    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.  

    Looking ahead the March 1 meeting will
