How does an instructional cruise work? Quite simple! InformedBoater Academy has taken responsibility for securing a boat and preparing the learning environment for your cruise experience. We work with you to plan the week, including:

  • Meal planning and provisions
  • Cruise planning and navigation plans
  • Assistance with travel plans 
    (Air Fare shore side accommodations and transfers not included in fees)
  • Pre-cruise learning materials (like this) including notes and online learning material
  • Pre-cruise planning and information meetings
  • Sail Canada certification for those successful in meeting the national standards
  • Instruction by Sail Canada certified and insured Instructors

If you have questions email Rob MacLeod.
