Boat rental in Tampa, FL with Click&Boat

Tampa is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States! People are flocking to the west coast of Florida city because of the weather, attractions, affordability, sports, and quality of life. Tampa is built on the waterfront, specifically Tampa Bay. This water is protected by Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg, which border the Gulf of Mexico. Tampa is one of those destinations that offers something for everyone, but it’s an especially family-friendly city. Attractions such as the zoo, aquarium, theme parks, water parks, and riverwalk are exciting for the little ones while also being entertaining for adults.

Most activities in Tampa are focused on being outside or on the water — boating is an especially popular way to enjoy the city. You’ll even notice that Tampa has somewhat of a pirate theme that embraces its history and culture. Keen to explore what this city from the water? Boat rental in Tampa is available with Click&Boat. We have plenty of vessels ranging in size and purpose for cruising around Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Anna Maria Island, Ruskin, and more!

Where to boat in Tampa

Boating in Tampa is unlike anywhere else in Florida. Cruising around the bay offers incredible views of the city skyline, while also offering wildlife, anchorages, and natural beauty. As Florida is geared toward the boating lifestyle, you have plenty of sailing destinations within Tampa Bay and out into the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you’re planning a half-day fishing trip, two-hour sunset cruise, or a party boat excursion, consider these boating destinations from Tampa:

  • Egmont Key is only accessible by boat and an awesome day trip from Tampa. Pack the boat rental with a cooler, towels, bathing suits, and sunscreen for a day spent on a remote island off the coast of St. Petersburg.
  • Hillsborough River will have a bit more high traffic with boating, but that’s because it’s a popular spot for fishing near Tampa. You can jump in the water to swim or snorkel but beware. Alligators are not uncommon in these parts.
  • Pinellas Wildlife National Refuge is an excellent boating destination to spot wildlife and connect with nature.
  • Passage Key is a small island between Egmont Key and Anna Maria Island. It’s worth a stop because the beach is stunning and it's perfect for sunbathing. That being said… Passage Key is also known as “Naked Island.” We’ll let your imagination wander…
  • Rent a boat with a captain and ask them about visiting Shell Key. It’s tricky to navigate to this boating destination, but once there, it has a gorgeous and secluded beach.
  • Participate in watersports at Riviera Bay! You’ll find opportunities for waterskiing, tubing, jet skiing, and wakeboarding.
  • Cruise to Anna Maria Island! It’s a quiet beach town with white sand and crystal clear water. This spot is a Florida paradise!
  • Lake Tarpon is a freshwater lake just north of Tampa that’s famous for bass fishing. If you’re interested in fishing as a beginner or as a pro, ask your boat captain about providing gear for a day on the water.
  • Discover Terra Ceia Aquatic Preserve to see local seagrass, mangroves, and salt marsh habitats.
