What Does Michigan Law Say About Drinking and Boating?

  • If you are thinking about driving your boat after a couple stiff drinks, don’t! It is no different than driving a car – if your blood alcohol content is .08 or higher, you can be charged.
  • If you are under the age of 21 and have had ANY amount of alcohol, you can also be charged – Michigan has a zero-tolerance policy!
  • If you refuse a sobriety test by law enforcement, you will be banned from operating your PWC or boat for one year.

Be Safe and have a blast!
