Watercraft on the Beach

If you are planning to launch a rigid watercraft such as metal or fiberglass canoes and boats from the shore of the Pacific Ocean in Cannon Beach, you must have a permit issued by the Police Department. Launching of inflatable devices such as rafts, boats, air mattresses, inner tubes, and similar devices may be restricted by Lifeguards on a case-by-case basis when necessary for public safety or the safety of an individual.
