Did you know the every state in the US has different requirements for boating licenses and for boater education. Some states are very lax about these things, other states are more strict. Fortunately, for boaters in the golden state, you do not need a boating license in California. There are also no boater education requirements in California. However, you may receive a discount on your insurance if you take a boat safety class. These rules may very well change in the upcoming years. To stay up to date, you can visit the California Division of Boating and Waterways website.
