Maine has many beautiful lakes, ponds, and rivers to explore by boat. Please remember to check your boat before you put it into the water, to ensure that you aren't bringing any invasive milfoil into the water body. Once milfoil is introduced to a lake or pond, it is nearly impossible to remove. Learn about Maine boating registration and issues related to invasive plants. Please also remember to keep a safe distance from wildlife that may be nesting or living in or along the water, too.
Enjoy your time on Maine waters!
