Coastguard Safe Boating

Practical, boating and water safety experience for children

About Boat Safety

We offer a Safe Boating Programme with a focus on practical, boating and water safety experience for children – regardless of their confidence in the water.

The programme focuses on:

  • Recognition of potential dangers/hazards
  • In-water survival techniques
  • Essential safety equipment (e.g. correct lifejacket selection and fitting)
  • The importance of communications
  • Taking responsibility for personal safety
  • Hypothermia

Boating activities are taught in a fun, controlled, and safe environment.
