To promote boating safety, I have proclaimed June as Safe Boating MonthClick here to see the proclamation.  Please join us by practicing Safe Boating here at Indian Lake.

First Weekend-June 4th & June 5th
Voluntary Boat Safety Inspections will be offered in cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.  

Schedule your inspection here => https://calendly.com/ilboatinspection.

Available times:  Saturday, June 4, from 9 am – noon and Sunday, June 5, from 1 pm to 4 pm
 
Having your boat inspected is a great way to make sure that your boat is legal and all recommended safety equipment is onboard.  Don’t worry if your boat fails a voluntary inspection.  No citations will be issued!  The Police and Coast Guard Auxiliary will kindly tell you what’s wrong so you can fix the problem or purchase what’s missing.  Our goal is to keep you safe!  Inspections will take place at the launch ramp near the marina.  We can inspect trailered boats prior to launch or those already on the water.  For your convenience, we have an online scheduling system with 15-minute time slots on Saturday and Sunday. 

Please schedule your voluntary boat safety inspection here => https://calendly.com/ilboatinspection.
Second Weekend-June 11th
The PA Fish and Boat Commission will hold a FREE Basic Boating course at Indian Lake Lodge on Saturday, June 11, from 8 am to 4 pm.  Attendees must pre-register.  To sign up for the class, please email Dina Cable (DCable@pa.gov) or Chief Bellak (policechief@indianlakepa.gov) with a name and phone number for each student.  In the email, please note that you are interested in the Indian Lake class and include the student’s age if they are under 18.
 
You must pass this course to receive a permanent Boating Safety Education Certificate.
 
Boating Safety Education Certificates are required:
  • To operate a personal watercraft
  • For persons born on or after January 1, 1982, to operate boats powered by motors greater than 25 horsepower.
 
The minimum age to operate a personal watercraft or boat with more than 25 hp, is 12 years old.  This class is a convenient opportunity for anyone 12 or older who plans to operate a watercraft on Indian Lake.
