St. Petersburg’s Most Popular Experiences

St. Pete Beach is the perfect place for a boat rental. There's a fair bit to see when you’re walking around St Petersburg, but the real action is on the water.

Enjoy the Beach Life
The beaches in St Petersburg are truly world-class. Dock up your St Petersburg boat rental at some of the various superb beaches, such as Bahia Beach where you can take some time to lie back and soak up the Floridian rays.

Get your Fishing Gear Together
When it comes to fishing just outside big urban areas, it's normally not the best spot. In the water around St Petersburg however, there is a great range of marine reserve areas that are quiet and have an abundance of fish.

Have your Camera at the Ready
There are loads of great wildlife to take note of and photograph in the nature preserves that are dotted around here. Seabirds, eagles, and various fauna that roam by the waterside.

St. Petersburg’s Best Bodies of Water for Boating

Sail to Shell Key

Shell Key is a tiny archipelago on the entrance into Tampa Bay. It offers some solitude from the city and busier waters. This nature reserve is a hotspot for nesting birds for you to photograph from a distance, and it is also excellent for fishing.

Take a Tour of Terra Ceia

On the opposite side of the water from St Petersburg lies Terra Ceia Preserve State Park. This is a 2,000-acre site of wetlands and mangrove forests. It’s a truly enchanting place for you to take your St Petersburg boat rental as you gently glide through the marshy waters.

Whistle through Weedon Island

At the north end on St Petersburg is Weedon Island, formed of an amphibious and elevated ecosystem. When you take your St Petersburg boat rental here you can examine the relatively unique botany and fauna at a close range.
