Don't Cruise With Booze
Source: Transport Canada
Mixing alcohol and boating is illegal and far more dangerous than you may think. Under normal conditions, sun, wind, the motion of the boat and even just being tired can dull your senses. Alcohol makes things even worse, slowing your hand-eye coordination and clouding your good judgment.
Don’t cruise with booze! You might harm yourself or others. You are responsible for the safety of your guests and for not putting other waterway users in danger. You must always be prepared and alert.
Drinking and driving (whether on land or water) is against the law and the consequences, even for a first offence, can last a lifetime.
Provinces and territories have their own rules on legal alcohol limits — when you can drink and how alcohol can be carried on board. Contact your local law enforcement authorities for more information.
