Take it Easy on the Water
Can it get any hotter? Yes. It can. Fortunately, Florida residents and visitors can stay cool, stay green and take it easy this summer in one of Florida’s many cool locations.
The Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico are favorite Take it Easy choices on hot summer days. Florida’s one million registered boats provide one million opportunities for boaters to protect water quality and the quality of our aquatic lifestyle, both at the dock and on the water. Bring trash and recyclables back to the dock for proper disposal. Choose designated Clean Marinas, Boatyards and Retailers for boating needs to support more than 250 businesses statewide that implement practices that help keep our waterways clean and healthy. When planning your cruises, don’t forget to locate pumpout facilities along your route.
For those who prefer motorless transportation to cool clean fun, a multitude of paddling trails—including the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail and the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail—provide excellent “Take it Easy” venues. No matter where your outing takes you, bring trash and recyclables back to shore for proper disposal. Whether you prefer saltwater or fresh water adventures, paddle on. Canoes and kayaks are powered by human energy, a renewable resource.
