Once colonized these Mini Reef’s provide water filtration by the oysters making the water healthier with higher oxygen content.  They have a 10-15-year lifespan with minimal maintenance such as possibly changing the attachment ropes.  Most of the materials are recyclable.  June 2019 a Grant was awarded by FWC Red Tide Mitigation Technical Development Initiative.  They are available from the Center for $350.00.

    GREETINGS FROM THE PARADISE BAY DOCKMASTER

    Well, it is summertime at Paradise Bay and the fun is just getting started.

    The best excitement so far.... Jim Gath in his kayak, single handed rescued and towed a 22 ft. “Trophy” boat to safety at the dock while 4 Paradise Bay Boaters cheered him on. Good job Jim!!

    The Paradise Bay main boat ramp at 5 th street is scheduled to start work soon.

    I will post the schedule as we get closer to the construction date. If you need your boat in or out of the water during the down time on the ramp the North Coquina Beach Ramp is very accessible.

    Do not use the Paradise Bay gravel ramp at 103 rd St Ct.

    If you choose to use The Paradise Bay Ramp at 106 th St, be advised, it is in terrible condition with a 2

    February has been a busy month, thanks to Mark and Gail Noren who oversaw the busy and successful Coast Guard Auxiliary boat safety inspections.  Rick Plite led 9 vessels on a journey, he reported:      As far as the boat trip we had a fun trip with 9 boats exploring Palma Sola Bay and a couple canals. Then we watched the rocket launch from Palma Sola Bay and continued to the end of Anna Maria Island. We went through the passage and around the Bimini Bay Area and returned on the west side of the bay by the Billfish boat launch and back to the park. Seems like the trip was enjoyed by all who participated.  A second trip will be on Feb 24, with wind and weather dictating if we go south or north.

Greetings from the Paradise Bay Dockmaster

dockmasterTo those of you I have not met yet, let me introduce myself. My name is Scotty Yates, I am a full-time resident of Paradise Bay Estates for over six years. I am honored to have been asked to be the Dockmaster for Paradise Bay Estates.

We are making great strides in improving the quality of boating in Paradise Bay Estates, especially the security of docks, boat storage lot & the “Million Dollar Lot.”

We have new security cameras, a new fence surrounding the perimeter of the boat yard & new gates
The “Million Dollar Lot” now has a fence that defines Paradise Bay Property and most importantly we now have a new professional Security Patrol Team.

Shareholders, Renters & Guests are required to place Paradise Bay stickers or Day Passes on vehicles, boat trailers & boats. With the proper Paradise Bay stickers our new Security Team can control unauthorized & unidentified vehicles parked on park property which will be towed at owner’s expense.

At the time of this letter we have over 70 people on the dock waitlist. When signing up for the docklist you must read the Dock Rules & Regulations to make sure you qualify.  Shareholders that have docks are required to use the docks under our Rules & Regulations.

Complete detailed Rules & Regulations (pdf)

Paper copies of the 'Dock Rules'  are also available at the Paradise Bay Estates Office.

Thank you, and looking forward to meeting all the boaters in the near future.
