What is the America’s Boating Club?

Organized in 1914, America’s Boating Club is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to promoting boating safety through education, civic service, and fun. Our members are boating families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education. We enjoy participating with our fellow members on the water and in the classroom.

America’s Boating Club has nearly 30,000 members in more than 350 squadrons across the country and in some US territories. America’s Boating Club is America's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions.
