Enforcement of boating laws and regulations is the responsibility of the Waterways Conservation Officers of the PFBC. Some of the waters of the state are patrolled also by other agencies such as the DCNR, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USCG, and the National Park Service.

  • Boaters approached by a patrol boat with its blue light flashing must reduce their speed to “slow, no wake speed” and yield the right-of-way to the patrol boat.
  • The operator must stop when requested to do so by a law enforcement officer.
