Boat Permit Information
Day passes may be purchased directly on this page, from City Hall and the Winter Park Library. Parking is available at Dinky Dock Park on a first-come, first-serve basis. If trailer parking spaces are full, parking will have to be secured offsite. There is no fee for launching canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.
Boat permit costs are computed according to a formula based upon the horsepower (hp) of the motor, plus (+) the length of the boat in feet (lg) as reported on the State of Florida registration for the boat, times (*) a set amount.
Fractional boat lengths are rounded up (a 19.2 foot boat is considered to be 20 feet.)
The maximum length of any boat to be launched or operated on the city chain of lakes shall not exceed 21 feet, with the exception of pontoon boats and sail boats, which shall not exceed 24 feet. No boat exceeding a width of eight feet shall enter any canal.
Canoes and kayaks can be used in all city lakes unless otherwise posted. If you are using a car or truck to haul your boat, please obey all parking restrictions. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed and/or towed.
