Water Connections

If you believe water 'connects' people and places versus 'divides,' then today’s show is just for you.

Speaking of places, we learned today that golf tourism is the new hot market for the Islands of the Bahamas and about the new Florida Bahamas Golf Challenge currently in the planning stages. Island friend and Bahamas Tourist Office general manager Earl Miller gave more highlights on the challenge, what his country's goverment is doing doing about the current over 35 foot/under 35 foot boat entry fees, what new marinas have opened, and which marina's have improved or added more slips to their facilities.

With the winter season just around the corner, Treasure Coast marinas are looking forward to welcoming back our valued seasonal boaters. The approaching second annual Cruiser Expo, part of the Stuart Boat Show produced by Allsports Productions, is an event that no boater, or water lover, should miss. The three-day event provides networking opportunities and scores of informative seminars. Proper dingy dock etiquette? What's that? How many transient vessels do you think traverse and visit Treasure Coast waters each winter? Listen to this week's show. The abswer to the questions just might surprise you.

As always, thanks for visiting the blog and listening to this week’s show. If you know a friend or a family member who is interested in tourism and events on the Treasure Coast, share the Talkin' Tourism show link with them. Help us spread the message that tourism helps keep Florida green.

The audio for this week's show can be listened to HERE. 'See' you next week!
