Based in the scenic cruising grounds of the Gulf Islands, this comprehensive course covers boat handling and safe seamanship practices, as well as introducing the basics of coastal navigation. After departing our base at Port Sidney you'll live aboard our Meridian 411 cruising & learning through some of the most spectacular waters in the world. You'll spend each night either at anchor under the stars or secured at a cozy marina.
