WELCOME TO THE

Pensacola Beach Chamber

For more than 30 years the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce has been a leading voice for business on Santa Rosa Island.  Our membership of 200+ businesses is diverse and representative of our community.   Governed by a Board of Directors of local business leaders, we represent a variety of industries, business size and geographic locations, not restricted to beach-bound locations.  Advocacy is the cornerstone of our Chamber and is why we are growing in our role of influence. The Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce is a strong proponent of local economic growth and serves as a platform through which our members and the community can thrive. The PBCC is a voluntary partnership of business and professional people, working in unison to create a healthy economy and improve the quality of life for individuals on Pensacola Beach. The Chamber exists to strengthen, enhance and encourage the prosperity of existing business and the development of new ones.  As your Chamber strives to accomplish these goals, it plays many roles: economic developer, tourist information center, business spokesperson, economic counselor and public relations practitioner. HOW CAN WE HELP YOU THRIVE THIS YEAR?

Pensacola Beach Lifeguards

Did You Know?
*Our Pensacola Beach Lifeguards work from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm and man the towers from 10 am to 6pm daily with a 1-hour break. They are required to have 80 hours of training with 40 of it being medical and the other 40 being tactical. They change the flags at 10 am everyday and change them to yellow at the end of their day, 6 pm. Unless of course it was red, and they will leave it that way overnight. They also update the website to correspond.
* When it is sunny, good surf, and/or a holiday they know it will be a busy day on the beach. At their peak, they have roughly about 75 lifeguards and man 7 towers on Pensacola Beach. The towers include one on Quietwater, and the rest scattered from the East dog park (near Fort Pickens) to the West dog park (near Portofino).
Virtual mile markers are used to locate you in an emergency when you call 911.
These invisible mile markers stretch about 21 miles Perdido to Navarre.
So please call 911 for any emergencies and not their direct number so it can be traced to the nearest “virtual mile marker” for them to find and assist you faster!
