Boating Safety

Boat Inspection
Can your boat pass the State Inspection? Do the inspection yourself and see.

If you have questions about the Yakima County Marine Patrol or would like a free boat inspection at your residence, please email Reserve Sergeant James Scott.

Boating & Kids
Looking for a fun and informative way to teach kids about boating? Deputy James Scott has Boating Education Fun Packets available. Send a email asking for them. Making sure to let him know how many you would like.

Northwest Watch Program
The 13th USCG (U.S. Coast Guard) District "Northwest Watch" Program (similar to a Neighborhood Watch Program) solicits Water Front / Water View Home Owners to become a volunteer who may be called on to assist the USCG and local law enforcement agencies in search and rescue missions, flare sightings, oil spill identification, and with many other marine related missions.
