Boating Tip – Safe Summer Boating

Weather in the summer months can be unpredictable and change quickly. Be prepared by:

  • Checking the forecast with your local National Weather Service (NWS) coastal office before you leave your dock
  • Check the latest NWS buoy observations from the National Data Buoy Center
  • Make sure your boat has all essential & required safety equipment including Life Jackets, Fire Extinguishers, Flares, Communication Devices including cell phones, weather radios
  • Apps are available for up to the minute information

In SW Florida, storms tend to form over land in the summer. If you see storms forming, head to a safe place as soon as possible.
