Safe Boating Information and Obtaining a Safe Boating Course Card

Save $50 when you obtain your Safe Boating Course Card

Wear It
Safety is your #1 priority for you and your crew out on the water, and getting a head start before your trip is easier than even. As an incentive, Forever Resorts continues to offer a $50 Safe Boating Discount* to houseboat captains who have completed a state approved, NASBLA certified, boating safety course.

Here's the deal:
Bring your state issued Safe Boating Course ID card to the marina when you check in and receive a $50 discount on your houseboat rental. There is only one $50 discount allowed per houseboat rental and the card holder must be the contract signer. (Captain!)

Not certified yet?
If you have not completed a safe boating course yet, it's not too late. You can either complete an in-person or on-line course from your state of residence (see links below), or you have the option to complete a classroom course from the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary or United States Power Squadron.

Forever Resorts continues to offer the $50 Safe Boating Discount to houseboat captains who have completed a state approved, NASBLA certified, boating safety course.

Don't forget your crew!
Many captains also find it handy to have their whole crew review a safety course before their voyage. These courses are a great way to get everyone to start thinking about the trip in advance and you will find that they make for safer boating as well. Many of the online courses are free to review, easy to read, include interesting illustrations and videos, and even offer practice tests free of charge. Some captains have been known to offer bounty for the top score in their crew! (most state courses offer the option to review the course materials for free.)
