Summer fun starts 
with boating safety

The freedom of riding a personal watercraft is enhanced when it’s done safely. Boating safety classes offered by Colorado Parks and Wildlife teach PWC riders the rules of the road.



Summer means fun on the water, but it’s only fun if it’s done safely.

State law says a motorboat operator must be at least 16 but youths 14 and 15 can take a one-day safety course and get approved to operate a motorboat, sailboat or personal watercraft.

Courses are provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The classes are fast, easy and worth the $15.

Bring your parents; they probably could use a refresher.

Then, hit the water.
