Night Operations Endorsement

After basic powerboat certification, the next step in seamanship training is to learn to responsibly operate a powerboat at night (in sight of land). This “on-the-water” course will train you how to safely navigate a cruising powerboat at night.

Night Operations Course includes instructor reviews, self study and one “on the water” session at night. Practical skills learned includes night navigation planning, night systems and procedures, night vision, aids to navigation, leave and enter harbor and return to slip/dock at night. PREREQUISITE: Basic Powerboat Course.

The Night Operations Endorsement is a 3-hour on the water lesson. 

The Night Ops certification can be added to the “open water” lesson 4 on the Basic Powerboat Course, or the Advanced Lessons.
