If the driver of the pontoon boat or Jet ski or any watercraft over 10hp is born on or after January 1, 1988; we are required to ask to see a boating safety education identification card issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or the equivalent from another state.
If you do not possess a boating safety education card you can either :
1) Take a Temporary Certificate test down at the Blue Crab Water Sports booth. (Lasts for one year)
2) Follow the links on the Destin Info page on this site entitled "Official Boater Safety Education course" (Lasts a lifetime).Costs vary.
The temporary card requires you to read some information and then take a 25 question test.
You will also need to bring with you :
1) A valid driving license
2) The fee for the test - $3
