Clean Boating/Marina Program

The Clean Boating Partnership, a public/private effort, is a liaison between the State of Florida and the marine industry.  With thousands of marine facilities and 1,000,000 registered vessels in Florida, environmental education within the boating community is crucial to safeguarding the state's natural resources.  The Partnership has developed four specific programs to encourage environmentally-friendly practices, beyond regulatory requirements, in and around Florida's waterways.
