Do I need a boater education card to operate a watercraft in Alaska?

You are not required to have a boating safety education certificate to operate a watercraft
in Alaska, however we highly recommend that you take our online course because:
- Having the card means that you passed a recognized boating safety course, which
is proof that you know how to operate safely on the water. Keep in mind that the
waters of Alaska are very cold and you should take all possible precautions to
avoid falling in
- The boating safety certificate is recognized in many states. Having it will allow
you to enjoy boating in other states
- You will save on boat insurance
- The boating education certificate will make you a safer and more confident

Which boats need to be registered in Alaska?

Many boats require registration to be used in Alaska. “Boat” refers to any watercraft used
capable of being used as a means of transportation on water.
All motorboats (including vessels with auxiliary motors) must be registered to be used on
waters of the State (rivers, streams, lakes and salt water within three miles of the shore).

Who needs to wear a life jacket in Alaska?

All watercraft (including manually powered vessels such as kayaks and inflatable rafts)
must carry at least one US Coast Guard-approved wearable life jacket for each person on
board. Boats greater than 16 feet in length must also carry a US Coast Guard-approved
throwable flotation device.

Can I drink alcohol while boating?

It is illegal for a boat operator to be under the influence of alcohol or any other
intoxicating substance. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher you are
considered to be “operating under the influence” and may be subject to fines and/or
imprisonment depending on the severity of the offense and any previous convictions.

What are the age restrictions to operate a powerboat in Alaska?

There is no minimum age for boating in the state. However, Alaska boating regulations
require that the operator be at least 12 years old for activities such as waterskiing.
Operators younger than 12 must be accompanied at all times by someone at least 18 years
