BOATING SAFETY CERTIFICATE
Ontario County is fortunate to have many different opportunities to enjoy boating. New York State Law requires an operator of any mechanically propelled vessel (boat) and/or personal watercraft (jet ski) to have a Boating Safety Certificate. Please see the information below for opportunities in Ontario County.
Cornell Cooperative Extension in conjunction with the Ag Enhancement Board have created mobile billboards to remind the drivers of Ontario County that we often share the road with slow moving vehicles. These billboards will be made available for display to our agriculture partners throughout the county.
