Boater's Safety

End date

We encourage you to take advantage of all the great boating available at the JBSA Recreation Park at Canyon Lake. However, mandatory Texas State Certification is required to rent boats, canoes and kayaks for anyone born after Sept. 1, 1993. All three JBSA Outdoor Recreation offices offer a boater’s safety class for $2 per person.

  • Fort Sam Houston: Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Lackland: Mondays and Thursdays at 1 p.m. and Tuesdays and Fridays at 9 a.m.
  • Randolph: Mon., Wed. and Fri. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The certification is valid for two years from the date of the class.

Please allow at least two hours to complete this course.
