Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death among children ages 1 – 14 years old. Wearing a life jacket saves lives. Washington State law requires children ages 12 and younger to wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket or life vest on vessels fewer than 19 feet long. There must be a life jacket on board for each person older than 12.
The cost for life jackets sizes infant to youth large is $20, and for teens to adult size XXXL, is $30. The life jackets are comfortable, high quality vests in fashion colors. All sales are final -sorry, Parks cannot offer refunds or returns.
