Regatta Pointe Marina is dedicated to protecting the environment and our valuable waterways. We follow the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Clean Marina Best Management Practices and encourage all of our guests and customers to take the Florida Clean Boater Pledge as well as familiarizing themselves with Clean Boating Habits Booklets.
The Florida Clean Marina Program is a voluntary designation program with a proactive approach to environmental stewardship. Participants receive assistance in implementing Best Management Practices through on-site and distance technical assistance, mentoring by other Clean Marinas and continuing education. To become designated as a Clean Marina, facilities must implement a set of environmental measures designed to protect Florida's waterways. These measures address critical environmental issues such as sensitive habitat, waste management, storm water control, spill prevention and emergency preparedness. Designated facilities and those facilities seeking designation receive ongoing technical support from the Florida Clean Marina Program and the Clean Boating Partnership.
The Florida Clean Boater Program encourages boaters to use Florida's Clean Marinas, Boatyards & Marine Retailers. Boaters are also encouraged to safeguard the state's waterways by adopting environmentally friendly practices such as proper trash management, using bilge socks and fueling collars as well as practicing recycling habits.
The Clean Vessel Act (CVA) is a federally funded grant program administered by the Florida Clean Marina Program for the construction of pump out facilities and pump out vessels at marina and boatyard sites. The CVA program supports educational and public awareness programs on the importance and practice of keeping raw sewage out of Florida's waterways.
Clean boater resources are available at our Ships Store.
