Paddlers and aquatic invasive species
Manually powered boats (paddle and oar) 10 feet long and longer are required to purchase an Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention (AIS) permit and carry it when operating the watercraft. Non-resident paddlecraft operators are also required to purchase a permit and carry it when boating in Oregon waters.
The Oregon Marine Board sells both an annual and two-year Tyvek tags for paddlecraft and can be purchased through the marine board’s office in Salem or online through the marine board’s new storefront. Permits expire on Dec. 31 annually, or every two years depending on which permit is purchased. Out-of-state permits for non-motorized boats are also $5.
