The Alabama Marine Patrol (AMP) Division’s mission is to enhance safety and promote responsible use of resources on Alabama’s waterways through enforcement, education, and community activities. The AMP Division patrols Alabama’s public waterways, oversees the registration of all pleasure boats and the licensing of all boat operators, and operates a statewide education program. The State’s regulatory waterway marking program, presently overseeing 1,518 hazard and control markers/zones, is also administered by the AMP Division.
