CHEYENNE, WYOMING — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be closing the 2022 watercraft registrations and preparing for the 2023 season during the month of October. Watercraft registrations will resume again on Nov. 1, 2022, at Game and Fish offices and online, with one-year registrations valid through 2023 and three-year registration valid through 2025.
Boaters will still be able to purchase 2022 aquatic invasive species stickers during October if needed.
Boat registration fees are:
- 1 year registration: $30
- 3 year registration: $80
- 1 year registration with AIS sticker: $40
- 3 year registration with AIS sticker: $110
The signature of an owner or co-owner is required for renewal or registration. Renewal notices will be sent for expired watercraft in November of 2022. Customers will be able to renew their watercraft through the mail by returning the renewal notice and fees. Aquatic invasive species sticker purchases and watercraft registration renewal can be done online.
Beginning on Nov. 1, watercraft users will be able to register new boats online. This is a change from previous years — in the past boaters had to register their watercraft in person.
“The new online registration system will allow for customers to upload their registration documents. This new system will be fast and one of the easiest ways to quickly register boats. Boat owners can also renew or transfer their registrations online with the forthcoming system,” said Jennifer Doering, License section manager.
