I’ve learned so much in their classes.  A must have for anyone who owns a boat or is thinking of buying one.  Their instructors are the best!  I checked out other options, no one comes close.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoy exploring the beautiful coastline of Oceanside in our Catalina 315.  We would not have been doing any of this had it not been for America’s Boating Club – Oceanside educaitonal classes, organized cruises and the wonderful people we met!!  Being part of America’s Boating Club, Oceanside opened up an entire new world for us.

Great educational programs – they also know how to have a good time.  Sundowners on Oceanside Bay, cruises to Catalina and Mission Bay.  Knowledgeable speakers at the potlucks.  Great fun!
