The fees collected will be used to maintain and improve Citrus County boat ramps.

Fees/Payment Information:

• $10.00 daily fee for launching a watercraft

• $25.00 annual pass fee for a resident of Citrus County launching a watercraft (with proof of residency)

• $75.00 annual pass fee for a non-resident of Citrus County launching a watercraft

Watercraft is defined as any and all kinds of flotation vessels designated for use on the water, whether or not motorized, including, but not limited to: boats, canoes, kayaks, jet skis, Skidoos, pedal craft, pontoon boats, rafts, inflatable craft, tubes, paddleboards, or wind propelled surfboards. One license plate is permitted per pass holder.

Residency verification is required for the annual pass/subscription within 3 days of purchase.
