|The Sacramento - San Joaquin River Delta
offers boaters over 700 miles of navigable waterways. This alluring area provides the best of many forms of water recreation; skiing, sailing, or
just plain cruising. However, due to its popularity, the Delta represents one of the State's highest accident areas. Weather, hazards, wakes,
ferries and tide offer varied boating safety problems.
We believe that every person who takes control of a boat, regardless of the size of the vessel, has a personal responsibility to become educated and trained in the proper operation of that boat. Boating is a fun, exciting recreational activity. Letís work together to ensure that you, your family and those sharing the water with you have an enjoyable experience.
Operating Rules: You are legally responsible for the safety of those on your boat, any damage your boat causes to other boats and property, and all others injured by any damage you cause. Just like driving a car, if you don't know and obey the rules, the fact that you didn't know them is not a valid defense. Boat operators are expected to make sure that their boats carry at least a minimum of safety equipment and comply with federal and state regulations.
