Viewing from a Boat



 

The U.S. Coast Guard has established a Safety Zone for the Fort Lauderdale Air Show flown from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in accordance with FAA regulations and in consultation with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Army Corps of Engineers. The safety zone is established to both keep non-essential personnel clear of the aerobatic box and to keep boat anchors from damaging the coral reefs offshore.

 

Viewing of the Fort Lauderdale Air Show is permitted in the area on the eastern perimeter of the United States Coast Guard Safety Zone.  The eastern perimeter extends for four miles parallel with the flight path of the performing aircraft and is approximately one mile away from the air show centerline. U.S. Coast Guard, Broward County Sheriff and Fort Lauderdale Police will be patrolling the perimeter of the Coast Guard Safety Zone and will strictly enforce the perimeter of the Coast Guard Safety Zone.

    First time watching the show by water what is the depth of the water for anchoring how much anchor line is needed or will they be buoys

    • FL Air Show says:

      Hey Marco – depends on where you are anchored – you’d need to speak with the Coast Guard about that.

    • FL Air Show says:

      We recommend that you contact the US Coast Guard office in Fort Lauderdale. They will provide guidance on appropriate areas to potentially anchor without damaging the reef.
