Before your first New Hampshire boating experience at a spot like Pawtuckaway Lake or Rye Harbor State Park, make sure that you have your New Hampshire boat license or registration. Then, read up on the NH boating laws, find a boating education course, and use Take Me Fishing’s list of boating businesses to help you plan a relaxing family day on the water.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department oversees boat safety and enforces state boating laws on the waterways of New Hampshire.
