A Beach, Boating and Sport Fishing PARADISE.

Boating enthusiasts have no end of water-inspired activities to enjoy in Sarasota. Memberships are available at the private Sarasota Yacht Club just over the John Ringling Causeway. A few short blocks from home, Sarasota's Bayfront Park has slips at the full service Marina Jack.

Between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, the beautiful key islands of Sarasota offer endless opportunities to explore the area by sea. Boating, kayaking and fishing are enjoyed year-round. Waterfront restaurants, bars, boat launches and public beaches beckon from every shore, including the powder soft sands of Siesta Key, ranked the #1 Beach in the World by Dr. Beach in 2011.
