Float Plan

United States Coast Guard Float Plan

Whether you are planning an afternoon excursion or several days on the water, make a practice of filing a float plan before you leave. A float plan can assist rescue in the case of an emergency on the water. Leave it with a reliable person who can be depended upon to notify the proper rescue organization, should you not return as scheduled.

Download, complete, and print the Float Plan.
