We’ve seen reports that show traces of red tide in the St Petersburg area. One of the main spots for kiteboarding is the Skyway Bridge. We will continue to report back here with our experiences being on the water at the Skyway Bridge.
*** We are not scientists and we do not have a kit to test the water. We are simply reporting if there are any dead fish, if there is a scent and if we experience any respiratory issues while on the water. Even though we do not see any dead fish, smell anything or experience respiratory issues doesn’t mean red tide isn’t there.
We’ve been out on the water this week and haven’t seen or smelled any dead fish. Hoping the predominant east winds continue to keep the red tide out in the gulf and away from the beaches.
Dead fish along St Pete Beach. Skyway Bridge still not showing signs of Red Tide.
As of 11:00 am, there were no signs of red tide at the Skyway Bridge in St Petersburg. This means we did not see any dead fish, no smells and no respiratory issues.
