Safe boating means knowing the rules and laws to keep us safe.

Remember, boating safety is a responsibility we all share as waterway users.

Depending on where you are, what kind of vessel you have, there are many rules and regulations that may apply to your vessel.

Just like on our roads a shared set of rules keeps everyone safe.

Learn which rules apply to your vessel and follow them.

Visit your local state or territory maritime authority and the AMSA website for more information on the rules that apply to you.
