Earn your Pennsylvania Boater’s Safety Certificate!

At Peters Marine, we believe in promoting safe boating to benefit all of us who use the water.  Throughout the year, our local US Power Squadrons chapter teaches the safe boating course, America’s Boating Course.  After successfully passing the course, students will be able to legally pilot a boat and a jet ski in all states.  The class takes about eight hours and is usually split between two days/evenings.

All classes are taught by certified instructors.  The fee for the course is $50 to cover books/materials.  Couples are offered a discount if they share materials.
