Florida Tips

The Florida sun is intense, so always wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor containing a high rating, reapply frequently and drink plenty of water.

Never swim alone. Stay within a designated swimming area.

Please use caution and consider that the Gulf and undeveloped areas along the coast are natural habitats for many forms of marine wildlife. Direct contact with area wildlife is not recommended.
