Don’t Leave Home Without It – Coastal Navigation

Many people come to B.C. for the beauty.  But did you know that the inside passage of British Columbia is one of the most complex areas in the world – making this one of the best places in the world to learn to become a skilled skipper.  Coastal Navigation is essential for keeping your crew and vessel safe and will make charter companies and insurance underwriters happy when you are charting or seeking to buy a boat. 

Learn Coastal Navigation in one of our 3 Signature Formats:

Online:  Learn at your own pace and includes as much time as you need with an instructor to answer any questions as you proceed through each lesson.  This is our most popular course as it allows you to work thoroughly through each topic so that you can build a strong foundation. 

October 18 – Classroom:  Join us on Granville Island for a special series of in-class experiences.  This is an enhanced ‘flipped-classroom’ format that includes videos, in-person chartwork instruction, and a lively classroom experience you won’t want to miss. Prefer Sidney? Contact Tracy below.

On-board Your Next Charter: Go at your own pace in the comfort of your home. Complete your theory materials before your charter and enjoy a full-day of training aboard your charter boat on the first day.  This is the perfect format for people without tidal water experience, who want to gain a refresher on the water, or who want to make sure that their coastal navigation skills are polished for future bareboat charters abroad.
