Boat creating a wake

Arizona law designates the following dangerous operating practices as illegal.

Speed Restrictions require the operator to maintain a proper speed while operating a vessel. Specifically, it is illegal to:

  • Operate a vessel at speeds greater than are reasonable or proper given the existing waterway traffic, persons in the water, and weather conditions.
  • Exceed any posted speed limits.
  • Operate a vessel at greater than “wakeless speed” in a posted no wake zone.
  • Operate a vessel at speeds that may cause injury or damage to any other person, another vessel, or the property of others. This includes causing damage or danger from the wake of your vessel.
