If you are renting a boat or a jet ski be sure to find out the local regulations and that your boat is equipped with the basic life preservers etc.

The coast guard is vigilant here and will fine you for violating any regulations. Anytime the coast guard stops you they will do a safety check to make sure you have the required supplies. i.e. life vests, flairs, anchor etc....

Be careful not to speed in no wake or manatee zones. These zones are guarded closely and the fines are heavy. We want to protect our natural resources and our presious manatee

and just a note Drinking and Driving a boat in Florida is a CRIME

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
