Yes, you need a license to captain a boat in Sarasota, FL if the boat has a motor of 10 horsepower or more. Florida law requires anyone born after January 1, 1988, to have a Boater Education Card, also known as a Florida Boating License, to operate a boat with a motor of 10 horsepower or more. The card can be obtained by completing an approved boating safety course, which covers topics such as boating laws, safety equipment, navigation, and more. Non-residents who have a boating safety card or certificate from another state or country that meets Florida's standards may also use it to operate a boat in Sarasota.
