Utah’s Boating Program aims to educate and inform boat operators about boating laws and rules established to provide public safety and protect our natural resources on Utah’s waterways. Our efforts are funded through boat registration fees, state taxes on gasoline used in motorboats, and federal boating safety grants. With an ever-increasing demand on Utah’s limited number of rivers, lakes, and reservoirs, boaters must use their water recreation resources wisely. Boaters have the responsibility to practice and advocate safe and ethical use of our waterways. This responsibility includes properly registering boats, learning and obeying boating safety laws and rules, and sharing waterways with other boaters, swimmers, and anglers.
