About Tampa

Famously known as the Big Guava, Tampa is home to more than 165 parks and an immense stretch of beach within the city limits. The surrounding suburbs add another 70,000 acres of beautiful beaches. Whether you are planning for an exhilarating adventure or a relaxing experience, Tampa has it all.

The best time of year to visit Tampa is between September and December. These months have good weather and more reasonable prices for accommodation. May through August is very busy, with high prices, uncomfortable humidity, and crowded beaches. The summer months also are risky due to hurricane season and there is heavier rainfall.

The easiest way to get to Tampa is to take a flight directly to the Tampa International Airport. The St. Petersburg/Clearwater airport is also nearby, in case it is more economical to fly there. To get around Tampa, there is public transportation on buses, but driving is the easiest and most convenient method.

Being the largest estuary of Florida, Tampa Bay has more splendid boating areas than any other place in the state. There are more than 60 public access boat ramps in the Tampa Bay area which make getting on the water very easy. The Tampa-St. Petersburg area as well as the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay, and Caladesi Island are ideal destinations for all types of boaters. There are plenty of sailing, powerboating, and on-the-water experiences to choose from.

If a fishing adventure is on the cards, why not go for a deep-sea expedition on a chartered boat? Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay offers boating and fishing opportunities throughout the year. Your fishing captain and crew can take you to the best spots for reeling in snook, redfish, trout and many more. Charters include all bait, tackle, fishing licenses, and gear.

There's no shortage of boating fun to be had in the Gulf of Mexico surrounding Tampa Bay, but the real gems are the hidden bays and rivers.
