This guide is an overview of Arizona’s boating laws. It is not a substitute for the vast amount of information provided in a formal Boating Education Class. Remember, taking a Boating Education Class can heighten your enjoyment of safe boating in Arizona and may save you money on boat insurance. These classes also may save a life—maybe yours or that of a family member. Classes are available through the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, or the U.S. Power Squadrons. For more information, visit our website——or call us at 623-236-7219.
