Boating Safety Education & Tips

The first of the season's Boating Safety classes has been completed, but you have 4 more chances.  Warm weather will be here before we know it and it'd be nice to complete all Federal & State requirements or even get a refresher before you put your boat in the water.  

Boating Safety Class in session 

Our 2-day "About Boating Safely" classes will be taught at our Base, 508 Taughannock Blvd, Ithaca on the following dates:

  • July 8 & 9
  • August 5 & 6

 You can sign up on-line under the "Boating courses" tab.  All classes start at 9:00 am and continue until about 1:00 pm each day.  The class meets the New York State Boating certificate requirements. We'll also be presenting an optional short paddlecraft safety segment with each class. Click here for a printable flyer.

Look for Vessel Safety Check (VSC) events at Treman State Marine Park and Myers/Lansing Town Park or email us at to request a VSC.  These are free and educational plus will result in a Vessel Safety Check Decal if your boat meets all requirements. Prepare for it by taking a "Virtual VE", found under the Vessel Safety Check tab on the left.  Be advised the Virtual VE software uses Adobe Flashplayer so it cannot be completed on most handheld devices.
