Who Enforces Boating Laws?
Enforcement of Delaware boating laws and regulations is the responsibility of the Delaware Fish and Wildlife Natural Resources Police enforcement agents. Some of the waters of the state also are patrolled by other authorities such as police officers and the USCG.
- 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.
