Boating Safety & Regulations

Carry all United States Coast Guard required items, including personal flotation devices, on board your boat. It is easy to become confused or lost while traveling through mangroves. Carry a nautical chart and compass. Sudden storms can appear at any time. Check the weather and tides before leaving shore. Leave a float plan with family or friends. Be prepared for mosquitoes during the summer months. Make sure your tales of the Everglades are of beautiful vistas and tight lines-- not of being rescued!
