St. Lucie River Power Squadron offers boating courses to help people develop and enhance safe boating skills.  Our courses begin with basic boating safety with the America’s Boating Course 3rd Edition (ABC3) that allows people to earn the Florida Boating Safety Education ID Card.  The ABC3 course covers both Federal and FL State boating regulations including required safety equipment, and is offered on a monthly basis.

These courses include: Boat Handling, Marine Navigation, Advanced Piloting, Celestial Navigation, and On-the-Water Training. We also offer short 2-hour seminars on a variety of boating topics, such as Weather Forecasting, Tides & Currents, and others.
