Take a Safe Boating Course

Safety is our number one priority. We want our operators and crew to be responsible for their actions and respectful of fellow boaters, anglers, kayakers, rowers, marinas, etc. Earning the Pennsylvania Boating Safety Education certification is a good way to learn the rules of the river and the basics of boating. We RECOMMEND that everyone take this course and become certified boaters! We REQUIRE that anyone interested in operating (driving) the boat who was born after January 1, 1982, be certified and have the card with them on the day of their rental. That is the law.
