Anna Maria Island’s Best Boat Tours

With vacation season fast approaching, many people are flocking to the shores of Florida to get away and get their tan on. With that in mind, it can sometimes be difficult to find the perfect location to have a nice relaxing vacation. You want a place that is remote and private but that still has plenty to do. Luckily, Anna Maria Island will check everything off of your list. 

Located 40 minutes outside of Sarasota, Anna Maria Island is a seven-mile stretch of land that may be small but has a huge personality about it. With numerous restaurants and picturesque locations, our island is the perfect place to plan your next vacation. Even better, with Anna Maria Vacation’s multitude of rental properties, finding the perfect fit for you will take no time at all!

Sail boat cruising through the ocean

Your only item left on your vacation preparation list will be to find some incredible things to do while you are here. Being right on the Gulf means that there is ocean all around you, which is what we live for here on Anna Maria Island. So, our suggestion to you is to get out on the water while you are here!

There are plenty of fishing excursions that you can partake in, but our favorite activity while vacationing is to simply sit back and relax. What better way to do that than on a calming boat cruise? Choose any one of the boat cruises that take off from our island and enjoy what each one has to offer!

Sunset cruise in Anna Maria Island

Sunset Cruises

One of the most relaxing cruises to go on, and a way to rekindle that flame with your significant other, is to watch the amazing sunsets that the Gulf has to offer. Being out on the Gulf with nothing blocking your view would be absolutely breathtaking. You and your partner can book any one of the amazing cruises and enjoy what the night has to offer. We suggest bringing a lightweight jacket, as the breeze off the Gulf can be cool at night. We also suggest some sunscreen, as the evening sun can still give you a bit of a burn. Finally, most of the cruises are fully licensed, meaning you can enjoy a delicious beverage and some snacks while onboard, so we do suggest bringing some cash with you in case you do decide to indulge!

Dolphins in the ocean on a dolphin cruise in AMI

Dolphin Cruises

On the other end of the spectrum is another amazing type of cruise, offering you different kind of spectacular views: dolphins! While dolphins are our neighbors, many people visiting us have never seen one in person before, which is why these dolphin charters were invented. The cruises leave at various times during the day, so there is always something available for you and your family. Many of these charters will take you out and around various parts of the bay and then finally out into the Gulf. The captains know where to look but obviously cannot guarantee sightings. Regardless, the cruises are still relaxing and a great way to spend part of your day. Once again, we suggest a light jacket, some sunscreen, and some cash for any onboard refreshments they have to offer. 

With a seven-mile stretch of the island to explore and amazing emerald waters surrounding you, why wouldn’t you make Anna Maria Island your next, and permanent, vacation spot? With beachfront condos in various sizes, private pools, huge living spaces, and some absolutely amazing properties, we promise an amazing and relaxing time. We’re steps away from various restaurants, local pubs and shops, and plenty of sand. We want to hear from you, so contact us today and let our team get you booked for your next vacation!
