Boating in Florida

What to do in the Event of a Hurricane

When a tropical storm or hurricane affects our state, Florida's boat owners and operators have more to be concerned about than just their homes and families. The FWC has gathered  informational resources to help boaters prepare for storms and be better able to deal with the aftermath.  Learn more about Hurricane preparedness.

 

The FWC's Division of Law Enforcement works to provide safe and enjoyable boating for the people of Florida and its visitors through the effective and coordinated management of our waterways. We will strive to work with all stakeholders when developing rules and making statutory recommendations. We will accomplish this by incorporating sound scientific data, reasonable public input and common sense. We will work to formulate the best solutions possible without jeopardizing our natural resources or our freedoms to navigate.


FWC Facts:
Boat/PWC-rental facilities may not rent a vessel that does not have proper safety equipment, exceeds the recommended horsepower or load capacity, or is not seaworthy.
