    Great beach, lifeguards on duty, there is changing areas, bathrooms, restaurants bar, beach chair and umbrella rentals. The food is really good, friendly staff, shop, and the have live music nightly. Even though we had a beach across from our condo we packed up and spent everyday here. Love this place.

    Despite the red tide, the beach experience was awesome. Water was clear, sun was out, sand free of trash and mostly free of sea debris. The Cafe was a little pricy, but the menu was extensive and offered something for everyone. Parking was easy. Showers and changing rooms were easy to access.

    We had stopped at Hurricane Hanks for lunch and this was in the shopping plaza. We walked in and were greeted by someone at the desk who went on to tell us that the artists who display their wares/talent are also those who work in the shop. This keeps their prices down. nice paintings and jewelry as well

    I am not Catholic nor have I attended one of their services on the Island, but I will say these people do know how to throw a garage sale. Pricing tends a tad towards the higher side, but plenty of bargains. Definitely, something for everyone.

    I think this is Miscategorized. It’s pretty telling just how boring this island is when 3 churches are in the “Top 7 Attractions”

    More arts and crafts than art. Bright colors and happy subjects but you can see this at any crafts fair.

    My experience with Ana Maria Charters started with a phone call to another charter company. They were booked. I was on vacation with my family in Sarasota few years back. I asked if they knew of another place. He recommended a guy "Dave" with Anna Maria Charters. Dave had an opening I took it. My son, my daughter myself. Also a friend of mine and his 2 kids. We had a great time. Black Tip Reef Shark and Permit to the caught list! Great memories! My son realized that day that fish scales stay in braces for days. Ha

    My second trip unfortunately got canceled due to weather. Got my deposit back no problem and looked forward to booking my next trip.

    Just got back from a Tarpon Trip few weeks ago with Dave. His dedication and skill to finding these schools is impressive. What an experience! I didn't realize what skill went into hunting Tarpon. I respect it now. That's a powerful fish. Can't wait to get back out.

    Captain Aaron was great. Took my three children out 13, 11, and 6 and we caught snook and sea trout. Had a great time and Captain Aaron is a great guy which made the trip even more enjoyable. Had us catching fish throughout the trip. Thanks Aaron

    We had an awesome time with Captain Nate! He had us catching fish as soon as we started. When he asked what I wanted to fish for, I told him we wanted to catch what we can save and cook and he definitely didn't disappoint! Once we caught the limit to save, we were catching plenty just for fun! He also recommended the perfect seasoning for our fish! I highly recommend booking with Captain Nate!

    This tour was so much fun! The tour guide Kaycee was so patient and worked with us 1X1 to make sure we were all comfortable on our Segway, able to maneuver it, get on/get off of it, etc. Some of the verbal part of the tour was done through walkie-talkies on every Segway: loved that she made sure we didn’t miss anything! Ana Maria Island is absolutely stunning, you won’t want to get back on the Segway because…those views!! Highly recommend!

    We rented a paddleboard for the day for our kids and they loved it! Andrew was easy to work with and delivered the board on time and communicated great! We will rent again when we are back at the beach next year!

    Captain Drew is top notch! I wasn’t sure how the family would react to the excursion but afterwards it was obvious they loved every part of it. To top it off Captain Drew found a few dolphins that were wanting to show off and swim right behind the boat putting on a show my family will never forget.

    Egmont Key is so beautiful and lined with nesting black skimmers and turtle nests, seriously Fabulous afternoon. The Captain and his years of experience made for some interesting stories :)

    Captain Frank was great! Very knowledgeable about the area. A private charter is great for families or large groups. We had a party of 6 adults and 3 small children (2 seven year olds and a two and a half year old). We spent an hour lounging around on a sandbar and Captain Frank knew a couple good places to spot dolphins, which did not disappoint! 10/10 highly recommend!
