What People Say About Us?

Awesome Experience!

We did a 4 hour boat training class with Captain Paul. He was great. He arrived on time. He was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. We learn a lot of important skills that have really helped us in our boating.

Easy to Understand!

To be perfectly honest with you, I was dreading this day. I was extremely nervous and thought I would not pass the exam. I must share that the captain that was giving the class was absolutely wonderful. He made everything easy to understand and answered all my questions I highly recommend taking this class and course. I learned so so much and I passed my test

Informative and Interactive

Captain Paul and Captain Bill came to our home and provided the most informative and interactive boater safety course. These two gentlemen are highly qualified and excellent instructors. This company is the ONLY place you should use to educate your family and friends for safe water experiences!

Great for First Timer!

As a first time boater, this was worth every penny for the 2 four hour sessions spent on the water being shown how to safely maneuver around the marina, docking, navigating the bay and more. Thanks Capt Paul Whitman Jr.!!

It was well worth it!

Went out with Capt paul. On a very sporty day. It was well worth it. He is very knowledgeable and showed me lots of new tricks. It was windy that day to say the least. But it was good because I learned how to control the boat in those kind of conditions and will make the perfect boat days we all want a breeze. Also we went out in the bay in the chop. That taught me how to handle the boat and feel comfortable in unfavorable conditions. Was over all a really great time out on the water. Overall I would recommend this training it is worth the investment.

Responsive, Accommodating, and Engaging Instruction

This company responded quickly and was very easy to communicate with. We did a private course in our home. Captain Bill was wonderful. We had a rowdy bunch and a wide range of ages. Captain Bill was able to keep us focused and on track while creating space for the various learning styles. Captain Bill showed up on time and brought all of his own supplies. He was extremely accommodating. Our group would have never been able to sit in a public classroom together, we are so grateful Whitman Boating Company offers private courses in the comfort of your own home. Thank you for being part of an amazing memory for our family!

Absolutely would go again

This boat was awesome! Recommend for a fun 2-4 hour trip along the river in the summer especially! The captain and crew were so nice and accommodating. They really know they’re history of the philly area and showed us things we never would have known without them. Absolutely would go again.
