Caladesi Island - Beach

Take your boat or kayak out to Caladesi Island State Park, one of the last untouched islands along Florida’s Gulf Coast. As one of the more secluded beaches in Florida, Caladesi Island is accessible primarily by water and is a wonderful, lesser-known destination for those seeking unique things to do in Tampa.

Marina Pointe’s luxury towers and townhomes place residents a convenient boating excursion from this pristine park, which was once known simply as “Paradise.”

EXPLORE CALADESI ISLAND FLORIDA

Caladesi Island State Park can be reached by private boat at any time or a public ferry, which departs from nearby Honeymoon Island every half hour. Determined visitors can hike 2.5 miles to Caladesi Island from Clearwater Beach too.

Discover a wide array of aquatic activities and outdoor recreation at this breathtaking beach near Tampa.

Caladesi Island - Marina

Boating

Dock your boat or yacht at Caladesi Island’s 108-slip bayside marina. When the weather is calm, boaters can even anchor offshore and soak in the sunshine and sea breezes.

Fishing

Designated areas surrounding Caladesi Island State Park are perfect for fishing, although a license may be required. These areas include the north end pass and the Dunedin pass – you can also cast a line from your boat.

Hiking

There are three miles of nature trails for visitors to explore. Stroll along the pristine white sand beaches and watch birds chase fish through the surf, or hike to the 19th century Scharrer Homestead ruins through the island’s interior.

This tranquil Caladesi Island homestead was established by Henry Scharrer in 1892, when the island was still called “Hog Island,” and he and his family lived there until 1934. The stone ruins of the foundations and chimney are all that remain of his historic home.

Paddling

Rent a canoe or kayak near Caladesi Island State Park’s marina and café and explore the island’s paddling trail. Wind through the shaded mangrove forests, glide over shallow sea grass flats, or paddle all the way to the Scharrer homestead.

On the trail, you’ll spot local birds such as blue herons, great egrets and osprey, along with Gulf fish such as mullet, snook and red drum. Lucky paddlers may even spy dolphins, manatees, bald eagles or soft pink roseate spoonbills.

Swimming

Beach lovers will enjoy sunbathing, shelling and swimming in the crystal clear waters surrounding Caladesi Island Florida.

Boaters know that getting there is half the fun! Here are a collection of six stunning outdoor destinations that are only accessible by boat, all just a short and enjoyable ride from Marina Pointe Tampa.

Boating in Tampa

SHELL KEY PRESERVE

Shell Key is a pristine barrier island that includes an 1,800-acre preserve with stunning marine habitats, mangrove islands and vast sea grass beds.

In addition to sun-splashed recreation, Shell Key is one of the state’s most important areas for shorebird nesting, wintering and study. The central part of the island is reserved for conservation, leaving the northern and southern ends for fun times and relaxation along soft sand beaches.

Accessible only by boat, Shell Key Preserve offers camping as well as beach and boating activities.

Boating in Tampa

EGMONT KEY STATE PARK

The unspoiled beaches of Egmont Key are reachable only by private boat and are ideal for collecting shells and savoring quiet beauty with family and friends. The park is also a national wildlife refuge, protecting a diverse community of animals and plants, including Brown Pelicans and Laughing Gulls.

History buffs will also enjoy Egmont Key State Park for its unique natural and cultural history. The lighthouse has looked out along the shore since 1858. During the 19th century, the island served various military purposes during the Third Seminole War, Civil War and Spanish-American War, and Fort Dade was built on the island and remained active until 1923.

Fishing enthusiasts also enjoy Egmont Key, as it’s a prime spot for reeling in sea trout, tarpon, snook, grouper and snapper. Egmont Key snorkeling is popular because the welcoming waters are clear and calm – ideal for up close encounters with abundant sea life.

Boating in Tampa
HONEYMOON ISLAND STATE PARK

Honeymoon Island represents a unique opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s an oasis of white-sand beaches and stunning sunsets that also invites visitors to discover a rare virgin slash pine forest via a scenic three-mile trail. The Honeymoon Island dog beach makes it a great experience for those who bring their pets on boating adventures too.

Marina Pointe residents can boat to this much-loved state park for swimming, fishing and shelling, in addition to popular activities like biking and hiking. Honeymoon Island State Park is also accessible by a ferry from Caladesi Island.

Sun-seekers and boaters aren’t the only ones to populate the state park. Wildlife residents include everything from gopher tortoises to eagles and great horned owls. The Rotary Centennial Nature Center offers a wealth of insights on Honeymoon Island’s natural treasures and historic moments.

CALADESI ISLAND CAMPING

Stephen Leatherman, an internationally recognized expert of sands and surf known as Dr. Beach, has judged Caladesi Island to be one of the best beaches in the United States for three years running.

“The white beach is composed of crystalline quartz sand which is soft and cushy at the water’s edge, inviting one to take a dip in the sparkling clear waters,” Leatherman said. “There are boardwalk trails, but my favorite is the kayak and canoe trails through the mangroves to see the large blue herons and other birds that frequent this wonderful natural area.”

Caladesi Island State Park can only be accessed via boat and offers a host of unforgettable experiences. There are leisurely strolls along uncrowded beaches, kayaking through a mangrove forest and a nature trail walk through thick stands of pines and oaks to a historic homestead. Caladesi Island Camping is a favorite with those who love the great outdoors.

THREE-ROOKER ISLAND

A decade ago, Three-Rooker Bar did not exist. This small, semicircular island emerged as a result of the ever-changing sands and coastal processes along the Gulf, and has quickly become a favorite destination for in-the-know boaters.

