Docking Boat in Downtown St Pete

While downtown St. Pete is fantastic on its own, what puts it over the top for many is the fact it’s waterfront. Did you know there’s a municipal marina for docking your boat in Downtown St Pete? Pretty neat having the option to boat into the big city for restaurants and shopping! There are slips by Fresco’s restaurant, plus new slips were just added to the St Pete Pier!

Make sure you bring ropes to tie up and observe the no wake zones on the way into the downtown area. We’re so happy to have the new slips at the St Pete Pier because the slips at Fresco’s filled up quickly and often meant idling until someone finished dinner. 🙂

All of this boating to restaurants sounds fancy, at least for this guy who grew up on an avocado farm. But of course, everyone exiting the boat slips are in flip flops and dressed ‘Pinellas casual’.  Boating, fishing, and other marine activities are simply a way of life for many in this area.

Best news of all is that additional slips were just added on the St Pete Pier! Between the municipal marina and pier docking, there’s now quite a few slips for boaters.
