Welcome To
The Florida Harbor Pilots Association

The Florida Harbor Pilots Association is comprised of nearly 100 highly-skilled and highly-trained harbor pilots that serve each of Florida’s 14 deepwater ports.

In addition to ensuring the safe navigation of these vessels, harbor pilots know the intricate details and local conditions of the waterways and channels that surround Florida’s ports and are often called upon by Florida’s port authorities to assist with the planning of new seaport development and new ship operations.
