If you were born on or after January 1, 1988 the state of Florida requires you to have taken a NASBLA approved boater safety course to operate a boat or any personal watercraft.

A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is a free courtesy examination of your boat and safety equipment to verify the presence and condition of safety equipment required by both federal and state authorities.

Tampa Power Squadron developed a training simulator which provides a comprehensive and immersive simulated boating experience for our boating class and is easy for other squadrons to make their own.

This is our sister site which is intended to be a place to provide information and resources for boating on Tampa Bay

Tampa Power Squadron is pleased to announce our newest community effort, myfloatplan.org. This website allows boaters to create a user profile which contains the essential information about themselves and their vessel that would be needed if they did not return at their expected time. Profiles allow boaters to simply update their voyage specific information as needed for any future trips which will be reflected in the new float plan they can download.
