Boating Safety Volunteers

The Office of Boating Safety and Education promotes and supports the public’s effort to become better informed about boating safety. With the help of volunteers, the Office has successfully certified thousands of students. Each year the demand to educate the boating public grows; the Office constantly is searching for new boating volunteers.

Qualified volunteers must have a basic knowledge of boating and boating related activities. They must take a qualifying instructors course. Boating Safety Volunteers are asked to do such things as teach mandatory boating education classes, conduct marine dealer visits, conduct courtesy vessel inspections, set up display booths, and speak to various organizations and groups about boating safety.

If you are interested in becoming a Delaware Safe Boating Volunteer please view the Safe Boating Volunteer Policy Manual and complete the Boating Volunteer Application.

After completing the application, submit it to the Office of Boating Safety and Education, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
