The Gulf of Mexico, with its picturesque shores and inviting waters, draws thousands of boaters each year for a variety of boating activities, from leisurely cruises to fishing excursions. However, amid the beauty of the Gulf, boating accidents shatter the tranquility all too often, resulting in serious injuries and, tragically, even fatalities.
The U.S. Coast Guard’s recent data revealed a national decrease in boating fatalities from 2021 to 2022, but the Gulf Shores region remains susceptible to such incidents. In 2022, there were a staggering 636 boating fatalities nationwide, while property damage from boating accidents amounted to $63 million.
