Handbook of Nevada Boating Laws
Unsure about certain boating laws? The Nevada Handbook of Boating Laws is your one-stop shop for all things boating in Nevada.
Boating Under the Influence
Drinking and boating is never a good idea. It puts you and everyone else on the water at risk and it’s against the law. Alcohol negatively affects your judgment, vision, balance, and coordination; everything you need to safely operate a boat.
Paddle Sports Safety
Paddle sports are a great way to get out and enjoy the water, but these vessels can carry their own set of challenges. Whether it’s a kayak, paddleboard or canoe, know before you go!
Wear a Life Jacket
Your life jacket is the most important thing you take on any boating trip, but they are only effective when they are worn. Remember: they float, you don’t.
Riding a personal watercraft (PWC) is a fun way to enjoy time on the water, but it’s important to stay prepared.
Ask a Game Warden
Do you have a specific boating question, but you can’t find the answer? Ask one of our game wardens before heading out.
