Good Citizenship Guide:

Keep your trash out of the splash (and off the islands). Please stow it on your boat and take it with you when you go. Leave only your footprints.

Please don't leave footprints in the interior sand dunes and areas enclosed by fencing. Those are important nesting spots for blue herons and others, and we don't want to disturb them.

Please obey no-motor and no-wake zones and idle or raise your motor when navigating shallow waters. Take special care in seagrass beds, which serve as habitats for many beloved creatures, such as shrimp, crabs, frish, birds, manatees, and sea turtles. Please avoid damaging these habitats!

Have a good time, boat responsibly, respect each other and respect our islands.
