At its heart, the Safe Boating Campaign is a grassroots effort that collaborates with partners around the world to share about safe boating in their local communities through events, social media, workshops, and more.
Safety on the water is everyone’s responsibility. We are thankful for each partner for their support in building a generation of responsible boaters. Join us in celebrating these 2022 events and follow us on social media (@BoatingCampaign).
For organizations, learn more and become a partner.
For individuals, find partners in your local community and support their outreach efforts.

Ready, Set, Wear It | Dates Vary by Local Partners: Previously only offered on select dates throughout the summer, Ready, Set, Wear It is now implemented by campaign partners on various dates throughout the summer boating season. This family-friendly event teaches boaters about the importance of always wearing a life jacket, along with helpful care and maintenance information. With a bit of fun along the way! This may be a standalone event or incorporated into other local outreach efforts. #readysetwearit
