You may know that if you own a boat in Ontario, you MUST take a boat safety training class, and receive certification to operate your motor boat. Our guests are NOT required to take this class, but we are obligated to spend time with you helping you learn safe boating practices, and none are more important than wearing the life vests.Look at the seat just left of the boat operator. Yup – those are life jackets. And they cannot save your life if you don’t wear them. We ask guests to always wear them when the motor is running.
Licenses Please!…These are the planes of the MNR- Ministry of Natural Resources. The officers aboard check your Ontario Outdoor Card, your fishing license, boat safety document, and they check to see if you have alcoholic beverages in your boat. They are most interested in keeping you safe the number of fish on your stringer. They are professionals and they are serious about their job. When you abide by the regulations the visit, although it can be a big surprise, is quite enjoyable.
