No. On a rental boat in North Carolina, you are not required to have a boaters license. However, as a company policy we require the driver to have prior boat driving experience. Also, as an insurance policy anyone driving the boat has to be 27 or older. If you do not have boating experience, you can take a local boating safety course or sign up for one of our own driving lessons that are offered daily 9am-10am. You can book a driving lesson in the booking section.
