Let's Go Boating

Rapids, rivers and riptides

From Christopher Columbus's original extreme adventure to Uncle Bob's latest fishing (tall) tale, the open seas tempt us to discover something no one else has seen.

Not only are outdoor enthusiasts happier than their cubicle-bound comrades, they're more environmentally conscious.

Did you know that water activities also help fund the future? Boating and fishing license fees help pay for safety campaigns that save lives and conservation programs that preserve water resources. Motorboat fuel taxes and special taxes on fishing equipment and tackle also go toward restocking fish resources.
