Safety Guidelines:

Practice physical distancing of at least 2 metres.

Wear a mask indoors or in busy outdoor spaces.

Remember to wear sunscreen and a hat.

Key steps to safer boating:*

  1. Wear Your Lifejacket. Legally you must carry a Canadian approved PFD on board, appropriately sized for each passenger. But don’t just carry it, WEAR IT.
  2. Don’t Boat Impaired. Boating under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs is not just illegal; it’s irresponsible. Wait for the end of the day when you are back on land and your boat is safely moored.
  3. Be Prepared. Ensure your boat has all the required safety gear. Be sure the weather is suitable for your and the vessel’s capabilities.
  4. If using a paddleboard, leashes are strongly recommended
  5. Beware of Cold Water Risks. Cold water is a significant risk. Learn how to protect yourself.
