Area Spotlight - Clearwater, FL

Clearwater Municipal Marina on Clearwater Beach is a hub of activity with its slips for transient boaters and conveniences such as stores, restaurant and bait shop. Transient dockage is also available in downtown Clearwater at Coachman Park.

Visitors can choose their favorite boating experience: jet skiing, sailing, parasailing, speedboating, fishing boat tours, hands-on marine life adventures, to dining and dancing. Sail away on a three masted schooner, take an exhilirating ride on one of the world's largest speedboats, cruise on a priate ship, look for dolphins on one of the many cruises or kayak through bay islands looking for herons and other wildlife.

Clearwater is home to the Clearwater Yacht Club featuring a full calendar of events including regattas and slips to dock your boat along with the usual yacht club amenities.

Did you know that the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa bay abound with more than 300 varieties of fish including tarpon, grouper, snapper, trout, snook, red fish, kingfish, shark, sailfish and mackerel?

Fishing enthusiasts can cast their lines from Pier 60 in Clearwater Beach. Here you can find bait and all the fishing equipment, snacks and beverages you need to reel in "the big one."
