Some folks are content simply splashing in the surf. But some of us - well, some of us want a little more than that . . . some of us have a need for speed, a thirst for adventure, an overwhelming urge to transcend the confines of dry land. Here in St. Pete/Clearwater, with our 35 miles of uninterrupted coastline, you can easily satisfy your craving for adventure on the water. There are dozens of local outfitters that can hook you up for parasailing, snorkeling, spear fishing or jet skiing. Divers of all experience levels will have tons to explore, from shipwrecks to sunken tanks, in our extensive artificial reef system. For a mellower mood, the tranquil, jewel-hued waters of the Gulf of Mexico are perfect for SUPing (stand-up paddleboarding). Or imagine yourself kayaking through mangrove tunnels so thick, you can put down the paddle and pull yourself along by hand. If you're traveling with little ones, you can rent a pontoon boat or charter a family-friendly fishing trip. Go on - see what the beach view is like from a watery vantage point.
