Unlike most of the other states, Florida offers its residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy their favorite outdoor recreational activities twelve months a year. Florida has more than 11,000 miles of rivers, streams, and waterways, more than a thousand miles of coastline, and more than seven thousand lakes greater than ten acres in size. Thousands of our residents moved to Florida from other states precisely for the weather and the water. Always use caution on the water and particularly when you operate a personal watercraft. PWC accidents are preventable. With a little caution on your side, fun on the water doesn’t have to turn tragic.
