Permission to come aboard? Sure!

Anyone can join who has an active interest in boating education and safety. Most people join because they find a class that excites them — even with the first year's membership the classes are a bargain. See Member Benefits for discounts and the many other reasons to join.


If you are new to boating we recommend you take an Introductory Class and receive your Washington State Education Card before joining. Experienced boaters are welcome to join without passing a formal test.


If you are already a member and want to renew or transfer, see membership table below.
