Do you need a New Brunswick boating licence?

Boating in New Brunswick is no ordinary experience. If you're into the ultimate in sport fishing, launch the boat onto the Bay of Fundy and drop your line. You're likely to hook a delectable mackerel, and who knows for that matter, maybe a shark!

If your favorite powerboating adventure is waterskiing or jet-skiing you can practice your watersport of choice on the numerous waterways that New Brunswick has to offer. You can count on the St. John and the Miramichi Rivers, Baker Lake, Oromocto Lake and Chaleur Bay to enjoy your favorit pastime. You can even boat on the great Atlantic Ocean for deep sea fishing. They all touch land on the shores of New Brunswick.

You must remember though, that you need proof of competency while boating with motorised craft in New Brunswick, whether it be any size vessel or motor. This goes for all ages. So if you are operating a boat for fishing, waterskiing, jet-skiing, a houseboat or any other motorised craft, you need your Pleasure Crasft Operator Card.

It's the law, in New Brunswick and in the rest of Canada!
