Summer is right around the corner, which means boating season is on the way! We urge you to stay safe and recommend following these five tips when on the waterways:

🚤 Always wear a lifejacket
🚤 Utilize the engine cut-off device
🚤 Never boat under the influence
🚤 Watch out for carbon monoxide exposure
🚤 Have a plan to communicate past the boat

By itself, Newport Harbor sees almost half of all boating incidents in Southern California. Most boating accidents occur in July, on the weekends, and in the afternoon. Anyone operating a boat has the same duty of care as drivers of automobiles and trucks. But many operators are not familiar with the rules and regulations that govern inland and coastal waters, and alcohol plays a factor in 50% of fatal boating accidents in California. Should the worst happen and your fun in the sun turns into a nightmare, we’re here to steer you through it. Learn more at
