    Our first stop on the return trip was a single night at Clearwater Beach Marina. The dock master was alone, and overwhelmed with our arrival, so it was up to the members to help get all our boats secured up in the slips. A short walk had several members taking in the fabulous Clearwater beach along with its several bars and restaurants.

    We pulled into Clearwater Beach Muni a couple of days ago & love it. After a long 23 hour crossing from Panama City we like the beach close, quaint shopping within blocks, & CVS 2 blocks away. The only draw back is the commercial boats constantly in & out of the harbor. I’d still give it high marks.

    We are partial, but think that the Clearwater/St. Pete area is special. We are in Clearwater and can recommend any number of restaurants. For boating activity, there is a boat rental livery located at the City Marina on Clearwater Beach. Rent a small outboard boat and cruise up the ICW. Caladesi Island is a state park that is truly a treasure. Often voted to be among the top ten beaches in the world. Its an Island and the only practical way to get there is by boat. If you don’t want to rent a boat for the day, you can take a ferry. There is a kayak rental concessionaire on the island. You can easily cruise further up the ICW to the Anclote River and check out Tarpon Springs. Of course, you can also drive to Tarpon Springs.
    There are boat excursions available from many different places, running the gamut from fishing trips to sunset cruises to day sailing trips to dinner cruises on mini-ships. Spring Training has started. The Phillies train in Clearwater, the Blue Jays train in Dunedin and the Yankees are in Tampa.
    If you want to drive about 90 minutes north, Crystal River provides a wonderful opportunity to see and swim with Manatees. The 70 degree water is too cold for my taste, but being from Buffalo, that will probably feel like the 4th of July to you.

    Perhaps the best stay you’ll have along Florida’s West Coast is on Clearwater beach. I’ve been just about everywhere along the ICW and cannot find a better location.
    Clearwater Beach boasts plenty of restaurants, bars, clubs, services, and a decent sized Publix supermarket within walking distance from Clearwater Municipal Marina which can handle boats of all sizes.
    It is very family and pet friendly with lots to do on any given night. On weekends they set up a huge outdoor movie screen near the pier and show a different film each night — free of charge.
    The city has two marinas; a new floating slip on the Clearwater side (right along the ICW) and the original marina located on the beach. I highly recommend the older marina as the location is incredible.
    Fuel dock has diesel/gas/free pumpouts
    TV: cable provided but you’ll also pick up about 40 channels of digital over-the-air channels
    Cell: Sprint:4g, Verizon:4g,AT&T:3g — all very strong signals.
    Food: About 20 restaurants within a fifteen minute walk. Three within a five minute walk or less; one on location.
    Shopping: Two unique gift shops on location and about thirty shops within a fifteen minute walk. Publix is a twenty minute walk or take a cab for about $3.50
    Entertainment: Pier is one block away along with one of the most beautiful white sand beaches you’ll ever see; almost every bar/restaurant has live entertainment on most nights.

    In Clearwater Beach near the municipal marina is the Clearwater Marine Aquarium with Winter the tailless dolphin, also many restaurants and tour boats in this area.

    This was night five in our trip from Ft. Lauderdale to the Gulf Coast. We had intended to run from Sarasota to Tarpon Springs but got a late start and this was as far as we got before the sundown, and it was a lucky break. We didn’t stay long as we finished cleaning the boat after dark and were off the next morning at first light to cross to Apalachicola but the marina appeared nice and the dock master was very accomodating staying a little late to find us a slip as we were unscheduled to stay here. If we return the west coast we will plan to stay here again as our destination crossing from Apalachicola. There is easy walking access to several restraunts and the beach.

    As I mentioned above, we are currently docked at Clearwater Municipal Marina. As you note, this is a fine facility. My only complaint is that some of the upright posts on the finger piers are literally falling down. We need to be very careful getting on and off our boat, since the obvious post to grab is swinging on a single bolt and completely unstable. It appears that others in this area are in a similar state of disrepair.
    Best regards,
