Junior Captains Course

On-the-Water Boating and Safety Training for Kids

This is a 90-minute on-water class that provides practical hands-on boating instruction for kids 11-15 years old. Students learn by doing aboard a 16-ft RIB powerboat under the watchful eye and careful instruction of a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain from the Annapolis School of Seamanship.

On-water instruction covers:

  • Powerboat safety
  • Boat handling
  • Docking
  • Knots
  • Basic navigation
  • Weather awareness

“We are excited to offer this program at the Bay Bridge Boat Show for the first time, because we are all aware that getting kids engaged in boating makes them boaters for life,” said Captain John Martino, president and founder of the Annapolis School of Seamanship.

The Bay Bridge Boat Show is April 17-19 at the Bay Bridge Marina.

The Junior Captains Courses are 90-minutes long and will be held on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. 

Cost is $25 per student.
