The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is reminding boaters who plan to be on the water during July 4 weekend to be smart and stay safe.

Become an educated, responsible boater by completing the Boat Florida safe boating course, and make Florida boating safer and more enjoyable this summer.

At (, boaters learn the official boat education content developed for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. This safe boating course lets students get their Florida boating license (or jet ski license) online to comply with Florida law. The new-and-improved Boat Florida course now offers the highest-quality online experience—less text, plenty of interactive reviews and practice, and on-the-water videos.

Students move quickly through short segments designed for bite-sized reading and quick comprehension. Learning is reinforced with interactive animations, and students feel like they’re on the water as they study casting off and docking, rescue techniques, the "Circle of Death," and other boaters safety course topics.

Best of all, Boat Ed has added more than an hour of streaming video with 45 exciting on-the-water action sequences. Produced over a 10-month period at a cost of $250,000, Boat Ed’s video was shot with state-of-art equipment (jib arm cameras, specialized camera boats, gyro stabilizers) and professional talent (40 actors/extras, 10 camera crew members, and professional boat and PWC operators). Getting an online boaters license has never been so fun!

Students study the fast-paced boating safety course ( online when it fits their schedule—setting up a free account and logging in or out as they wish. The online boating exam fee includes the boat course, unit quizzes, and unlimited attempts at the online boating license test. No payment is required until students pass the final boaters exam.

After passing the Florida boating exam, students receive their permanent Florida Boating Safety Education ID Card by mail.

As an added bonus, students who send a copy of their boaters safety course certificate (or boating licence, as it’s sometimes called) to their insurance agency might be eligible for a discount on boat or personal watercraft (PWC) insurance.

Boat Ed also offers an online boating safety course for violators. Florida law requires that anyone convicted of a criminal boating violation, a non-criminal boating infraction which resulted in a boating accident, or two non-criminal boating safety infractions within a 12-month period, must enroll in, attend, and successfully complete an approved safe boating course for violators.
