The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, together with the Clean Boating Partnership, recently named Pensacola’s Harbor View Marine a Clean Marina.

The voluntary state initiative recognizes marinas and boatyards for their commitment to the protection of the state’s waterways and natural resources.

To become a designated member of the Florida Clean Marina program, facilities must implement a set of environmental measures that address matters such as sensitive habitats, waste management, stormwater control, spill prevention and emergency preparedness.

“We are proud to become one of Florida’s Clean Marinas. Our goal is to help protect the environment so future generations can enjoy the boating lifestyle that we enjoy today,” marina owner Darrel Robinson said in a statement.
