Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary has added A Fishing Guide of Islamorada, Flying Fish Charters of Key West, and Sail Fish Scuba of Key Largo, Florida, as the newest participants in its Blue Star program.

Blue Star operators are committed to responsible tourism and take the extra step to educate their customers about the South Florida ecosystem, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and responsible fishing and diving practices.

More information, including a list of sanctuary-recognized charter operators, is at sanctuarybluestar.org or by email to [email protected] or [email protected]
