A common question we get asked is “Can you drink and drive a pontoon boat?” No. Alcoholic consumption while operating an aquatic vessel is treated the same way as it is on our roadways. It is unlawful to operate a pontoon boat while under the influence and can result in a DUI charge. If alcohol consumption is part of the plans for your pontoon trip, there must be a sober designated operator at all times.
