1. The City of Live Oak requires approved life jackets (PDF's) be worn at all times by anyone in a watercraft.

2.  There are no vehicles allowed off the roadway, and portage of all watercraft must be accomplished by walking.

3.  Consuming or possessing of alcoholic beverages while engaging in boating is prohibited.

4.  The use of personal watercraft is limited to daylight hours only.
