Boating Safety
The Office of Boating Safety and Education helps develop individual awareness, skills, commitment to safe responsible behavior, and constructive actions in safe boating. The goal for students is to be aware of state laws regarding safety violations and how to prevent them from happening while still enjoying Delaware’s waterways.
Boat Registration
Delaware law requires the registration of all motorboats, including those powered by electric motors, if Delaware is its state of principal use. All motorboats launched from tidal access areas administered by the Division of Fish & Wildlife must be registered in Delaware or have a valid Tidal Access Boat Ramp Certificate.
