Boating Mandatory Education

State law requires most operators of motorboats with a 15 horsepower or greater motor to get a boater education card. Boat operators who were born before Jan. 1, 1955, are exempt. Boat operators of other ages are being phased in. To see when you are required to carry a boater education card, visit the Washington State Parks and Recreation Web site at

Classroom courses in boating safety are offered several times each year by the Grant County Sheriff's Office. Classes offer students the chance to interact with an instructor who is an experienced boater as well as learn specific local boating information and network with other boaters.
