- All motorized pleasure boat operators must carry a “Pleasure Craft Operator Card”. Visitors from the United States can use an equivalent State or US Coast Guard document as a substitute. A “Pleasure Craft Operator Card” is not required for craft such as sailboats, kayaks and canoes.
- Be considerate of your neighbours – avoid circling (PWCs, wake jumpers, and tubers) in one area.
- Use common sense and be aware of the damage caused by boat wakes.
- When waterskiing, wakeboarding & tubing, depart at a right angle to the shore and maintain a minimum 30 meter distance from the shoreline. By law, the tow-boat(including PWCs) must carry a spotter and have an empty seat for each person being towed (to pick them up in case of a fall).
- Carry a cell phone on your craft.
