One of the primary goals of Ocean City Power Squadron, a unit of the United States Power Squadrons® (USPS), is to promote “boating safety through education”. We believe that an educated boater is a safer boater.


Our instructors are certified and use modern instructional methods. We provide many educational opportunities for the general public and our members through a variety of courses, public seminars and marine-related guides.


All of the educational opportunities offered are available to both members and the public. The programs are designed to foster a high standard of skill in the operation and navigation of personal water craft, small power boats, yachts, sailing vessels, canoes and kayaks.
