Attraction details
Owner description: The "Pass", as locals refer to it, was created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848. A pirate, John Levique, made the first passage through the newly created pass. Hence the name, Johns Pass. Located on the waterfront at Johns Pass, this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing village is Pinellas County's #1 tourist attraction. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing.

“Love John's Pass”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

As a local we have chosen the "new" area of Maderia Beach just across from John's Pass Village. When we've enough of the sun, we can shop, eat or just walk the boardwalk and watch the boats. One of our favorite things is sitting at Bubba Gump's and watching the dolphins and the bridge go up for the sailboats and big fishing boats. I've been coming to this part of Florida since I was a kid and have seen a lot of changes to this area, some good, some bad, but I still love John's Pass.
