Pleasure Craft Operator Card

Posted on February 13, 2016 | Updated on April 9, 2024

As of September 15, 2009 all boaters are required to have the Pleasure Craft Operator Card in order to operate a powered watercraft. There is no grandfather clause or age exemption – this law applies to all boaters. Powered watercraft includes watercraft fitted with any size motor — even an electric trolling motor. Not having the required Pleasure Craft Operator Card or proof of competency on board carries a fine of $250 (not including administrative charges).
