Safe Waterskiing Endorsement
Effective October 1, 2015, in order to operate a vessel or personal watercraft (ex. Jetski) on Connecticut waters that is towing a skier, tube, or has anyone riding the wake of the vessel, the operator must: be age 16 or older and have a valid boating certificate from either Connecticut, a state that has a reciprocal agreement with Connecticut, or a U.S. Coast Guard operator’s license and possess a Connecticut Safe Waterskiing Endorsement.
Connecticut currently has reciprocity with New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We hope to enter into reciprocal agreements with other states before Spring, 2016.
Persons who have obtained any of the certificates listed in #2 (above) prior to October 1, 2015 are exempt from needing theSafe Waterskiing Endorsement.
Beginning October 1, all classroom boating courses approved by the Commissioner resulting in a Connecticut boating safety certificate will now include the information and testing needed to qualify for the Safe Waterskiing Endorsement. Upon successful completion of the classroom course, the Safe Waterskiing Endorsement will print automatically when the boating certificate is purchased through the Online Sportsmen Licensing webpage.
