8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The River Center, in partnership with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary and the AustinBlu Foundation, is hosting another exciting series of Boating Safely courses through the Spring and Summer of 2017.

Boating and water based activities are a popular past-time in Jupiter. Whether heading out on the open ocean for an epic fishing adventure or up the intracoastal for a leisurely cruise, South Floridians enjoy boating. 

While boating can be a fun and relaxing experience, operating a boat, especially for young people, can be dangerous. This issue was brought to light the summer of 2015 when Austin Stephanos and his good friend were lost at sea. 

In hopes of preventing similar tragedies the River Center is again collaborating with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary “Flotilla 52” to provide Boating Safely Classes targeted specifically to young boaters in our community.

These classes are provided through a generous sponsorship by the AustinBlu Foundation, a not-for-profit founded in Austin’s name and dedicated to raising awareness and promoting educational programs to improve boater safety. Participating in effective boater safety training is the most significant thing boaters can do to decrease their risk of mishap while on the water. Potential boaters need to understand the dangers of boating in hazardous waters like the Jupiter Inlet.

Although there is no cost for the class, a $10.00 deposit per student is required to reserve a seat. This deposit will be refunded in full to all students who complete the class. Please bring a lunch.

Pre-registration is required because space is limited. Registration will take place promptly at 8:00, the morning of class. Please register online now!

 Satisfactory completion of the course earns a “Florida Safe Boating Card"
