Boating - Motorized

Boater coming in to Salt Springs Marina

Thanks to our renowned waterways - the St. Johns River and the Ocklawaha River - and our many, many lakes, recreational boating is a popular activity in the Ocala National Forest.

Motorized boating includes the use of outboard motors, trolling motors, and Jetskis. Please keep your safety and that of those around you first and foremost by practicing safe boating.
