The Tampa Bay area is a haven for fisherman and draws outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. Tampa Bay is the largest estuary in Florida with 400 square miles of flats and mangroves teeming with redfish, trout, snook, flounder, snapper, mackerel, tarpon, cobia and other species. In the gulf, grouper and other large species abound. Fishing off some of the worlds best rated beaches, numerous piers, kayak or by boat is a year-round experience with the area's mild winters. However, there is much more than fishing for the outdoor enthusiast. 

Pleasure boating is huge with the clear water and numerous sandbars and islands to drop anchor for the day. Sightseeing from the water is amazing here with the countless dolphins and the gentle giant manatees. Many take to the water during the annual Gasparilla festivities to be a part of the pirate flotilla. The area is also one of the top sailing locations in the U.S. Several clubs in the area have routine sailboat races that even non members, or those with little to no sailing experience, can participate in. You don't have to be a boat owner to enjoy the sport because the area offers hundreds of charters for both bay and gulf adventures. 

 The area also offers excellent spearfishing in the gulf, and scalloping in the shallows grass beds. It is truly a fisherman's paradise! But if you must own a boat and you would like to have it docked in the backyard, there are many opportunities to buy waterfront properties in Tampa Bay. Prices are relatively affordable compared to other areas in the U.S. even though Tampa Bay is a favorite of many for main and second homeowners.For instance, you can have a 2,000 sq.ft. home on over a third of an acre right in St. Petersburg. Check out: 397 Pompano Drive SE, St. Petersburg, FL 33705 with asking price of just $575k. Over 75 foot of water frontage and less than 3 mins from the Gulf by boat!
