One of the great things about boating in and around Siesta Key is that there are numerous places along the water where you can grab a cold beer or tropical drink and a bite to eat. No matter where you find yourself a great waterside restaraunt or tiki bar is likely not too far away. The view from each place is breathtaking and unique and having been to many I can attest that the food is excellent!
On many full day trips we will make a stop for lunch in between snorkeling and tubing adventures giving everyone a chance to refuel and recharge for the second half of their day. Often times a half day outing wil involve a stop at one of several tiki bars for one last drink before heading back to the dock.
From Longboat Key to Venice you can find these waterside restaraunts dotted along the intracoastal waterway. If you are visiting the area check one or more out, some are a little off the beaten path by land but well worth the drive. Of course we can take you there by boat which seems to add a little more to the entire experince!
Heading back to the dock after a cold drink and a bite to eat we often see dolphins frolicking in the water and many times are able to get them to play in the wake of the boat. Its not uncommon for them to come very close and then jump completely out of the water affording excellent opportunities for pictures! One outing like that and you quickly realize what inspired Jimmy Buffet to write that song so many years ago!
