New York State Boating Safety Course

Taught by Volunteers Every Late July

The New York State Safe Boating Course is taught each Summer by volunteers from the Schroon Lake and Paradox Lake Associations. This eight hour course is free of charge. Taking the course and passing the test entitles young boaters between the ages of 10 and 16 to operate a motorboat without the supervision of an adult. It is also the course that is required for all operators of personal watercraft (PWCs).
