NYS Boater SafetyJune 12, 2017 - June 14, 2017

New York State is blessed with hundreds of miles of navigable waterways, varied enough to suit every taste and every imaginable waterborne activity. Whether you’re enjoying the roaring surf of the Atlantic Ocean, the whitewater thrills of the Adirondacks, the pristine waters of the Finger Lakes or the historic New York State Canal, fun boating begins with safe boating.

The goals of the program are to:
Teach the basic boating skills necessary for safe and enjoyable boating.

Instill in each student a sense of responsibility when operating a boat.

Develop an understanding of the consequences of careless boating.

Encourage common sense and courtesy towards other waterway users.

The course can improve the skills of even the seasoned boater! Plus, taking the course sets a good example for kids. And, completing the boating safety course may lead to a reduction in your boater’s insurance premium. National Association of Boating Law Administers (NASBLA) approved
