Boating Laws

New Law for 2018

On September 18, 2014, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed into law Senate Bill 941, which prohibits the operation of motorized vessels in California without a valid boater card developed and issued by DBW. The new mandatory boating safety education law went into effect January 1, 2018. The law will be phased in by age. The first group required to take the exam are boaters 20 years of age and younger. Each year after January 2018, a new age group will be added to those who are required to possess a valid card. By 2025, all persons who operate a motorized vessel on California waters will be required to have one. The cost of the lifetime card is $10, and all the money goes toward developing and operating the program.

Noteworthy to Remember Before Heading onto the Water

AB 2538: All children under 13 years of age are required to wear a life jacket while underway in recreational vessels of any size. The law also requires water skiers to wear life jackets, as well as all users of personal watercraft. Of course, it is recommended that persons of all ages wear a life jacket while underway in a vessel of any size.

County Ordinance 12.24.090 (Speed Zones) governs Speed Zones on Shasta Lake, Fall River, Lake Britton, Lake McCloud, little Tule River, and Eastman Lake. Be informed before you go boating.

Also see Shasta County Code, Chapter 12.24 - Boating, Swimming, and Fishing for more information.
