Salish’s on-the-water training program has been highly successful here in Jefferson County, and long-term we want to make what we do available to other communities around the sound.  We’ve already had interest from people on Bainbridge Island, Guemes Island, and San Juan Island, wanting to know how they can set up similar programs to serve their local communities.

With over 10 years of providing on-the-water training under our belts, we have detailed “Task Books” for skills training, and real-world, hands-on instruction experience teaching youth and adults to safely operate rescue vessels in all sea conditions.

We regularly give talks for yacht clubs, community groups and service organizations, and do man overboard and search-pattern demonstrations at public events.
