Passage Key Is a Boat Ride Away, Near Anna Maria Island

Published on 10/11/20: Want to pretend you are on a Caribbean Island for the day? Great news for St Pete residents is that we can, via simply a 30-minute boat ride to Passage Key!

This beautiful view is located just south of us on a island called Passage Key. One of our favorite spots to boat, especially during the week if possible! Weekends can get a bit crowded, though not too bad. We would like to keep it that way, thus this post early on in the life of ‘Loving St Pete’, before we have more followers. Only joking.

We’ve seen all sorts of marine life in the clear waters, truly phenomenal! I should add, be prepared to see the occasional sunbather in *very* limited clothing (we park/move to avoid when our son is with us). Such a beautiful spot! Note that feet must stay wet at Passage Key, per the rules. In our case below, water was definitely lapping up to our feet, though in hindsight, we should have pulled our chairs out slightly deeper.

Address: Off the coast between Anna Maria Island and Egmont Key

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
