If you have decided to rent a yacht in Tampa, you'll probably be spending most of your time sunbathing or enjoying some water sports from your boat. Here are three very popular things to do while exploring the emerald waters of Tampa.
Captain Jose Gaspar, or "Gasparilla," once plundered the Tampa area as a pirate. Every January, the legendary pirate appears, and thousands of boaters mark his return to the city. His pirate ship sails into Tampa Bay, which is usually full of boat partiers who are celebrating with drinks, party beads, and pirate attire.
The modern gathering area of Lands End Marina offers fine dining and tiki bars in the Circles Waterfront section. Dock your yacht and try out some seafood options. Some of the menu items include fried calamari, coconut shrimp, and crab cakes, and you also get very attentive service.
You'll quickly discover that Tampa Bay and the surrounding offshore water is full of numerous shipwrecks of all kinds. This makes it a good place for fishing and diving from your Tampa yacht rental. The underwater scenery is nothing short of spectacular around these wrecks.
Although there are so many attractive bodies of water for boating around Tampa, here are three of the very best ones.
The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge stretches across Hillsborough County waters between St. Petersburg and Terra Cerra. Guide your Tampa yacht rental below the tall bridge from the Gulf of Mexico on the west side, or approach the bridge from Tampa Bay on the east side.
Although it is close to Tampa, very few tourists visit this island. Sail your Tampa yacht charter to Pine Key, where you can easily anchor your boat offshore and do some deep-sea fishing in the evening. Swim around the island and enjoy the warm, clear waters.
Sail your Tampa yacht charter to the mouth of Tampa Bay, where you will find Egmont Key Wildlife Refuge. This is home to endangered birds like gulls, hawks, and ospreys. Keep your eyes out for where the birds are circling above the water because that usually means there are some impressive fish in the area.
With all of the spectacular natural and manmade features in the area, yachting in Tampa can be an unforgettable experience. Here are three kinds of yachts that you can try out in Tampa.
Private yacht charters can be great ways to entertain friends, colleagues, or other associates. Whether you get a bareboat charter or if you decide to hire a captain, you can plan to cruise all the way up and down the coast while enjoying the fresh air on your Tampa yacht rental.Rent a Charter Yacht
Megayachts are extremely big and there is so much space on the boat. These are the types of yachts you might think of when you picture the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Now you can experience all of the fun of being out at sea on a megayacht.Rent a Mega Yacht
A party yacht can be quite similar to a megayacht, but not always as luxurious. Even though these boats are a little smaller, the parties can still be great fun when you gather the right kind of crowd on your yacht. A party yacht is ideal for birthdays, bachelorette parties, weddings, or graduation parties.Rent a Party Yacht
We all enjoyed our time on Ben's Mastercraft. Ben (and his sons) were very helpful in getting the boat ready for us and we basically had the lake to ourselves (it was a Monday). The slalom course added another layer of fun to the day. We look forward to spending another day on Ben's boat in the future.
