Operation Dry Water spreads awareness of the danger of boating under the influence and the heightened awareness and enforcement weekend is June 29 - July 1, 2018.

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:
When operating a monohull boat less than 20 feet long, do not exceed the maximum weight, persons or horsepower capacity displayed on the manufacturer's capacity plate.
