Port St. Lucie Lifts Boat Ramp Restrictions

Kitterman Woods Residents after weeks of waiting, you can get back out on the water. The boat ramps re-opened Friday, allowing us to get back on the water and take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.

Social distancing guidelines are still in place and as you charter the waters you should still practice social distancing.

Here are a few recommendations:

  • Limit the number of people aboard to those family members you share your home with.
  • Keep your distance from other groups.
  • Maintain a safe distance from others when doing things like loading up at the dock or fueling the boat.
  • After doing anything that requires touching an item someone else may have touched, like a fuel pump, disinfect by washing your hands or using a hand sanitizer as soon as possible.

The city wants to remind boaters of executive order No. 20-09, directed by the Florida Fish and Wildfire Conservation Commission. Under the executive order, all recreational boats must be at least 50 feet apart and there cannot be more than 10 people on board.
