Along the inlets of South Puget Sound, the vast fjord of the Lower Hood Canal and the multitude of navigable lakes in Mason County, our Marine Enforcement deputies provide recreational boater safety emphasis patrols, rescue operations, and safety inspections. As a participant in the National Operation Dry Water Campaign, Marine Enforcement conducts boating under-the-influence patrols during the height of the recreational boating season.

In addition to enforcement, the Marine Unit also provides educational outreach programs for a variety of ages. From safety presentations at local elementary schools, mandatory Boater’s Education classes, participation in paddle sports events, and targeted education through use of social media, the Mason County Sheriff’s Office Marine Enforcement Unit uses preventative education efforts to make our waterways safer.
