Our easy to understand programs are operated by businesses; local and federal governmental agencies; non-profit organizations; civic groups; clubs; and individuals in 631 communities across 46 states and generate millions of media impressions year after year to raise awareness about the importance of preventing boating under the influence and drowning. Requests for our boating safety programs are growing each year and we need your support. Help us prevent boating under the influence and drowning in your area by joining our cause today! 


Life Jacket Loaner Program

Since 2008, the Sea Tow Foundation has distributed over 50,000 life jackets to local businesses and organizations across the country. The nearly 600 life jacket loaner stations currently in operation are placed in locations where boaters will have easy access to the life jackets, such as boat ramps, marinas and parks.  Boaters may borrow the life jackets at no cost and are asked to return them when they are finished so that they are available for others to use.

Your organization can apply to host and maintain a Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Station stocked with life jackets in a variety of sizes available for boaters to borrow free of charge for a day out on the water.

The Life Jacket Loaner program has the following components: Life Jacket Drive, Life Jacket Loaner Station Grant, and the Life Jacket Loaner Partnership. Each includes information on how to setup, care for, maintain, and promote your Life Jacket Loaner Program efforts year after year.
