Boating Requirements
You must have a Washington State Boater Education ID card or equivalent in order to rent a pontoon, jet ski or motorboat. All boats come with appropriate safety equipment — life jackets, flotation cushion, oars or paddles, anchor, motor shut-off key and instructions on boating operations. You must return all equipment at the completion of your rental. To obtain a Washington State Boater Education ID card, visit boatus.org/washington, register and complete the exam. Upon completion, print out the certificate and bring it or your permanent boater card to the office when you rent a watercraft. All patrons renting a motorized boat or jet ski are required to purchase fuel consumed upon the return of the boat/jet ski.
