Southwest Florida Hosts...how are you holding up?

With this red tide bloom we have lost a few reservations for this month and have only 4 days reserved for the entire month of August. That is something that has never happened to us in the almost 4 years of hosting. We are usually never below 20 days booked for a month. Overall Sarasota hotel occupancy is down 75% with the beaches littered with dead fish, horrible smells and brown/red water that is normally a beautiful blue/green.

 

Has anyone else in the area seen the same drop off in bookings because of the red tide?

We are in st pete beach and have had very few bookings. We have a guest due to arrive in October and he has contacted me today with worry over the red tide
