annual Operation Dry Water campaign
ABOVE VIDEO: Operation Dry Water is a year-round campaign to help boaters understand the dangers and risks of boating while under the influence.
If you are going to take advantage of Florida’s waters, make sure you always boat sober! Boating is an ideal activity to enjoy by yourself or with the company of friends and family.
Regardless of how much fun you are having, it is important to always make safety a priority.
The annual Operation Dry Water campaign kicks off today, so our officers will pay extra-close attention to boating under the influence (BUI), but you should know we have a zero-tolerance policy for operating a boat while under the influence EVERY day of the year.
If you decide to take alcohol on your voyage, have a designated operator who will remain sober to ensure everyone gets home safely.
If you’re caught boating under the influence, you may be fined and jailed; but most importantly, you are risking your life and the lives of those around you.
Report dangerous boaters and others taking advantage of our natural resources by calling 1-888-404-3922 or text Tip@MyFWC.com.
