The Boater's Guide of Arizona: A Handbook of Boating Laws and Responsibilities is the official boating handbook developed for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The handbook introduces you to Arizona laws governing boating and provides general information about safe vessel operation.
Though Arizona calls the desert Southwest home, this state is overflowing with lakes and rivers. The waters of lakes such as Lake Havasu are warm, crystal clear, and ideal for days full of boating, exploring hidden coves, and enjoying the abundant sunshine; when you’re ready to leave the water, hop on over to The London Bridge, shipped 5,400 miles from England and reconstructed in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
Use this handbook to familiarize yourself with steps to make all your boating outings safe and enjoyable. Remember, safety on Arizona waterways is the responsibility of all boaters.
You may have heard that you need a boating license to operate your boat, but what you really need is a boaters safety course. Whether or not your state requires education, it can reduce boating accidents and injuries on the water. Boaters can keep themselves and their passengers safe by learning about responsible boat operation, etiquette, and the rules of the waterways.
Many boaters also take the Arizona-approved boat education course to save money on their boat or PWC insurance or to go boating in other states that require boat education.
