MarineMax’s exclusive Women on Water (WOW) courses are designed to get women
behind the helm and enjoying the boating lifestyle. The classes are offered at many of our locations
throughout the country, and are taught by U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains who
have been certified by MarineMax to conduct the lessons.
These small group seminars, for women only, are designed to build confidence by
presenting information in an active, fun, and supportive environment. Each four to five-hour class is
split in two parts: a classroom session and a practical, on-water session. The laid back approach we
take to educating female boaters helps to build confidence that they can be the captain of their own ship -
no matter how large or small their boat may be. Women on Water classes cover a variety of important and
practical areas of the boating experience, including:
• Boat terminology and anatomy
• Line handling
• Knot tying
• Boat operation and handling
• Rules of the water
• Hands-on experience on the water
• Much more!
Whether you are new to boating or have been on the water for a while and are now ready to
take the helm, MarineMax Women on Water classes can help you gain confidence on the
water and even make some friends in the process.
