Boating Tampa Bay and Gulf

Boating Tampa Bay and Gulf

Boating around the Tampa Bay Area is a favorite past time of many in the area. There are things to do around the area via boat. Scroll down for some options or you can go to my LovingStPete main page for easier filtering of activities. Whether we’re talking kid’s activities, date night, or anything in between, I’ve got you covered! Downtown St Pete now has quite a few boat slips for dockage. You can dock near Fresco’s Waterfront Bistro, utilize the new slips at the huge pier, or use a slip at the Vinoy if you’re a member or reserve and pay for one. That’s of course just downtown St Pete. There are many options around the tip of Pinellas and on out to the Gulf area. Then there’s boating across Tampa Bay to the Tampa Riverwalk area. So many boating options!

I’m Mike Braswell and I started Loving St Pete on social media to serve as a guide to the Tampa Bay Area. It’s now followed by over 15 thousand people! I’m a Realtor in the Tampa Bay Area with a focus on waterfront and beachfront property. I love the industry so much I even founded a vacation rental advertising business that I ran for a decade before HomeAway/VRBO acquired. I’d love if you contacted me so I can earn your business!
