Channels that are often used by commerce are usually maintained. Something about paying big in taxes, and lobbyist clout...
Boca Ceiga was once a relaxed place to be. Plus, remember the old Isla del Sol?
We have a 12th floor view of Boca Ciega Bay from the Condo we're renting but also enjoy cruising with the Boca Ciega Yacht Club next to the Gulfport Munincipal Marina. We are also fortunate to own a home on the St Johns River, just north of Palatka, Florida and have cruised from there to Boca Ciega Bay via the Okeechobee and the Keys on a 33' Ranger. So whether you plan to cruise the St. Johns River, the east or gulf coasts of Florida up to Clearwater, come on and just do it. Bring along a Florida cruising guide, it doesn't have to be the latest edition things just don't change that fast, and if you don't like the place you are, the place you'll love is only one day away. If you need specific advice infoatratislanddotcom is available on everything from cruising to where to dry store your boat.
