Tampa’s Most Popular Experiences

You’ll probably be spending most of your time sunbathing or trying out some water sports from your boat. Here are three other popular places to visit while exploring the emerald waters around Tampa.

Lands End Marina
Lands End Marina is a modern gathering area featuring fine dining and tiki bars at Circles Waterfront. Some of the menu items include fried calamari, coconut shrimp, and crab cakes, and you generally get incredible service.

Fish for Snapper
You’ll quickly discover that Tampa Bay and the surrounding offshore water is full of shipwrecks. This makes it an incredible place for fishing on your Tampa boat rental, especially for Mangrove snapper.

See the Pirate Ship of Jose Gasparilla
Captain Jose Gaspar, or “Gasparilla,” once roamed and plundered the Tampa Bay area. Every January, the legendary pirate appears, and thousands of boaters mark his return to the city. His pirate ship sails into the bay, full of boat patrons celebrating with drinks, party beads, and pirate attire.

Tampa’s Best Bodies of Water

Visit Pine Key

Sail your Tampa boat rental to Pine Key, also known as Beer Can Island. This is the perfect place to anchor your boat and have a fun weekend of swimming, camping, hiking, and even some deep-sea fishing. Although it is close to Tampa, very few tourists visit the island.

Visit Egmont Key Wildlife Refuge

Take your Tampa boat rental to the mouth of Tampa Bay, where Egmont Key Wildlife Refuge protects endangered or threatened animals like gulls, hawks, eagles, gopher tortoises, and box turtles. Look out for hummingbirds in the Shore Bird Refuge at the south end of the island, and visit the lighthouse that has stood since 1858.

Sail under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge

The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge stretches across Hillsborough County waters between the town of St. Petersburg and Terra Cerra in Manatee County. Get a great view of the bridge from your Tampa boat rental in the Gulf of Mexico on the west side or from the Tampa Bay on the east side.
