Offshore Boating Waters


BoatWiki - Definitions


Offshore waters in boating terms can be defined as those areas seaward from a demarcation point that separates the offshore from inland waters of a particular country. Offshore waters are also referred to as seas, oceans, open waters and blue waters.


Whenever a boat disembarks from inland waters such as harbors, rivers, inlets and bays toward the direction of the ocean or sea it is said to to be heading offshore.


Boaters cruising offshore will typically document their vessel with the U.S. coast Guard. This will offer protections under the U.S. flag and make it easier to clear foreign ports.


Navigational, safety and registration issues are of great importance when boating offshore. Be sure to do everything possible in preparing for such events before setting off.

Please assist your fellow boaters by wiki-sharing any comments or experiences regarding this subject.
