  • Participating both on-the-water and off with fellow members who are skilled in boating is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. On-the-water activities include cruises, rendezvous, sail races, navigation contests and even fishing derbies. Activities ashore include meetings with marine programs, parties, dinner-dances, picnics and field trips.

    - LT/C Robert Scott
  • We took a boating course when we moved to a the beach -we joined the United States Power Squadrons because of the amount of local knowledge, the number of members that enjoyed sharing that knowledge.
    There are other organizations but this one welcomed everyone -income, educational background, career-none of that was important -all that matters is the love of boating and working together to make a better boating experience for the community.".

  • When our 12 year old Son wanted to take our small boat out by himself I told him he needed to take the United States Power Squadron’s Safe Boating Class and I took it with him. At the end of the class, I was invited to join the local Power Squadron and we both did. My son passed the course and I am confident that he will be a safe Skipper.
