Virtual On-the-Water Training

Our Boating Skills Virtual Trainer allows participants to boost their boating skills and confidence in a safe environment. Using the virtual trainer, students maneuver a Boston Whaler on a 3.5-by-4-mile lake. The best part is there are no other boats, no water and no risks.

Instructors can increase the difficulty of exercises by adjusting the strength and direction of wind and current, allowing students to practice maneuvers in varying conditions. Exercises include leaving the dock, pivot turns, mooring, docking, emergency stop, crew overboard, trailering, navigating the boat ramp and more. Our Boating Skills Virtual Trainer makes learning to boat a year-round activity.
