Boating laws in Texas are focused on promoting safety, preventing accidents and saving lives. While these regulations set forth various requirements for boat operators, they also pertain to vessels and the mandatory safety equipment for them.
When boat operators and owners fail to comply with Texas boating laws:
- They can put themselves, their passengers and others on the waterways at a greater risk of accident, injury and death.
- They can be liable for any wrecks or harm resulting from their noncompliance and negligence.
At the Amaro Law Firm, our lawyers have extensive experience helping the victims of boating accidents pursue the financial recoveries they deserve. Diligent, skilled and tenacious, our attorneys can help you hold all negligent parties accountable for your boating accident while positioning your claim for the maximum recovery.

Texas Boating Laws: Rules for Operators
The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD)1 oversees and enforces boating laws throughout the state. For the operators of motorboats, TPWD regulations apply to issues like (but not limited to):
- Boater education – Anyone born on or after September 1, 1993 is required to complete a Boater Education course in order to legally operate a personal watercraft (PWC) or a boat with a horsepower (hp) rating of at least 15 hp. Here is more information about Boater Education courses in Texas. Please note that you do not have to be a resident of Texas in order to take the Texas Boater Education course.
- Boating while intoxicated – Those who have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or greater can be charged with boating while intoxicated (BWI), a criminal offense similar to driving while intoxicated. In other words, it is illegal to operate boats on Texas waterways with a BAC level of 0.08 or more. While drunk boat operators can face similar (if not the same) criminal penalties as drunk drivers, they can also be liable in civil court for the accidents and harm they cause.2
- Reporting boating accidents in Texas – A boat operator who is involved in an accident will be legally required to report that accident to the TPWD or a local law enforcement agency:
- Within 48 hours if the incident causes death
- Within 30 days if the accident caused more than $2,000 in property damage or injuries needing medical treatment more extensive than first aid.
Please be aware that these boating regulations pertain to those operating recreational motorboats from the inside of the vessel. Different laws can apply to those operating personal watercraft (PWC), meaning someone operates the vessel via sitting, standing or kneeling on it.3
Texas Boating Laws: Vessel Requirements
For vessels, Texas boating laws regulate various aspects of required safety equipment for motorboats and PWC,4 such as (but not limited to) the required:
- Life-saving equipment – Personal flotation devices (PFDs) must be lifejackets that are approved by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). Children who are 12 or younger must wear a PFD when they are on a vessel that is “underway” (e.g., not anchored or aground). Also, inflatable PFDs are not acceptable for PWC or high-speed activities on waterways.
- Lights – All vessels operating on Texas waterways are required to have at least one bright light, such as a lantern, a flashlight or some type of fixed light. Vessels between 12 and 20 meters long must also have special navigation lights fixed at the front of the watercraft.
- Sound-producing devices – While motorboats that are less than 12 meters long must carry a whistle or horn, those longer than 12 meters must have a whistle or horn and a bell. The intent is to allow boat operators to effectively produce noise in low- or poor-visibility conditions.
- Other equipment – Depending on the nature of a motorboat, other safety equipment that may be required by Texas law can include mirrors, fire extinguishers and water exhaust manifolds.
To monitor compliance with Texas boating regulations, marine enforcement officers and TPWD game wardens regularly patrol waterways and inspect vessels.

“ The Amaro Law Firm is simply the best there is! I contacted them trying to find someone to handle my serious head-on motor vehicle accident where the defendant rammed into me at 35-40 mph. He was ticketed for the accident and I was left in my car, deployed airbag in my lap, with serious injuries that I still suffer from almost 4 years later with future joint replacement surgery yet to come. Felipe was my first contact (aside from the receptionist who was very friendly and professional) and he spent almost an hour patiently listening to me explain my case and the accident and each of my injuries. The next day, I met with Wendy Zagala, firm paralegal, who spent 3 hours (!) before the firm had even taken me on as a client, listening to every minute part of my story, from the horror of watching the defendant barrel into me to the terror of being back-boarded on a stretcher to the hospital to the frustration and disgust brought on in dealing with the defendant's insurance company's attorney and his lies and game playing. Tears, anger, frustration, and an ever-growing sense of hopelessness ... until I got to the Amaro Law Firm. Mr. Amaro's prior experience as a insurance company defense attorney assured me that he would know exactly how to handle my case. His vast experience, his integrity, his professionalism, his dedication, his support and compassion, his doggedness, his intelligence ... what more can one ask for in seeking a personal injury attorney? Nothing! ”Lori Khan

“Hello, my name is Matthew Scott. I live in Florida and after the BP oil spill occurred, the company I work for was asked to send representatives to aid in the security of the areas where the workers cleaning the oil spill were and their housing areas. (Tent Cities). I was there for five weeks working 12 hours on and 12 hours off. Even with all the precautions that were taken to prevent anything from happening I did feel it necessary to file a lawsuit against BP. The Amaro Law Firm handled my case and it was completed to my satisfaction. Without the help of paralegal Candace McCullough, I feel it would have been much harder for me.

“As the owner of an accounting consulting services business, I have had the pleasure of working with the Amaro Firm for almost three years on Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement claims litigation. Our work together on the Deepwater Horizon spill claims process involves navigating an extensive and complex settlement agreement and representing victims of the Spill against numerous parties whom all have a vested interest in ensuring that those victims never receive economic remuneration. Throughout this arduous process, the Amaro Firm’s staff has consistently demonstrated themselves to be highly skilled, insightful, meticulous, and unrelenting in their pursuit of justice for their clients. David Miller is a model example of the exceptional attorneys working at the Amaro Firm. While collaborating directly with Mr. Miller for the past eighteen months on Deepwater Horizon Settlement claims, I have witnessed first-hand his excellent analytical skills and ability to quickly formulate an effective strategy for each individual client. Additionally, Mr. Miller’s keen eye for detail and exceptional writing skills make him an invaluable asset in virtually any legal setting. Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Miller is easily accessible at all times and is highly motivated to help each and every one of his clients and vendors succeed in any way he can. All of the aforementioned attributes are also exemplified by James Amaro, the Managing Partner of the firm. Mr. Amaro is a leader in his field and is an impeccable example of the intellect and unwavering persistence required of all attorneys involved in guiding clients through complex legal disputes. Due to the high degree of competence, skill, and overall professionalism exhibited by the Amaro Firm I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of expert counsel with their BP Economic or Medical claims, general insurance disputes or personal injury lawsuits, especially trucking accident litigation.
