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:
The operator of a boat towing a skier must either have an observer on board and paying close attention or use a wide-angle rear-view mirror.
