  • Bought a Groupon for a rental of a pontoon boat. A very wonderful way to get to the Island from Tarpon Springs. Just remember you can't tent a boat without a Florida Safe Boating Certificate.  more »
  • Florida National Park, a complex of several islets. In the southern part of the big island has a lighthouse and 19 century. Prior to that, the island served as a refuge for pirates, then here grew sponges. In the northern part of the complex there are campsites with barbecues. White sand with seashells, bays, birds, krabikami. You can only swim on punts (5 km from the coast), there is a rush.

  • Quiet, peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. Great place to spend the day. Fishing the beach, trails and lighthouse. A million dollar sunset.  more »

  • Love this place for the views and the beach. It was too cold this time to snorkel but when I have smokeless there are so many unique views. I have seen horseshoe crabs walking on the bottom, huge fish swimming under me and even a beautiful blue crab resting in the weeds below. Great place to visit!!!
  • Wo w! This island is So Beautiful. When we visited was a great time of the day. Late afternoon on a weekday. Not too many people. Lots of great seashells to pick up. The water is Very clear here. Can't wait to go back.
  • Odyssey Cruises was fantastic. 2 hour cruise at sunset. Staff very professional and funny. Very well worth it. Brand nnew boat, clean. Staff also gave historical background of the area as we depated the area.
  • Undisturbed beauty. Lots of shells to see. Good fishing nearby.
  • Nice park. Lots of trailer parking. Ramps can be challenging because of tidal flow there. AND PEOPLE. not fun when it's crowded on weekends and even though there IS tons of trailer parking...that can run out on busy weekends.
