No oil on the Calusa Blueway

June 17, 2010

Southwest Florida’s waterways pristine along the Gulf

Kayaking and canoeing is lovely here along the Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail. Our Gulf waters are blue, the estuaries teem with life and bird sightings abound. Kayak anglers are reporting hot fishing – and they’re not talking about the mercury.

To keep you updated on the status of our beaches and waterways, the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau has created a special page on its Web site that is updated daily:

Also, if you are a local or a visiting tourist and you snap a good photo, the visitor bureau is collecting images of our gorgeous untouched-by-oil beaches, waterfront and waterways. As you’re out and about, please take photos on your phone or a camera and send to staffer Katie Meckley at “We can use as many photos as Lee County residents and visitors can send,” Katie says.

Happy paddling!
