Personal Watercraft Permits

Personal Watercraft Permits

Residents can obtain a boating permit for personal, non-motorized watercraft use after completing a Daybreak Community Association lake use agreement form.

Residents can launch boats from West Beach, East Lake or North Shore.

Why do I need a permit?
This permit helps pay for the cost of the sticker, which ensures that the amenity is used by Daybreak residents and that the proper types of vessels are used on the lake.

What kinds of watercraft are allowed on the lake?
Personal non-motorized boats which includes kayaks, canoes, row boats and paddle boards that do not exceed 17 feet in length. *Inflatable watercraft must be inspected by the Harbor Master before a permit can be placed on the vessel. Only authorized motorized boats operated by the community association are permitted.
