Personal watercraft manufacturers, national recreation access organizations, South Florida business owners and a group of Miami residents and boating enthusiasts gathered at a mid-August press conference to announce the formation of a new coalition campaigning to reintroduce PWC to Biscayne National Park.

The coalition announced it would file a formal petition with the U.S. Department of the Interior in an effort to jumpstart the process of opening the park.

Biscayne National Park, in Miami south of Key Biscayne and north of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, banned personal watercraft use in 1998, saying PWC adversely affect the park’s environment. www.boatbiscayne.com
