Why wait until the last minute to get your boating license? New York State law requires that anyone born on or after May 1, 1996 must obtain a boating license. Additionally, all persons operating personal watercraft (Jet Skis) must have a boating certificate and be at least 14-years-old. So take this class just before the height of the summer; the license earned in this class is good for both boats and Jet Skis and will last for a lifetime. You must attend all three classes to obtain a certificate. For ages 10 and up.
Registration begins Tuesday, May 1, 2018.
