Unique Reasons to Train With Land's End Marine Training
in Granville Island or on the Sunshine Coast, BC Canada

Not just any school can be a Transport Canada Marine Safety Course Provider. Instructors must have a Transport Canada Commercial Masters Certificate, an Adult Education Diploma, comply with Transport Canada Quality Management and use certified texts and approved exams. The process takes up to two years to finally qualify and courses are audited by Transport Canada Master Mariners.

c-tow-imageWe currently have 3 Commercial Training Courses available, as well as Practical Marine Training using our C-Tow Commercial Vessel.  Please click on the links above for course information or Contact Us for information on the Practical Marine Training.

The SVOP has no seatime requirements, unlike higher Master (Captain's) licences.  The classroom is a great learning base but there is nothing like actual practical seatime to bring it all together.  This training is most cost effective in groups of 4 using our C-Tow Vessel.  This is not a part of the SVOP curriculum but extra practical training for those that want a more in-depth grasp of the concepts and practices. 

The following topics are all covered in a 3 day practicum, 4 hours per day.

•  Passage Planning
•  Radar
•  Docking
•  MOB Drills
•  Radio
•  Steering, Courses, & Waypoints

Our Services at Land's End Marine also include Towing, Fuel Delivery, Jump Starts, Deliveries, and Salvage.
Our Salvage Services include Ungrounding, Dewatering Pumps, Scuba Gear, and Lift Bags.
We are a C-Tow Franchise Operator.

"He who, putting his trust in the friendship of the sea, neglects the strength and cunning of his right hand, is a fool."
