Boat & Water Safety
You need education if you are 12 to 17 years old, are unsupervised, and will be operating a boat over 25 hp in Minnesota. The Minnesota Boating Guide summarizes Minnesota’s boating laws and regulations in an easy-to-read form. It supplies the information that most boaters need to know about operating watercraft on the state’s lakes and rivers. Look at the boating and water recreation regulations pages for other laws.
