Every GetMyBoat operator must ensure lawful and complete adherence to local guidelines. This encompasses acquiring appropriate registrations, passes, permits, and meeting the requisites for vessels and captains. Operators are responsible for utilizing designated docks and approved boating areas for commercial activities, alongside complying with any other regulations outlined in local laws and facility rules.

Lake Conroe, a 21,000-acre reservoir in Montgomery County, Texas, is a popular destination for boating, jet-skiing, and fishing. While the lake's name suggests that it's located primarily in Conroe, Texas, most of the lake actually falls within unincorporated Montgomery County.

Party Boat Operator License:

To operate a charter vessel (excluding sailboats) that carries more than six passengers and is 30 feet or longer in length on inland waters, you must have a Party Boat Operator License. The only exception is if you hold a USCG OUPV License or a higher level of Captain's License.
