Public Service Announcements from the Harbor Patrol

Washington DC Harbor Patrol wants you to have a safe and fun boating season.

Please remember: a life jacket can save your life... so wear it!  Always make a float plan and let someone know where and when you are going and returning. Boat sober. Boating Under the Influence (BUI) is dangerous and illegal. BUI is a leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents.

Please use common sense, obey the law and enjoy our waterways responsibly. Watch these Public Service Announcements from the Harbor Patrol for more information on safe boating in the District of Columbia.
