BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Boating is big business in Southwest Florida, and it’s one way we get to enjoy our area.

One local business wants you to keep going out on the water, but they want you to do it while Protecting Paradise.

Adam Botana is the Vice President of Bay Waters Exclusive Boating Club and Rentals in Bonita Springs.

He says his team wants to educate boaters from all over about our environment, and how proper boating can contribute to keeping marine life safe for years to come.

That’s why they’re offering free boat tours. That’s right: free.

You can head out on the water with a member of the team to learn how anything from improper anchoring to prop-scarring can hurt impact some of the fish that you love to eat - including grouper and snapper.

If you’d like to take advantage of a free boat tour, sign up! They occur every Friday at 9am. You can visit https://baywaterboatrentals.com/ .
