Anna Maria Island is a beautiful barrier island stretching approximately 7 miles from north to south bounded on the west by the Gulf of Mexico, south by Longboat Pass, east by Anna Maria Sound, and north by Tampa Bay. Once considered a hidden gem, Anna Maria Island is now known by many to be tropical paradise, due to its blue-green waters, warm temperatures, and white sandy beaches. The island is divided into 3 cities: Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, and Bradenton Beach, all of which cater to tourists with plentiful restaurants, shops and attractions.

While cruising around the island, you will get to see the abundant wildlife that is present in and around the Gulf. The entire island is a bird sanctuary, and you will observe pelicans, multiple types of cranes and herons, wild parrots, sand pipers, hawks, vultures, seagulls, crows, and of course, our favorite, bottlenose dolphins. You may also spot stingrays, jellyfish, sharks and many other forms of marine wildlife.
