Here you will learn boating basics in order to get your boat safety certificate commonly referred to as a boat license. We have been providing boaters with a boating basics education and a New Jersey Boating certificate (license) to allow them to operate on the waters of the state of New Jersey safely and legally since 1997. All operators of power vessels on tidal waters in the state of NJ must have a boating safety certificate.

We serve Cape May County, Atlantic County, Cumberland County, and Gloucester County as well as the Philadelphia area.  Students come from South Jersey, North Jersey, Philadelphia and New York. Non NJ residents and can get a boating safety certificate as well as people visiting from other countries that need their certificate to work for the summer.

This is a boating safety certificate however it is commonly referred to as a license in general and on this site.

All tidal water boat licenses are regulated through New Jersey State Police (NJSP).  The license that you will receive is the same license that the U.S. Coast Guard USCG offers.
