Punta Gorda Isles Neighborhood Marine Watch   

A Different Kind of Volunteer Group  

 

The Punta Gorda Isles Neighborhood Marine Watch program is up and running with 60 volunteer residents participating in on-the-water/land surveillance patrols.

  • Patrols are for a minimum of 2 hours, each month.
  • Patrol times will mostly be night patrol and/or early morning.
  • Upon approval of your application, each NMW volunteer member will be given an ID card and a map that identifies adjacent streets to each canal and a copy of the NMW Program On-the-water Conduct and Procedures”.
  • Each boat on patrol will be provided signage that identifies it as a “Neighborhood Marine Watch Patrol” boat.
  • In most cases each member will be on patrol only once a month.
  • Marine Watch volunteers will use their own boats for these patrols.
  • Assigned patrol areas will coincide with the location of each member’s home dock.

If you are interested in volunteering your time and boat for a couple hours each month to this worthwhile program, contact Bill Guenther - Neighborhood Marine Watch program coordinator, cell phone 941-661-9702 or email radioman3029@comcast.net
