Being out on Gulf waters is akin to the feeling of love at first sight—a mix of euphoria and mystery. As sails unfurl and the land fades away, the sense of adventure is palpable. Waves sound against the hull, keeping time with the sea. Pelicans and gulls soar near the clouds and salt spray cools the skin. The world is suddenly full of possibility.
Sunset is nature's show-stopping finale as a thousand shades of amber streak the sky. Fiery colors blend with the deepening indigo of Gulf waters. Whether you’re out on a boat or watching along our 35 miles of sugar-sand beaches, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. The experience is extraordinary, unforgettable.
Glorious sunshine, sparkling Gulf waters, beautiful sands and new friends: this is what "island hanging" is all about. Rent a boat or bring your own for a perfect island-style day in St. Pete/Clearwater.
My escape is just to get in a boat and disappear on the water.
