines, or any non-motorized watercraft.

A Note on Transport Canada Certifications

Our courses do not replace or include Transport Canada certifications (PCOC or SVOP) required to operate boats for work. You obviously need the relevant Transport Canada certification in order to be compliant, but given that these courses are entirely theoretical (ie. you never get in a boat), we believe you should also have one of our practical, hands-on courses in order to actually learn how to operate a real boat on real water. Confused as to which certification you need? Chances are it's only a PCOC. Click here to find out which Transport Canada certification you need.

We don't teach public, open-enrollment boat operator courses, so contact us for more information on how to set up a course for your group. Please note: clients must provide their own watercraft for boat operator courses.
