In Florida, boating is much more than just a hobby - it is truly a way of life! With over 8,000 miles of coastline and 4,500 square miles of inland waterways, Florida is a paradise for boaters! From tenders to mega-yachts, having a boat is as normal as having a car for some Floridians. Whether you spend every possible minute out on the open ocean or just enjoy a slow cruise down the ICW or even if you don't own a boat, once you get a taste of the boating experience, you're hooked. Florida Boating Lifestyle is dedicated to the lifestyle of boating, for boaters by boaters! This website was created because we love to do the very things you do and want to share the things we have learned. We are dedicated to providing you with information and access to some of the best experiences available in the boating capital of the US. Want to find that great little restaurant or get away spot - we'll have something just for you. In the coming weeks, you will find articles, anecdotes and first hand recollections on many topics - from fishing to diving to what to look for when you are buying that next boat and much, much more. Check back in regularly as we get up and running and let us know what you think. We welcome your input and love to hear from our fellow boaters.
