As of March 6, 2019, the red tide in our area has been gone for several weeks. Your VCB is once again actively promoting visitation to our beaches with our VISIT FLORIDA-funded "Beach Ready" campaign.

The campaign began Feb. 28, 2019. StackAdapt, Adara, AccuWeather, paid social, and TripAdvisor will all carry the message through mid-late April 2019.

As always, visit and share OurSafeTravel.com for more resources and water quality updates.

The CCA Redfish release is scheduled to take place on Mar. 19.  Coastal Conservation Association officials will launch from Ponce Park that day at 11:00 am and will be releasing redfish into Charlotte County waters to help rehab the population of this species which was negatively affected by red tide. Read more at ccaflorida.org.
