Boater Safety Classes at Grand Bay NERR

boating safety

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, & Parks, in cooperation with the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), will be offering boater safety education classes on June 7 and July 26 to promote boater safety to local citizens. This time of year, safety on our waters is an important issue given the access to water and the large number of boaters in our area.

The classes are free of charge and open to the public. A DMR Marine Patrol Officer will be instructing each class. Come familiarize yourself with the information you need and find out how to boat safely on our beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast, especially if you are new to boating. Get Salty Safely, Y’all!

You must be at least 10 years of age to receive a certificate of course completion. Follow this link for more information on these classes and others across the region.

This is all classroom instruction at one of the jewels of Jackson County: the Grand Bay NERR facility.  See below for address and class dates and times.
