boating safety course age requirements graphic

Age Requirements:

In Delaware, all operators born on or after January 1, 1978 must have completed a boating course approved by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. Proof of boater education (a state-issued card or NASBLA-approved certificate) is required to be carried aboard during operation.

No one under the age of 14 may operate a PWC under any conditions. A person 14 or 15 years of age, in possession of a boating safety certificate may operate a PWC only if under direct adult supervision. Those operators 16 years of age or older, who hold a boating safety certificate, may operate a PWC without restrictions.
