Children's Life Jackets - Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, it is required that children under the age of 13 are required to wear U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket or life vest when underway on a vessel under 26 feet in length.

Life vests and life jackets are to be in good condition and fit the child properly at all times.

It is the parent's choice to make sure children are protected with life jackets or life vests; although the USCG and your boat insurance company will expect you to comply with the Oklahoma state boating safety regulations.
