Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum offers youth boater safety course

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering another Maryland DNR-approved boater safety course, with a three-session course scheduled for Nov. 15–17 that is aimed at young adult boaters ages 10 and up. 

All sessions will be virtual, held via Zoom from 5–8pm, and led by qualified CBMM staff members. The cost to attend is $25 per person, with space limited and registration required. A 20% discount is available for CBMM members.   

Boater’s Safety Courses teach participants the basics needed to safely and confidently operate a vessel on Maryland waterways. Maryland boaters born after July 1, 1972, are required to have a Certificate of Boating Safety Education. Participants must attend all sessions and pass the Department of Natural Resources exam to earn a certificate that is good for life. 

Early registration is recommended as classes typically fill fast. To register, go to For information on Maryland DNR’s boating safety program, visit
