Reciprocity refers to the mutual recognition of boating safety certifications between states. This means that a certification obtained in one state, such as California, is generally recognized by another, like Florida.

While most states honor out-of-state boating certifications, regulations can vary. It's advisable to confirm with the boating authority of the state where you plan to boat. For a detailed state-by-state reciprocity map, please visit NASBLA's reciprocity page.
