Steering you to knowledge, skill, and confidence.


Capable Cruising is all about turning you into a skilled and competent boater.  Our training is curriculum based, customized for your needs from beginner to experienced.  For those new to boating, we start with the boating basics and build from there. For the more experienced, we will familiarize you with boating situations that you might encounter outside your comfort zone. We specialize in the Great Loop and the knowledge and skill set necessary for this amazing adventure.   You don’t have to be an expert boater to consider the Great Loop.  We can teach you the ins and outs of everyday life onboard, how to care for your boat, how to navigate, lock and dock etc. In short, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about living this fun, exciting lifestyle.
