BoatU.S. created a guide to the "Boatiest Colleges in America," which helps students find the top marine programs and extracurricular boating activities offered by four-year schools.

The one-of-a-kind guide premieres in the July 2009 issue of BoatU.S. Magazine, along with a list of "The 25 Boatiest Schools in America" - those that offer at least three different accredited marine-related programs, both academic and extracurricular.

Students can search the database by state or by program, such as fisheries, marine engineering, oceanography, marine biology, sailing or waterskiing.

"This is the information our adult members tell us they wish they had when they were headed off to college," BoatU.S. consulting editor Bernadette Bernon said in a statement. "Now their teens have an easy way to find out how to continue boating, sailing or fishing and get a relevant, in-demand college degree at the same time."
