Clearwater Florida is an Amazing Place to Visit

Clearwater Beach was rated the #1 Beach several years in a row, and we know first hand why this is.  The Clearwater area is also home to other beautiful and natural island destinations.  The area has amazing boating and not just flashy tourist stops, but beautiful ecotourism! Here are some of the many perks of traveling to and boating in Clearwater Florida!

Clearwater Beach the 1# Beach period, “why” you ask, there are clear reasons why and also our personal experience that weighs in here.   First and foremost the actual beach has a long pristine white sand beach that is wide with plenty of real estate to put down your chairs and blanket.   The beach is patrolled by LifeGuards during core hours, ane is cleaned and combed regularly.   There is an amazing walking path that borders the main beach with access to showers and restrooms and connects to the parking lots, it’s fun to walk, bike, skate and scoot on to see all the people!   There are also many walkable amenities from the beach and the many local hotels such as convenience stores, surf shops, ice cream shops, restaurants and boat tours!  Last, but not least is the obvious fact that the water is super swimmable, yes it’s warm and the beautiful clear green color of the Gulf of Mexico! The sand, water and attractions all combined make Clearwater Beach #1.

To truly see the beauty of the Clearwater area, it’s best viewed via a private Clearwater boat tour!  At A Boat Day we tailor each boat trip to the customer’s desires and we have seven well maintained rental boats in Clearwater, Dunedin and Indian Rocks Beach for you to pick from.  We have both awesome FUNship Slide Boats and Speed Boats.  Whether you want to see dolphins and wildlife, tour celebrity homes with your family, or get the full party boat experience, we can make that happen.  Now on to some Clearwater area islands….

  • The most famous of all the barrier islands along our coast is Clearwater Beach Island, formerly known as Tate’s Island and 3 miles long. Clearwater Beach became a tourist destination and hosts famous celebrity houses.    It has a natural side too and connects to the next island…
  • Caladesi Island once was separate from Clearwater Beach Island but now they connect at the very far North end (too far to walk too).  Caladesi Island is actually a protected state park with 4 miles of pristine beach, sand dunes, grasses and estuarial mangroves! There is a small snack bar, restroom, showers and a few paths.  We boat to both the bay and beach side of Caladesi island, for a true getaway.
  • Honeymoon island is our next stop north.   This 4 mile island is also a state park and is accessible via car for a fee, it is popular with the locals.   When we boat to Honeymoon we go to the very North virgin side where there are no tourists and very few locals!   A great ecotourism spot with lots of wildlife and native plants.
  • Three Rooker Island is the next and most natural island in our list.   It is only reachable by boat and we are one of the few Clearwater Boat tour companies that go this distance from Clearwater! Three Rooker Island is a tiny step up from a sandbar with shifting beach areas that offer world class shelling.   In addition to hosting boaters, the island interior is off limits as it is super important for nesting birds.   This is a great party spot, but also a natural stop for shellers, and naturalists.
