You will have no doubt what the expectations are, and more lessons are available if you feel you are not ready.
No prior experience is required, although highly recommended.

Do the online course now at NO COST, only pay on the day of the practical.

Practicals for online students are completed on any day with prior arrangement.

Tin Can Bay Inlet and The Great Sandy Straits is the preferred boating area for Gympie and District residents, due to it's close proximity, huge untouched area, quiet waterways, and of course plentiful fishing and crabbing.

Why not discover Fraser Island by water. If you do the morning practical, there is a high likelihood you will come face to face with the famous Tin Can dolphins.
You will also navigate amongst port & starboard lateral marks, cardinal marks, lead lights and special marks during your practical. This interaction with navigation marks is vital in becoming comfortable and confident on the water.

The Tin Can Bay boat ramp is easy to use, with 4 wide lanes, and a functional pontoon in the middle to tie up to while parking your trailer (great for beginners). Parking is plentiful and close, there are no line-ups, and no crowds.

Your trainer, Peter, has 38 years of local experience as a Master Class 4 skipper on vehicle ferries, charter boats, trawlers, line fishing and spanner crabbing vessels. He will share these experiences with you, and patiently walk you through the course.
