They test the waters all the time. If the red tide is present they do warn people. The local that I'm in contact with tells me the red tide is gone. Also the testing confirms that.

The ride tide never truly left. Watch the news and do your research before going! I live 8 miles from Bonita Beach and don't go. I won't go to any of the beaches in Florida again. I have researched enough to know that even when the red tide is gone the water is still not clean.

I was in Fort Myers a month back. It smelled awful. Did not go in the water at all.

As of right now the chances of finding a clean beach anywhere in Florida are slim to none. The red tide is STILL here, it never went away. Advertising will try to fool you or convince you it has but it hasn't. They just want to recoup the million they have lost in tourism due to the toxic water here. Not only do we have red tide but we also have flesh eating bacteria! The water is also full of round up and oil and goodness only knows what else. I live 8 miles from the beach and we do not go! The last time we went I was deathly ill for 2 weeks! As for the ponds, canals and lakes they are full of blue green algae. Which in my opinion is just as bad as red tide if not worse. Florida is not the only state having these problems. Man kind has destroyed what God gave us and we are now suffering the consequences. Good luck finding clean water. Research before you go! Knowledge is power and just might save your life!
