Boating safely: equipment & operation

This page provides helpful links to prepare your boat to get out on the water including packing the right safety equipment, operating safely while on the water and sharing the water with other aquatic activities and wildlife.

Check boat and marine safety requirements here. Remember what you need depends on where and when you are boating.

Challenge: can you find your boating safety gear in 30secs?

Grab your flares, make a radio call, put on a lifejacket in 30 seconds. See how it's done. Safety gear is only helpful if accessible in an emergency.
