BATON ROUGE - Louisiana is once again participating in the national "Safe Boating Week" that is scheduled for May 17-23 and signifies the beginning of the spring and summer boating season.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will again be reminding all boaters to be safe, responsible and knowledgeable while on the water during this safe boating week. 

Safe Boating Week is a time for all boaters to inspect their vessels to ensure that all required safety equipment is on board and that vessels are in good working condition.

LDWF Enforcement Division agents will be out in full force as always during the week to perform boating safety checks and driving or operating a vessel while intoxicated patrols.
