While there is no actual “license,” the State of New Hampshire requires boaters aged 16 and older to have an approved boating safety certificate to operate a vessel over 25 horsepower (HP) on any of our waters. The safety certificate can be obtained out of state from certain approved organizations, including the US Coast Guard, and provides the user with safe boating tips in Wolfeboro that they can use to have a safer and more enjoyable time out on the water.
