While we think the fishing in Tampa Bay is the best thing the area has to offer, we would be foolish not to highlight the relaxing accommodations that line Florida’s west coast. Below are our top two resort recommendations that sit right on the edge of the calming waters surrounding Tampa Bay.
Pirate’s Pointe Resort in Ruskin, FL is situated on the Little Manatee River, just minutes away from the open waters of Tampa Bay. This unique resort offers studio through five bedroom cottages set amongst oak canopies and a lush tropical landscape. They take pride in preserving an “Old Florida” feel to allow the surrounding nature to flourish. Pirate Pointe’s many amenities include canoe, kayak, paddleboard, and fishing pole rentals, as well as a heated swimming pool and a serene boat dock. They are conveniently located just around the corner from Poseidon’s marina, making it quick and easy for us to pick you up for your charter trip and drop you off at the end of the day with your catch in hand. Spend the evening preparing your fish in your private cottage’s full kitchen after our captain filets it for you, or relax while one of Pirate Pointe’s chefs cooks it to perfection. As an added bonus, mention “Poseidon Charters” when you call to book a cottage!
The Westin Tampa Waterside Hotel in Tampa, FL is close to all the amenities of downtown Tampa while still providing a relaxed and renewed atmosphere overlooking the beautiful waterfront of the channel and views of the bay beyond. With on-site amenities such as their incredible Blue Harbour Eatery + Bar, spacious rooms, and waterfront outdoor pool, The Westin provides the ultimate Tampa Bay experience. Simply request transportation to and from our marina, and they will ensure that your vacation is nothing but relaxing and stress-free from sun-up to sun-down.
Whether you’ve come to Tampa Bay to make memories while fishing with Poseidon Charters, or to simply relax and take in the beauty and peacefulness of the surrounding waters, we hope your trip to Florida’s west coast leaves you wanting to come back for years to come.
