Agency Fees

The Marine Board is a fee-based agency and does not receive any general fund dollars. 

The revenue generated from:

  • Motorboat title and registrations
  • Waterway access permits
  • Out-of-state aquatic invasive species permits
  • Outfitter Guide and Charter Licensing
  • Boating safety education (boater education card)
...all go back to boaters through

  • Boating facility and education grants
  • Contracts with county Sheriff's Offices and Oregon
    State Police for on-water enforcement
  • Environmental and education programs

Your fees also support:

  • Aquatic invasive species inspection stations along Oregon's borders
  • Contracts to remove, dismantle, recycle, and dispose of abandoned and derelict boats

Thanks to you, we have sustainable recreational boating in Oregon! Your boating dollars go a long way. Oregon receives federal funding based on the number of registered motorboats. We also receive gas tax revenue to support programs for you.
