About Clearwater

Clearwater is a city in Florida located northwest of Tampa and St. Petersburg. Sitting on the Gulf of Mexico, it’s a family-friendly vacation destination. Clearwater sees far smaller crowds than the spring break destinations of Miami or Daytona. It doesn't have the cheesy, artificial entertainment of Orlando, making it a fantastic choice for old-fashioned Florida.

The best time to visit Clearwater is January-March and September-November. This is also the busiest and more expensive time of the year to visit. Summers can be hot and humid with more rainfall than in winter, but are a good option if you’re looking to avoid high prices.

There are two primary airports that will give you access to Clearwater. St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport, and Tampa Bay International Airport have the best fares. If you plan on exploring Clearwater beyond what is accessible by boat, a car rental is essential as public transport is rather limited.

Sitting right on the shores of the beautiful blue Gulf, there are endless options for boat rentals and charters in Clearwater. Dolphin tours, catamaran rentals, jet ski tours, pontoon cruises and powerboats are wonderful options for spending a day out on the water.

Renting a jet ski is an excellent way to cover a lot of ground, see lots of wildlife including manatees, dolphins, and birds. While jet-skiing is more popular with young adults, the trained professionals at jetski rental companies will provide safety instruction for families traveling with younger children.

While there is a lot of emphasis on power boats and other motorized watercraft in Clearwater, traveling by wind is a great alternative. Sailboats are plentiful and offer excellent water experiences. Book an evening trip to see the orange skies ignite over the Gulf as the sun goes down. Check out the catamaran and sailing yacht options in Clearwater for your wind-powered boat trip.
