Boating in Naples and SW Florida - Don't Forget Boat Insurance!

Spring is here and many Naples boaters are preparing for the upcoming season.  Naples, Marco Island and the surrounding area have many beautiful islands that are only accessible by boat.

Keewaydin Island is a wildlife sanctuary frequented by residents and tourists.  The pristine beaches are home to Least turns and loggerhead sea turtles. 
Boating is a fantastic way to get outdoors and enjoy nature, family and of course fishing.  Proper licensing and registration are required by the State of Florida.  In fact, anyone born on or after January 1, 1988 who operates a vessel must pass an approved boaters safety course. You can find more information on boating requirements, classes, rules and regulations for salt water fishing and boating at Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Don't forget that Boat insurance is very important.  In fact, our agents recommend insuring your boat just as you would insure your auto with liability coverage at the $100,000 to $ 300,000 level. Personal contents such as fishing rods and electronics can be insured as well. Sea Tow coverage is also available and is a great product.  You can feel confident that you will return to port safely with this added coverage.  Typically boat insurance costs less than auto insurance.
