Tons of them. That's the only thing I miss about living in Pinellas. In my opinion, the Tampa Bay area is the best boating in the state. Dozens of places to go, and dozens of different ways to get there. How long are you staying there?

It's fun to make the run across the bay and go up the Hillsboro River into Tampa. Our boat club stayed at the Radisson on the river one night. We had a ball! We took a van over to Harborside for dinner at, then we took the trolley into Ybor for a night at the Apmpitheater where we had a private area, with our own bouncer, and a door that led to a balcony overlooking 7th Ave.

No anything about the Bahia Beach Resort. That and the Sunspree are on my list right now.

We had a poker run lunch stop at Bahia one time. It was a nice place, but Ruskin's in the middle of nowhere.

Recommended lunch stops? Anywhere down the coast or in the bay would be cool.

Thanks..

If you want to go up the bay you have to go to Rattlefish. It is like Bonefish on the water with excellent floating docks and plenty of space.

Mar Vista on Longboat Key is a must-do for lunch. It's south, and you can get there by intercoastal from Eggmont if need be. If it's smooth, it's a nice cruise out in the gulf to get there. It's on the north end of longboat key, just south of the pass.

Mar Vista has always been one of my favorites. When we were there last year for the Donzi Hometown Rally, the docks really needed some sprucing up. You have to watch for the big rusty bolts sticking out of it, or beach your boat.
