Safety is important and you may find <a href="">Water Safety Tips</a> at Discover Boating.

Another long weekend and an opportunity to be out on the water.

If you are cruising in the Gulf Islands, it may be useful to call ahead to the marinas you are planning to visit and reserve a berth.&nbsp; We have found some marinas are fully booked.

One safety tip is filing a float plan with someone on shore.&nbsp; The plan should include names and contact information for captain and all crew on board, itinerary of your cruise, and time you will be returning to home base.
