    just answered my own question...

    Under Florida State Statute 311.12 (7) Seaport security standards; inspections; compliance; appeals. -- Any person who has in his or her possession a concealed weapon, or who operates or has possession or control of a vehicle in or upon which a concealed weapon is placed or stored, while in a designated restricted area on seaport property commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. This subsection does not apply to active-duty certified federal or state law enforcement personnel, or persons so designated by the seaport director in writing.

    July 1, 2006 Florida passed a NEW Seaport Security Law, within this law there are several changes. One change regards the possession of weapons on Seaports. The changes in the make it unlawful to:

    Possess a weapon on a seaport
    Keep a weapon in your vehicle on a seaport.
    Weapons (to include firearms)

    Concealed knives
    Brass knuckles
    Slung shot
    Billie clubs
    Tear gas
    Chemical weapon or device
    Any other items used for the purpose of causing death or injury to another
    Persons exempt from this law:

    Active-duty certified federal or state law enforcement personnel OR persons so designated by the seaport director in writing.

    Persons requesting for an exemption to this law must do so in writing to the Port Director. These requests must include a copy of your State of Florida Concealed Weapons / Firearms permit and written explanation from your employer indicating a legitimate need for you to posses a weapon as a part of your employment on the seaport.

    Sounds like you already know the answer. But , best to ask a lawyer than people on the internet.

    If you're in a bind try locking it up at a storage facility. Some have the smaller lockers.

    Worked for me taking a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. Not sure of legalities but good luck.
