5 Key Steps to Safer Boating

safe key 1

Wear Your Lifejacket

Legally you must carry one on board, appropriately sized for each passenger. But don't just carry it, WEAR IT.


safe key 2

Don't Drink and Boat

Boating under the influence is not just illegal; it's irresponsible. Wait until you get back to the pier to have that beer.


safe key 3

Take a Boating Course

The law now requires that anyone driving a motorized boat must have a pleasure-craft operator card. It's for your own safety and that of your passengers. Don't get caught without one. Take a course and get your license!


safe key 4

Be Prepared

Ensure your boat has all the required safety gear and sufficient fuel. Be sure the weather is suitable for your vessel's capabilities.
