I've learned so much in their classes. A must have for anyone who owns a boat or is thinking of buying one. Take one of their classes.  Their instructors are the best!  Prices can't be beat!  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 educational classes, organized cruises and the wonderful people we met!! Being part of America's Boating Club opened up an entire new world for us!

Great educational program - 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!
