Boating Regulations

Fish and Wildlife Officer
In a region as popular with boaters as Southwest Florida, observing proper boating safety and etiquette is of paramount importance. Respect for speed, no wake and manatee zones are an important part of proper navigation. Fun boating means safe boating, so we urge all captains to follow–and require their passengers to observe–boating rules and regulations. Nothing dampens a day of fun on the water like being cited for safety or environmental regulation violations by the professionals of the marine law enforcement task force. Please refer to the Boater’s Guide for a detailed map of regulated areas, and visit the links below for up-to-date rules and requirements for boaters.
