wa-boater-education-cardThe San Juan Islands offer a vast play­ground for boaters, kayak­ers, divers and any­one wish­ing to be on or near the water. The San Juan Coun­ty Sher­iff and the Unit­ed States Coast Guard Aux­il­iary are work­ing togeth­er to make these activ­i­ties as safe as pos­si­ble for both adults and children.

On April 30 from 9 AM to 5 PM at both the Mullis Fire Sta­tion in Fri­day Har­bor and the Orcas Fer­ry Land­ing Con­fer­ence Room on Orcas Island, the San Juan Coun­ty Sher­iff and the US Coast Guard Aux­il­iary will be offer­ing a one day boat­ing safe­ty class.

This class will cov­er a wide array of top­ics from “rules of the road” and safe­ty gear to cold water survival.

Suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the class will qual­i­fy par­tic­i­pants for the Wash­ing­ton State required Boater Edu­ca­tion Card.
