  • 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.

  • A beautiful island to visit. I recommend the west side of the island to park your boat. The water is clear and the sand is endless. Always be safe and bring extra water, food, and two anchors. Do not let your boat drift away as you explore the island. In the event your boat does not start extra water and food will make your stranded island stay much more enjoyable.
  • Beautiful beaches and water. Views are spectacular. Great place to walk the beach and hunt for seashells or just sit and enjoy the scenery.
  • Great place to go and relax, have a beach picking or just play in the water. Plenty of island for everyone to share. Only accessible by boat but worth the trip
  • An amazing kayak trip out. Some noseeums there but otherwise great for a weekend of camping. Lots of resources out there to research, so you can have a successful trip.
  • A very nice pontoon boat trip out of the Tarpon Springs, Florida Sponge Docks port. The trip is about 30 minutes, till you get to the island. About 30-40 minutes later we return to the Sponge Docks, but not until we we're able to search the island for Shells and Sponge, which there are very many. It would be great to be able to spend a couple of hours out there, but it sure was pretty
