US Coast Guard Auxiliary Offers “Adventures in Boating” Class

The US Coast Guard Auxiliary will offer the Washington Basic Boater Education Course.  Everyone wishing to learn or share their safe boating skills as well as review our local boating regulations is invited to attend.  Upon successful completion of the course, attendees may submit a copy of their individual “Certificate of Accomplishment” with $10 to receive a Boater Education Card by the Washington State Parks & Recreation Commission. 

All Washington residents must carry a Boater Education Card while on the water operating a power-boat greater than 15 horsepower.  This includes people over 12 years of age and born after January 1, 1955.  If you plan on boating in areas outside of the State of Washington, you should find out what their requirements are for boater education certifications. By getting your card, you help to ensure that you and our waterways remain safe.  You may also be able to reduce your boating insurance costs.
