Boating

Spring Aboard Large Logo 

The week of April 20 - 26, 2015 is Spring Aboard campaign week. With spring in the air, it is a great opportunity to take a boating safety course. An informed boater is more likely to recognize potentially hazardous situations and to avoid mishaps. With today's wide variety of courses available, there is a course for everyone's schedule.

Take a course today.

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.
