Boating school, serving the state of New Jersey since 1987 for private boat classes, boating certifications, hands-on training, and more.
Coast Boating School is the only full-time boating school in New Jersey. We maintain an office in Tom’s River all year and are here to answer all of your questions.
Our instructors are licensed United States Coast Guard Captains with many years of boating experience and are also trained and certified individually as instructors by the State, including background checks.
Our classroom course covers: safety, rules of the road, operating requirements, personal watercraft, New Jersey specific laws, and much more. All our classes are multi-day classes completed in two (2) sessions and include one (1) hour of homework between the sessions and the proctored exam. If you receive an 80% or better on your written exam, you will walk away with a usable temporary certificate. Taking a one-day course is a difficult way to learn the information and we do not recommend it. Our two-day course has a 98% pass rate.
We also do the proctored exam for the on-line boating safety course offered by Boat-Ed.com. The online course has an 86% pass rate and costs the same for course and proctored exam.
Private classes are offered for groups of 8 or more. For more information or to answer any questions on these types of class, please contact us at any time. Remember, a boating safety course will increase your knowledge and add to your confidence. We are here to make boating safer and therefore more fun!
