Sellers said the concept was a good one if for no other reason than showing off Port St. Joe and Gulf County.

Jenkins agreed that such cruise lines would enhance visitor experiences, expose the area to those who might consider a trip to Gulf County in the future and said there were many pluses, though her job performance hinges on bed tax revenue.

Bryan said she supported any partnerships and that it was necessary in a small rural area for folks to work together.

Jones suggested establishing a committee that would help identify potential clients for such cruises, how the community could accommodate the smaller cruises and the demographics of those who enjoy such cruises.

Port St. Joe resident Bill Koran emphasized that the Port Authority should be examining ways to use the low docks, which he said were a potential $10 million asset.
