This is a service to bring you to the local establishments or beaches in the area. Not having a rental car, it was a huge bonus to find out about this service. Julia, our driver was absolutely amazing and went out of her way to make sure the people in our group were safe and back to our hotel. She will pick you up at your hotel or establishment and offer to bring you back to your hotel. We used her services several times during our visit in Nov 2021 and she always had a smile on her face, very prompt and always made the experience the best possible. I can't thank her enough for all she did for our group and my only regret is not tipping her more. She was very accommodating and patient with our group and went out of her way on several occasions to accommodate us . I promise you, If you use Julia and the Free Beach Ride, especially if you plan to use it more than once, please tip her well. She is more than worth it! Thank you Julia and I hope to see you again in St Pete Beach. You are the best!

Tiffany was more than fantastic! My recommendation is to ask for her or chance your luck by happenstance. Tiff made our stay in St. Pete perfect by sharing her local knowledge of all things from recommending the restaurant where we had our best meal to finding us the perfect spot to put our toes in the sand, drink in hand, and live music. Thank you Tiffany and hopefully this will be your go to cutie too!

My husband and I got married on Sunset Beach on 9/16 and we reserved the Free Beach Ride Service to pick up us and our guests before the ceremony, take us to the ceremony, pick us up after the ceremony and pictures, take us to the restaurant for dinner and celebration, and then take us all back to our resorts after the celebration. Our drivers were Michelle and Jason and both were FANTASTIC!!! They were so sweet and kind, kept up with great communication throughout the times needed, and they were always on time and supportive in helping us and our guests on our special day. They took all the stress away from us on our big day and we are so grateful for their assistance! We definitely would recommend using them for any time needed!!

A special thanks to Julia from Free Beach Rides in Treasure Island, Florida! Our flight got in at 10 PM the grocery stores were closed. We were carless. Julia gave us a ride to a pizza place that was open late so we could get a late dinner and extras for nibbling until we got to the grocery store. She was professional, fun, informative… And we liked her so much that we requested her multiple times during our visit!

Thanks for your service during the late night shift Julia! We felt safe and worry free with you in charge! :)

6 adults, 6 kids, pretty much stranded on the boulevard after beach trolley only took us so far and booted us off, fairly far from our hotel...no Ubers available for over an hour...our sad/sorry little faces caught Free Beach Ride’s attention and her current load of passengers saved us, and offered us a lift. We piled in and rode in the open top vehicle and enjoyed a fantastic ride with great company and sweet, lovable, kind driver. Will definitely use this service again, so wonderful, especially since transportation options were at a minimum with the crowds of Spring breakers.

We came to visit and opted to not rent a car. Turns out, we didn’t really need one! We were there for 5
Days and were not able to call these guys anytime and just tell them where we wanted to go. We seldom had to wait more than 5 minutes for them to show up. The drivers work for tips so you pay them what you want. We paid $5-$10 a ride depending on how far they took us. All the drivers were very polite, know the area well and gave us recommendations when asked. Super awesome service!

Highly recommend using free beach ride with frisbee Shawn. He picked us up quickly always and safely got us to our destination. Made it such a fun experience singing with us enjoying the breeze in the safari van!

Frisbee Shawn was one of the highlights of my entire trip. He offered great advice and unbelievable hospitality. I enjoyed the positive energy he displayed and had sooo much fun going from spot to spot with this driver. Hands down the only way to travel the local beaches and hot spots.
