From the legendary white sands of Siesta Key to lively Sarasota and Bradenton, this beautiful Gulf Coast region is truly a boater’s paradise. Blessed with balmy breezes, endless days of sunshine and plenty to do ashore, the area boasts easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway, the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota Bay and the Manatee River. 

Great Gulf Access

Whether you’re a kayaker, fisherman, sailor or power-boater, the Sarasota boating lifestyle will be your idea of paradise. Gulf access abounds from waterfront, canal front and riverside properties, and you’ll find yourself gliding down the canal or river and out onto the gin-clear waters of the Gulf in no time. Easily navigable chartered waterways are arranged so that most canals lead onto the Manatee River or Intracoastal Waterway and then out onto the Gulf, a scenic voyage seldom taking more than half an hour.

A Home on the Water

Whether it’s a sprawling Gulf-front mansion or cozy riverside abode, living right on the water in Sarasota means you’ll be just steps from your boat and all the amazing seagoing adventure of the Gulf. Head out early in the morning for a spot of sunrise fishing, enjoy an afternoon sail out to Longboat Key and wind up a perfect day by dropping the hook at Longboat Pass and drinking in a spectacular sunset before heading back to relax in your own slice of waterfront paradise. 

Boating Communities

Keep your beloved boat just down the street from home when you buy a residence in one of Sarasota’s many boating communities. Polished condos or airy single family homes are just down the street from deep water docks where you can keep your pride and joy. Many of these friendly communities also feature a full slate of amenities including club houses, resort-style pools, tennis courts, fitness centers, boardwalks and even nature trails. Dock your 70-foot yacht at your own private slip or just pull the kayak ashore and head over to the club for an icy beverage out on the deck with friends. As any local boater knows, there’s not much that compares with being minutes from your boat and just a short ride out to Gulf adventures. 

Yacht Clubs

Yacht clubs abound around Sarasota and Bradenton. From exclusive enclaves like the historic Field Club to organizations like the private, family-oriented Bradenton Yacht Club and the member-owned Sarasota Sailing Squadron, these clubs are a super way to get to know other boaters and enjoy social activities and events both on and off the water. Whatever your boating experience, interests and style, Sarasota and Bradenton have a club for you. 

Nature and Wildlife

The area’s rich diversity of nature and wildlife is a big draw for landlubbers and boaters alike. Imagine the magic of heading toward the Gulf as a playful dolphin leaps beside your boat and ospreys quietly watch your passage out to sea; you may even spot a manatee near fresh water springs. Jump off the side for some incredible snorkeling among coral formations and wrecks or take the kayak out to explore the intriguing inlets of shady tropical mangrove forests, home to young fish, sea stars and even baby sharks.

Just Offshore 

A lot of what’s happening in the area is right offshore in the local keys. Take the boat over to tony shopping district St. Armand Circle for a little retail therapy and slip “next door” to Lido Key’s fantastic beaches. About half of upscale Longboat Key is in Sarasota County, offering a wealth of dining and recreational opportunities. Dock at Cannons Marina, pick up necessities at the ship’s store and head in to Moore’s Stone Crab to dine on the local delicacy. Siesta Key offers eight gorgeous miles of beaches, canals and shops, while seven-mile-long Anna Maria Island is home to gorgeous beaches, golfing, fishing and a cool little local history museum.

Cultural Capital of Florida

The perfect southern city for those craving a healthy dose of culture along with their sails, sun and sparkling seas, Sarasota boasts a full slate of historic sights, notable museums, ballet, symphony and theaters. Moor downtown at Marina Jack and head off to stroll through brilliant botanical gardens, browse the shops or explore the fascinating exhibits of the Ringling Estate. This stunning 66-acre waterfront property includes the spectacular but eccentrically furnished Ringling mansion along with fascinating circus history collections. Check out their slate of events and head over on the boat for an afternoon or evening of fun.
