By Bob NewbertFour years ago, I developed Day on the Water, a two-part program designed to introduce area youth to boating and the beauty of low country waterways.

On-the-water training provides hands-on skill development for new boaters and a practical extension of our classroom instruction. Our Boat Operator Certification program provides credentials certifying the boating skills and educational achievements of members.
