Pelican Isle Yacht Club celebrates 10 years of Clean Marina Program

May 29, 2015 10:05AM

Pelican Isle Yacht Club, in Naples, is celebrating 10 years of being a part of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Clean Marina Program. The club was the 94th when it first was so designated in the state. There are now 288 Clean Marinas in Florida.

The club has been commended by the DEP for its landscaping that prohibits runoff from going directly into the water, its management of waste disposal, the healthy state of its mangroves, the beauty of the marina and the literature it provides to boaters on clean boating practices.

Naples Yacht Club Boats“We all love the ocean, and doing our part to help protect and preserve it is to everyone's advantage,” says Jake Rowe, the club’s dockmaster. “We want to keep the dolphins swimming in the pass and the fish biting. We are committed to this program to preserve our eco-system.”

Location: 410 Dockside Dr., a private island near Wiggins Pass on the Cocohatchee River. For more information, call 239-566-1606, email [email protected] or visit piyc.net.
