The New Everglades National Park rules

Hi Everyone, a quick scan and I did not see it posted.... The new ENP rules are now "in-effect".  Any visitor using the park will be required to have a pass.  Driving/boating/biking/hiking, no matter the activity.  Right now the pass site is shut down due to the partial government shutdown.  You can do the National Park pass for about 80 bucks a year(if over 62?  Can get a lifetime for 80 bucks), an ENP yearly pass for 40 bucks and a weekly pass for less.  There is also now a requirement for a boaters permit, free this year, $50 a year thereafter.  It is provided by a third party vendor, unsure if I can link through SOL.  Some good info on the park as well as rules of the road etc.  This has all generated several questions.  I have a residence "inside" the park.  I mean the island we are on is surrounded by the park and paddling off the island 50 yards or so puts us in the park so we are pretty much screwed with needing a pass.  We yak a lot. So if my family of four is in my car, which my annual pass gets my car and 3 friends plus myself into the park, with four yaks on the roof and we launch, do we all now need a pass for the park since we are not together in one vehicle?  I am assuming my park pass will cover my skiff and those in it but we have not heard any clear cut rules yet.  Just wanted to put this out there.  Entering the park form the EC, Flamingo or the Keys will require a ENP pass and boaters permit if using the water.
