About Us


Captain Jack has dedicated himself and his school to encouraging boating knowledge and safety. While teaching a marine mechanics course at the local vocational school, Captain Jack realized that he wanted to expand his own knowledge of boating and share that knowledge with other boaters that had the bug or that desire and yearning for the water that he holds so close. So here we are, Captain Jack now runs the best boating school in New Jersey, offering New Jersey and New York Boating Safety Certificate courses, the USCG OUPV Captains and Masters License courses. Captain Jack is a Certified Marine Mechanic and Instructor, is Certified as an Instructor by the United States Coast Guard for the OUPV (Six Pack) Captain's License and Master's Upgrade and holds an OUPV license with a Master's and Towing Endorsement.
