Join CCSO For 8th Annual Keewaydin Cleanup

Spend a day at the beach with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 10.

That’s when the CCSO Marine Bureau will hold its 8th annual Keewaydin Cleanup. The public is invited to help pick up trash on Keewaydin Island, a barrier island located between Naples and Marco Island.

Transportation to the island will be provided by the sailing vessels Sweet Liberty and Calusa Spirit.

Sweet Liberty will depart from Naples City Dock and Calusa Spirit will leave from Pelican Bend Restaurant on Isles of Capri. Both vessels will depart at 8:30 a.m. and return from the island around 12:30 p.m.

Participants will enjoy this pristine stretch of coastline while doing their part to keep it clean.

Seats are limited to 35 people aboard each vessel. To reserve a spot, please send an e-mail to and include the name, telephone number and e-mail of each participant and which location you would like to depart from.

Bottled water will be provided, but please bring your own sunscreen.
