Splash your way along Tampa Bay as you cast away for top-notch fishing and tropical fun at this waterfront resort.

The Destination
Whiskey Key. Devil's Elbow. Goat Island. Whimsical names fit the mysterious call to adventure emanating from the shrouded South Shore of Tampa Bay. From fantastic all-season boating and fishing options to the shores of the Little Manatee River adorned with natural mangrove trees, it's no wonder Ruskin is where locals come to soak up some Florida sun. When you're ready for a break from the wild, turn your explorer spirit to more urbane pursuits in nearby Sun City, where palm-lined streets are packed with cozy spots dishing out fresh seafood.

The Digs
Perched on the waterfront at the mouth of Little Manatee River, Pirate's Pointe Resort is a leafy treasure trove of tropical-style relaxation and upscale amenities. Private bungalows offer a rustic, yet modern ambiance in soft Caribbean-inspired colors with fully equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and scenic private patios. Between the outdoor pool and dock with boat slips, you won't have to spend very long away from the water—there are even canoes available for guests to rent. Take one for a spin in the mangroves of Cockroach Bay, and cast your line for red fish and trout to grill for dinner.

The Diversions
Get hooked. Start the day reeling in big beauties on a private fishing charter helmed by an experienced guide from On Pointe Fishing Charters.
Explore. Later, sink your feet into the sand at E.G. Simmons Park, just three miles north of Ruskin.
Marvel. Don't miss the Manatee Viewing Center in Apollo Beach for an unforgettable encounter with these gentle creatures.

  • "The resort is beautifully landscaped, and the accommodations were nicely appointed and comfortable. Best of all, it was clean! We especially enjoyed the patio that was by our efficiency... Had fun fishing! Would definitely recommend this place!"

  • "I love this place! This is the perfect place to get away and relax. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is inviting, and the staff is there if you need them—and not intrusive if you don't. I wish we could have stayed longer."
