The safety of our volunteer NASBLA instructors and the students is our first priority during this COVID-19 Pandemic. At United States Power Squadrons we have created a new virtual learning program that is approved by NASBLA and the State of Florida to provide boating education virtually. We have adapted our normal ABC classroom course with a interactive virtual classroom where students can interact in a controlled manner and ask questions of the instructors.
United States Power Squadron is a non-profit community service based organization that promotes boating education and safety with hands-on training in the classroom and on the water. Please contact us if you’re interested in becoming a member or finding out about all the member benefits including our nationally recognized ON THE WATER TRAINING WEEKEND COURSE… FREE.
America’s Boating Club® of Pompano Beach is for all types of boaters – novice or experienced, in coastal or inland waterways. We bring boaters together to improve their skills, make connections, or just enjoy time together. Our boating courses and seminars are just the beginning – beyond the classroom a world of boating fun awaits!
A mediocre day on the water is better than a good day anywhere else. Boating with friends makes it even better! Join us for boating activities, social events, learning together, and all-around boating fun.
