Florida is called the Sunshine State for good reason: it is home to nearly 1,200 miles of pristine coastline and over 600 miles of beautiful sandy beaches. In addition, the state of Florida boasts more than 11,000 miles of rivers, streams, and waterways and more than 7,700 lakes. This makes Florida a virtual boater’s paradise–365 days of the year. With our mild climate and sunny weather, nearly 900,000 registered boaters call Florida their home.
