IMAGINE THE FREEDOM OF ZOOMING AROUND ON SOMETHING LIKE THIS!
our RUNABOUT/RIB* program is for small boats with outboard engines** and the goal is to have you comfortably operating one of these by the end of an entire weekend of instruction
there's no prior experience required for this program, but a sense of humour is essential as folks usually experience quite the 'grin factor'
the boats are great, the classoom is at the uber-cool granville island, the instructors are the best and the experience of taking these programs launches a whole new way to explore the world by water - there is no substitute for hands on training to get you there
** WARNINGS **
people have been known to have their hair (what's left of it in some cases) look quite unique after experiencing 45mph + out on English Bay - you might wear a hat, but we recommend you tie it on
if you can't handle the coaster at the fair, don't do this one - if you love adventure and your heart skips a beat at the sight of a fast car, don't miss this one
