Life Jacket Loaner Program

New Mexico State Parks facilitates a statewide life jacket loaner program in partnership with the Boat U.S. Foundation, the Sea Tow Foundation, and federal and local government agencies.

What is a Life Jacket Loaner Program?

When you go out boating and do not have a life jacket or find yours does not fit properly, you can visit a life jacket loaner station and borrow an infant, child, youth, or adult life jacket for the day or weekend—at no charge. When finished, simply return the life jackets to the same station.

Life jacket loaner stations are located at various parks and recreation areas, marinas, and boat ramps.
