Safety Tips for Being Out on the Water at the Lake of the Ozarks

Pay attention to your surroundings.

This means pay attention to other boats or personal watercrafts that may be in the area. Also, be mindful of the fact that people may be swimming or fishing in the area. Paying attention can allow you to react quickly in the event you need to slow down, turn or stop altogether to prevent an accident from happening.

Designate a sober boat captain at all times.

There is no excuse for boating while intoxicated. If you happen to have boated out to a cove and had too many drinks, then ask a sober friend to drive or call someone. There are services available to get your boat home safely.

Do not speed on the water.

There are designated speeds or no wake zones on the Lake of the Ozarks. Be mindful of that and follow those speed limits or abide by those no wake zones. They are there for a reason.

Be careful when going to huge boating events at the Lake.

There are several FUN boating events at the Lake of the Ozarks, such as Aquapalooza, the Lake Race, the Shootout, and more. Events like this can attract many boaters to the area, which means the Lake can get crowded near these events, so boat cautiously.

Be mindful of the weather.

Check the weather forecast before you go out on the water. Don't ruin your vacation by being stuck out in a storm.

Have all necessary equipment available on the boat.

There are certain things that are required to be on boats, such as all boats have to have lifejackets for everyone. You can check the U.S. Coast Guard website for details on what all is required, but if you are pulled over by Water Patrol without having these items, you could be in more trouble.
