Everyone who operates a power-driven boat needs proof of competency — something that shows they understand the basic rules and how to safely operate a boat. The most common proof of competency is the Pleasure Craft Operator Card. You can get the card by taking a boating safety course in-person or online, and passing the test at the end of the course.
For full details, please visit Transport Canada's website.
We rent boats for use on the Ottawa River from our location at the Marina. If you do not have an operator card, you can still rent the boat if you can demonstrate that you understand the rules and can operator a water vessel.
