Ham License Advice

I have no experience with Ham and am considering taking a course to get my basic license. Because my application will be 95% in the marine environment, I'm wondering if anyone who has gotten their license can tell me if it makes a difference where I take the course from? For example, is it preferred that I take it from a sailing club, or is a ham club just as efficient, or is an online course just as good. As I have found out, the course cost varies dramatically from venue to venue and I'm curious about the difference the venue actually makes.

Thanks in advance.
