Red Tide

We are headed to Clearwater beach in mid September. I know the Red Tide is impossible to predict, but if it seems like it will probably be an issue I would rather just make different plans. Does it seem likely the Red Tide will be an issue or is it unlikely?

There is no way to predict duration, severity or location of the algal bloom. Follow the daily reports from Mote Marine Lab: visitbeaches.org

Check the cancellation policies of your lodging. Have another location as a back up. See if you are still able to purchase trip cancellation/interruption insurance.

If you are on Facebook there is a group that is active in trying to get changes made. They post pictures daily. They focus on the area near Venice.
