New to Boating?

I would like to put out there some information. For those of you who are thinking of entering the boating world or perhaps you may find some refresher information if you are a seasoned boater. Did you know as of last year you are required to have a Pleasure Craft Operating Card/ License. If you are the one planning on operating a powered boat.This is required for any vessel that has a motor of any size. That would include an electric trolling motor. There is a minimum fine of $250.00 for operating a motorized vessel without a Pleasure Craft Card.

Did you know there are courses offered on line and you can even write the exam on line. This will bring everyone on board with basic boating safety and edict. There is a guide available for sail boats as well. When you have acquired your card you are permitted to operate a vessel in Canada.

If you are thinking of renting a boat on your vacation this year. Be sure to acquire your Pleasure Craft Card ahead of time to avoid disappointments.You don't want to miss fishing for that big catch.

With your new card in hand you will be ready for all the adventures boating has to offer. Just think, warm sun relaxing on the deck. Perhaps you are planning on trying diving for the first time. Kayaking doesn't require a Pleasure Craft card however you may want to travel to some spectacular places by boat to find the best Kayaking locations. I live on Vancouver Island so I am hoping you will consider a boating experience in this area. It truly offers breathtaking views, fantastic fishing.and if you like the mouth watering crab is delightfully tasty. It doesn't get any fresher than when you catch it yourself.

Plan to obtain your Pleasure Craft Card there are plenty of options available if you don't own your own boat.Imagine how you and your family would enjoy your next vacation on ocean exploring the Gulf Islands by boat.

I am looking forward to my adventures this summer how about you? Lets keep everyone safe this summer. Get your Pleasure Craft Card. Please don't drink or do drugs while operating a motorized vessel. I am sure you and your family will enjoy all the boating lifestyle has to offer. Do consider the Gulf this summer. There is plenty of open space for learning. Perhaps we will see you out on the waters.

Keep an eye out for more articles on boating.
