Boating In Tampa Bay FL
To all the waterfront homeowners who live in the Tampa Bay area, fyi the Tampa Boat Show is this weekend, Sept 6-8. I purchased my own boat from the Tampa Boat Show years ago, and enjoyed countless hours on the water. One of my favorites is jetting down the intracoastal in Pinellas County and seeing the aqua blue water as we head down to Sarasota for a day of island hopping and hanging with friends!
For those of you who like hanging out on larger boats, living in communities such as Harbour Island, Davis island, West Shore Yacht Club and Apollo Beach gives you the opportunity to keep your large boat right in your backyard. There is nothing better than walking out your backdoor, hopping on the boat with friends, and cruising to one of the many cool hangouts in the Tampa Bay area.
Every person I have ever sold a home to on the water here in Tampa absolutely loves it! Then I send them to the local boat shows... such as the Tampa Boat Show at the Tampa Convention Center where they can even test drive the boat of their choice. They have every kind of boat you can imagine with options you sometimes only see in fine homes!
For those of you that own a boat already, Beer Can island, a popular island weekend spot, is only minutes by boat from Apollo Beach and a quick trip from Downtown Tampa. If you want to troll around in really gorgeous water, start at Fort Desoto in St Pete and head south... absolutely breathtaking!
If you miss the Tampa boat show this weekend, don't worry... there will always be another one. Until then find a friend with a boat, but don't forget to be courteous and offer your buddy some gas money... because filling up a 300 gallon tank of gas is not cheap :)
