Float Plan

File a float plan each time you plan to head out on the water.

Send or give your float plan to a reliable, dependable, responsible person who will notice and act if you do not return. Your plan should include at minimum the 4 Ws:

  • Who: the full names of everyone paddling
  • Where: your planned launch site, route, and take-out point
  • When: your approximate launch and return time and when to call 911
  • What to Do: instructions for what your responsible person is to do and who to call if you don’t check in on time
