The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary “Flotilla 52” and The Loxahatchee River Center in Jupiter get together a few times a year to provide boating safety courses. The classes are aimed for young boaters, but all are welcomed to attend who wish to learn more about boating and water safety.
The classes are provided by the AustinBlu Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and promote educational programs and water safety.
The class is free, however there is a $10-dollar deposit required to hold and reserve a spot. The deposit will be returned in full at the end of the class.
The next class is Saturday, April 20th at The Loxahatchee River Center in Jupiter. The State of Florida requires that anyone who wishes to operate a vessel of 10 horsepower or more and is born after January 1, 1988, must complete and pass a boater safety course.
The class is taught in a lecture style learning and at the end of the class, attendees are required to pass a test to receive their Boater Safety Card issued by the State of Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conversation Commission.
The class starts at 8 am and goes until 4 pm. For more information, visit their website. The Loxahatchee River Center is located at 805 N. US Highway 1 in Jupiter.
