Serve Oregon's recreational boating public through education, enforcement, access, and environmental stewardship for a safe and enjoyable experience
The agency has a funding arm and regulatory arm and is governed by a five-member volunteer Board that helps plot the course on budget and policy decisions. The agency is directly funded by recreational boaters in the form of registration, title, and permit fees, as well as through marine fuel taxes. No lottery, general fund tax dollars or local facility parking fees support the agency or its programs. Boater-paid fees support boating safety services (on-the-water law enforcement, training, and equipment, waterway obstruction mitigation, and boat inspections), boating safety education programs, grants for the construction and maintenance of boating access facilities, and environmental protection programs (Clean Boater, Clean Marina, Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention and Abandoned/Derelict Vessels). The agency also registers reputable outfitter/guides and charters.
