Loaner Life Jackets

Life Jackets
Kids 12 and under are required to wear life jackets at all times in most of the boats launched at Point Defiance. If they find themselves without one, they can borrow one for the day.

Through collaboration with the Tacoma Yacht Club’s Outreach committee, the Point Defiance Marina has two kiosks with a fun but serious message: “Kids Don’t Float!”
