Airboater’s Code of Ethics

  1. I will respect the rights of all users of the recreational waterways of the State of Florida, on public waters and on adjacent private property.
  2. I will be considerate and courteous at public vessel launch ramps and docks. In an effort not to disturb other boaters, I will launch and retrieve my vessel promptly.
  3. I will always operate at a safe speed in posted “No Wake” zones.
  4. When approaching the shoreline, I will be especially aware of swimmers and other water vessels near the shoreline.
  5. I realize that my vessel’s equipment, ability, weather conditions, and especially other vessel traffic should determine my vessel speed.
  6. In case of an emergency, I will volunteer assistance.
  7. I am aware that my vessel creates air propeller wash and will use idle speed near the shoreline and in close proximity to boat ramps.
  8. I will ensure that all passengers in my vessel are equipped with safety equipment, including life vests and required safety equipment.
  9. I will avoid unnecessary disturbance of wildlife and will not enter posted “No Trespass” areas.
  10. I will pay close attention to the engine sound levels that my vessel may create and be aware of how others on the shoreline will react to it.
  11. I will not litter and will bring back all trash. I will be careful in handling my fuel.
  12. I will not interfere with or harass others. I realize that people will judge all airboaters by my individual actions