Three-Rooker Island is something of a party paradise, a casual stretch of beach that’s perfect for those who want to drop anchor and let the good times roll. Weekends are especially lively, except for the part of the island reserved as a protected bird habitat. Camping is allowed, but be advised that there are no facilities provided and pets are prohibited.

ANCLOTE KEY LIGHTHOUSE

Located three miles off the coast of Tarpon Springs is Anclote Key Preserve State Park, made up of four islands: Anclote Key, North Anclote Bar, South Anclote Bar and Three Rooker Island. The park is accessible only by private boat or ferry service.

In this charmed coastal setting along blue-green Gulf waters, visitors can swim and picnic and enjoy a rustic camping experience paced by the rhythm of gently lapping waves. The 11,773-acre park offers birding enthusiasts more than 43 species to observe in this rare and unspoiled island habitat.

At the southern end of the island is the Anclote Key Lighthouse. Built in 1887, this lighthouse is a square pyramid made of cast iron rather than the typical design favored along the upper Atlantic coast of the United States.

St. Patrick’s Day Tampa - Visit Tampa Bay

Every year, Tampa’s mayor invites residents and visitors to the River O’Green Fest to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Tampa. Hosted in downtown’s iconic Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, this signature event is a charming celebration of all things Irish along the Hillsborough Riverwalk.

Among the seven US cities known for dying a river green, Tampa is a relative newcomer. Chicago started this inspired St. Patrick’s Day tradition in 1961, followed by San Antonio seven years later.

Going Green on Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park

The Hillsborough River is the perfect backdrop for the Irish-themed party with its waters transformed into a vivid shade of green for the occasion. Crowds of revelers will be similarly clad in emerald hues during the free-spirited celebration that includes live entertainment, games, kid’s activities, food trucks, and the always-popular green beer.

Marina Pointe Construction - Groundbreaking

Present for the festive occasion were Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, BTI Partners CEO Noah Breakstone and COO Kevin Mays, local dignitaries, construction and retail partners, and buyers and brokers.

Prior to the formal groundbreaking, preliminary marina and site work commenced in late 2019. Initial tower move-in for Marina Pointe Tampa is anticipated to take place within 24 months, and the retail experience of Westshore Marina District will begin delivery in the first quarter of 2021.

Marina Pointe Construction - Program

Project Status Report

The first tower will feature contemporary towers and townhomes overlooking an impressive deepwater marina, the largest currently under construction on Florida’s West Coast, which provides immediate access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

A newly announced boat-up dining destination, Paloma, will also lie a short stroll away from the condominiums via a Westshore Marina District’s waterfront promenade.

“We are thrilled to initiate groundbreaking construction on this one-of-a-kind project and look forward to seeing Marina Pointe and the Westshore Marina District come to life over the next 24 months,” said Kevin Mays, Chief Operating Officer of BTI Partners in a special statement.

Luxury Boat Maintenance - Dock Hand

Marina Pointe’s setting in the heart of the Westshore Marina District makes the area an ideal luxury boating destination, placing contemporary condos alongside a state-of-the-art deepwater marina.

When owners purchase one of the marina’s 150 slips, they enjoy unobstructed access to the sparkling waters of Tampa Bay as well as a full complement of on-site concierge boat services and boat maintenance.

Luxury Boat Maintenance - Concierge Services
Marina Concierge Services

Marina concierge services are designed to anticipate residents’ needs and enhance their on-the-water lifestyle. A marina concierge ensures every boat or yacht is carefully serviced, detailed and prepared for launch by the time the owner is ready to set sail. They can also provision each vessel with food, drinks and fuel.

Overview of traditional marina concierge services:

  • Fuel
  • Detailing
  • Service
  • Maintenance
  • Food and Beverage

All yacht concierge services will be provided by an exclusive and expert retailer, who will soon be announced.

Luxury Boat Maintenance - Slips
Boat Maintenance

As part of the concierge experience, Marina Pointe residents’ boats and yachts will receive standard maintenance and launch prep. Vessels 40 feet or larger tend to sit in water full-time and require regular care and upkeep, particularly in corrosive saltwater environments.

Basic boat maintenance includes the following:

General Washing and Cleaning

All visible elements on the exterior of the yachts should generally be washed and cleaned every 2-4 weeks. A thorough exterior cleaning ranges from removing canvas covers and wiping down upholstery to polishing metal fixtures and scrubbing woodwork. Interior cleanings involve dusting, cleaning countertops, toilets, sinks and more.

Underwater Cleaning

Manufacturers recommend having the bottom of a boat or yacht cleaned once a month, but owners may want to have this done more frequently in warm water areas like Tampa Bay. Standard underwater sessions involve a diver cleaning the hull from the water line and below, ensuring that all barnacles, algae and marine life are completely removed, and confirming that the running gear below the water is also free of barnacle growth. Maintaining a clean hull will maximize a vessel’s life span and improve its performance and efficiency.

System Check

Much like a fine automobile, a boat or yacht’s internal systems – air conditioning, pumps, exhaust, batteries, fuels and lubrication, and so on – should be reviewed regularly. Air conditioning maintenance is particularly important in Florida’s humid climate, and it’s likely that A/C lines will need to be flushed at least every six months.

Some owners may be comfortable doing some or all of the system check themselves. Others may prefer to have a professional complete a comprehensive check, provide a service report summary and recommend next steps.
