Delaware Boating Law Enforcement

Enforcement of Delaware boating laws and regulations is the responsibility of the Delaware Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police officers. Some of the waters of the state also are patrolled by other authorities such as police officers and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Boaters approached by a patrol vessel with its blue light flashing should reduce speed, yield the right-of-way to the patrol vessel, or stop their vessel if necessary. The operator must stop when requested to do so by a law enforcement officer.
