- Idle Speed / No Wake in all waterway canals, bays, and within 500 feet of a seawall. *Idle Speed / No Wake means ‘the minimum speed required to maintain steerage’.
- Idle Speed / No Wake within 500 feet of all Marco Island beaches. Any boating activity in beach areas should be kept to boating directly to and from the beach and well away from any swimmers.
- United States Coast Guard “rules of the road” apply to all navigational channels. Marco Island channels are marked with the standard RED markers (triangular) and GREEN markers (square) using the conventional “red-right returning” system.
- Operation of a boat while intoxicated is prohibited.
- All boats must conform to United States Coast Guard Regulations.
- All boats must be properly registered and documented.

- Anchoring or any other activity that interferes with navigation in channels is prohibited.
- Discharge of untreated sewage is prohibited in Florida waters.
- It is essential for all new boaters on Marco Island to be familiar with all of the bridge clearances, as there are 14 throughout the gulf. Boaters need to know the specs of their individual boats as well as the route they plan on taking. Safety 1st!
