Happy 4th of July Weekend and Stay Safe!

The California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) works with cities and counties throughout the state to promote safe and clean boating access. During the COVID-19 pandemic, DBW advises boaters and boating facilities to follow public health guidelines consistent with the Governor’s Stay-at-Home Orders and local county public health departments. DBW has identified a set of COVID-19 boating safety best practices for the boating community and boating facilities based on state and national guidelines to stay safe during this Fourth of July holiday and throughout the summer.

▪ In the safety practices for boaters guidelines you will find information about physical distancing and boating, safe boating practices to keep in mind before heading to the water and while boating, how to properly inspect and clean your life jacket, and some clean and green boating tips.
▪ The boating facility safety guidelines include information about safe practices around the facilities including docks and boat launch ramps, fuel docks, sewage and dump stations, parking, restrooms and showers, and laundry facilities, as well as recommendations for multi-use equipment and life jackets and how to communicate with your boaters.
