Clearwater’s Most Popular Water Experiences

Clearwater is a perfect spot for a boat rental. There’s year-round sun here; thus, there's always something to do and to check out. Here are just three of the many things for you to get up to in a Clearwater boat rental.

Watch the Sun Slip over the Horizon
You really cannot beat Floridian sunsets. All that open sea between you and the Gulf of Mexico creates a fluttering of fiery red colors that lights up the waves ahead of you. Head to the west side of the Clearwater Beach Islands for the best ones.

Learn to Sail
All boat lovers should be able to sail or at least try to learn how to. It’s the basics of boating and has been a technique for thousands of years. Clearwater is the perfect place to learn due to there being an open sea with strong winds and inlets to help you find your feet.

Island Hop Through Nature
The small islands dotted around Clearwater are humming with life. Take your Clearwater boat rental around these tiny islands to spectate, photograph, and walk around these beautiful pieces of nature by the city.

Clearwater’s Best Bodies of Water for Boating

Go Onwards to the Gulf of Mexico

Beyond the harbor lies the open sea. Head out this way if you want to feel some proper wind between your sails as you hone in on your sailing skills. Likewise, if you're going to go for some deepsea fishing, then this is the direction that you want to be heading.

Hop off at Honeymoon Island

If you want to find yourself in a secluded paradise then the waters around Honeymoon Island are where you should take your Clearwater boat rental. Here there are over 4 miles of beach, eagles, and ospreys for you to photograph as well as fishing - what a paradise.

Float around Caladesi Island

Only accessible from a Clearwater boat rental, this is quite the place to swing by. Guide your boat through the waterside mangrove forests or park up and take a gentle stroll through the sands in this haven.
