We are glad you have decided to take advantage of Georgia’s diverse waterways and go boating. You can fish the Georgia saltwater marshes in a flats boat near St. Simons Island or take a freshwater cruise on Lake Blackshear in Cordele. Before you go, just be sure that you have a valid Georgia boat license and knowledge of GA boat laws.

GA boat laws are handled by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. They also manage state boat ramps and access points.
