Are you located in Fort Myers? Another boating safety course is being offered, this time in Fort Myers! America’s Boating Club Fort Myers is holding a NASBLA-approved course that will cover all general boating information, including boating safety, boating laws and regulations, navigation, and boat handling.

At the moment, Fort Myers Power Squadron is the only area squadron offering in-person safety classes during the pandemic. Appropriate safety precautions will be taken during the course. 

Registration begins on Sunday, March 7th from 2pm to 2:30pm at the squadron building, 314 Royalston Avenue in Fort Myers. The actual course will take place the following two weekends, on Sunday March 14th (from 2pm-6pm) and Sunday March 21st (from 2pm-6:30pm). Upon passing the final exam and graduation, the necessary paperwork will be issued for graduates to receive a Florida Boater ID card. The cost is $50 for a single person, or $60 for a couple. Complimentary refreshments will be served. 

The Fort Myers Power Squadron is the older America’s Boating Club Squadron in the area. They’ve been assisting the Fort Myers boating community for 65 years. To register, contact Lt/C Millie Bonilla at 612-616-6152 or email her at mbonilla_3@hotmail.com.
