Inspection stations are closed for the 2018 season.
Watercraft inspections are still required. You can get your watercraft inspected at a regional or area FWP office.
Plan ahead and stop at a regional or FWP office for an inspection if:
are coming into Montana from out-of-state.
are traveling west over the Continental Divide into western Montana (the
Columbia River Basin).
are coming off Tiber or Canyon Ferry Reservoirs.
- Certified boaters must still follow the terms of their contract; they are required to get an inspection if they are travelling to another waterbody.
- Certified boater ramps will remain open ONLY to certified boaters.
- You are launching anywhere within the Flathead Basin and your watercraft last launched on waters outside of the Flathead Basin.
