Respectful boating guidelines from the Muskoka-based organization, Safe Quiet Lakes:
I will never operate my boat beyond the level of my skills.
I will be aware of and obey all laws and regulations governing operation of my boat.
I will operate my boat with
caution and courtesy to others at all times.
I will minimize my wake impact on shorelines, docks, structures and people.
I will always steer well clear of other boats, swimmers and wildlife.
I will set a speed and heading that is safe and comfortable for my passengers and others on the water.
I will provide safety instructions and offer appropriate life jackets or PFDs to everyone who travels in my boat.
I will carry all equipment necessary to operate my boat safely and within the law.
I will not consume alcohol in my boat or allow my boat to be operated by anyone who is impaired.
I understand that boating is a shared experience and I will not create excessive noise or operate my boat in a manner that disrupts the peaceful enjoyment of the lake by others.
