Here’s a Great Day Trip…
If you aren’t staying in Madeira Beach or Treasure Island, you might find it fun to visit! Johns Pass Village in Madeira Beach was chosen as the “Best Shopping Splurge!” location this year in the “2015 BEST OF ST. PETERSBURG CLEARWATER AREA ” video that showcases some fun and fabulous places!
So make time for this fun explore!
Pirate Haunts Plus!
I love John’s Pass. It is the entrance to Boca Ciega bay from the Gulf of Mexico, created by the Great Gale of 1848. Along the boardwalk, you can always catch the acrobatics of a few of the 250 or so dolphins that live in the area.
First inhabited by the Timucua Indians, legends tell us that pirates, roaming the area, used this area as a base for attacks on both Spanish and English ships!
“The Village” was a fishing settlement that small commercial boats worked out of. Today, what you will find based here are deep sea fishing charter boats, small rental watercraft, a Pirate cruise for kids and adults alike, a dolphin watch cruise or parasailing vessels!
