National Safe Boating Week

Saturday, May 17, 2014 (All day) to Friday, May 23, 2014 (All day)

Idaho is a boater’s paradise. Hundreds-of-thousands of motorized and non-motorized vessels take to Idaho waterways annually. The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) would like to remind boater’s to “Wear It” – Always wear your life jacket.


May 17 – 23, 2014 is National Safe Boating Week and Idaho intends to participate with several events. A complete listing of events is available on the IDPR events calendar. Most organized events will occur in south-east Idaho in 2014.


Boating safety partners across the U.S. and Canada are teaming up to promote safe and responsible boating, including consistent life jacket wear each and every time on the water.
