Boating Safety

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Thank you for your interest in classroom instruction for Maryland’s Safe Boating Course. Please continue to check these listings during the year as many of our instructors are still very cautious and concerned about COVID-19 so, these classroom courses may be very limited until instructors feel that in-person instruction is safe to implement.​​
