Boats on choppy water. Do you have your pleasure craft operator card?

Pleasure Craft Operator Card Prices

Please Craft Operator Card Prices

Did you just buy a boat? Are going to a cottage for a weekend of fun? Just get tired of always being the passenger, and never the pilot? There are all kinds of reasons why you might want to get your Pleasure Craft Operator Card, and thankfully, there is no shortage in online websites willing to help you get licensed (for a fee). But which one should you choose?

We’ve prepared a list of all Ontario, English, online, Transport Canada accredited pleasure craft course providers, so that you can easily compare the prices (updated July 2nd, 2015). Most of these sites provide copious studying material, but remember that the test is open book. Please remember that in many cases, especially if you are new to boating, there is no substitute for a proper, comprehensive boating course.

And, if these prices seem a little high, why don’t you save some money on your boat by speaking to Lance, our boat insurance specialist. Lance knows every trick in the book to get you the most value out of your marine insurance policy!

Right now, by far the best price we can find online is Better Boating, with an unbeatable price of just $19.99, WAY below the industry standard $49.95. However, we haven’t gone through the actually test itself so make sure you compare a few options yourself and decide what is best for you!
