Do oar driven boats require navigation lights?

Do i need navigation lights on my kayak? Or at what point does an oar driven boat need navigation lights?


  • If you plan on kayaking between sunset and sunrise you will need to display a light using either an electric torch or a lantern emitting a white light that can be seen for up to a mile away in clear conditions.

  • @LifeIsGood Any moving vessel should have navigation lights ready for bad visibility or for night use. As well as an emergency torch light that can be seen 2 miles away.
