Re: Tampa Bay Charter
We're actually already back, we had the boat for 3 days, 3 nights. We had a great time. The boat was based at a marina immediately north of the pier, so that whole area was walkable. We actually used a municipal garage to park the car inside too.
We had a great time. Two of the nights we actually spent at the dock. The night in the middle we anchored over in the Manatee river by Desoto Point. The night on the anchor was so smooth I was amazed, its a great place if anybody is looking. The beach was fun too, we didn't explore the trails, but they were there if you wanted them.
The sailing was great. One suggestion, I bought an app for my iPhone, Memory-Map. Its 8 dollars and all the nautical charts are free. It allowed me to look at the area prior to getting down there and get a feel for things, and I liked it better then the chart plotter on that was on the boat. Anyway, highly recommend it.
