Designated Operator Program

The Lake Havasu Marine Association offers a program that allows boaters to hire a Designated Captain to operate their privately owned or rented boat for the day. Designated Captains are necessary, logical, and much-needed in order to minimize the number of intoxicated boat operators on the water, especially on busy holiday weekends. The cost of hiring a Designated Captain pales in comparison to what an OUI (operating under the influence) conviction will cost the driver of a boat or PWC (personal water craft).
