Clearwater Beach Paddle Board Rental

Clearwater Beach Paddle Board Rental 4

I’ve previously written about standup paddle board rental locations in Clearwater Beach, but I wanted to share some more information with you. Here’s my first-hand experience of paddle boarding in the Clearwater Beach area.

Paddle Board Rental

My wife and I rented paddle boards from Clearwater Beach Paddleboard & Rental Co. We waited to book our paddle board rental until we were in Clearwater Beach and made sure we rented on a day with good weather. We wanted to make sure that it wouldn’t rain, but we also wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be too windy or have choppy water. We called Clearwater Beach Paddleboard & Rental Co to make a reservation the day before our rental. If you’re visiting Clearwater Beach during a busy time of year, you may want to call further in advance. Their number: (727) 444-0441

Clearwater Beach Paddleboard & Rental Co is located at 439 Poinsettia Ave, Clearwater Beach, FL 33767. Their storefront is not on the water, but don’t worry you do not need to carry the paddle board around. The rental company will take care of it for you. We showed up at the shop the morning of our rental, checked in, signed some paperwork, and were ready to go in minutes! We chose to paddle board in the Intracoastal of Clearwater Beach and they had us set up to leave from their dock just down the street from them. They walked us down to the dock, helped us get set up with lifevests, paddles, and boards. They took the time to show us how to properly set the paddle length to match our height and give us some tips on using the paddle boards before we headed out.

Where We Went

Clearwater Beach Paddle Board Rental 2

I’ve been wanting to paddle board the Intracoastal of Clearwater Beach for a while so I had a plan on where to go before I was on the paddle board. I knew there were some fun islands to visit between Island Estates and Clearwater (mainland Clearwater, not Clearwater Beach). These islands can be seen when looking north when driving across the causeway bridge.

There are a few small islands in this area. I used either Google Maps or Apple Maps to get a visual of what the islands. I looked to see what they were like and which would be easiest to get to on a paddle board. Using the satellite images, I found an island that had small sand beaches and wasn’t too far. My wife and I decided on that island and started mapping out how we would get there.

Paddle Boarding to the Island

We left from the dock attached with Frenchy’s Seafood Company. From the docks, you can see all the boats at the Island Yacht Club directly across the water. We started off heading towards the north side of the Island Yacht Club. Paddling all the way around Island Estates would take a long time, so we planned a shortcut.

This was the part of the trip I wasn’t sure would work, but thankfully it did. We counted three inlets north of Island Yacht Club and paddled into the third inlet. At this inlet, there’s a small bridge that we were able to paddle under. It’s a very small bridge, and it happened to be high tide during our adventure. This made the road really low to the water.  We dropped down onto our stomachs and paddled with our arms like a surfboard to get under the bridge. It was tight! Thankfully it was also short. We were on the other side within a minute to two minutes.

From there, we paddled out past the homes on the other side of Island Estates. When we reached the edges of the Intracoastal waterway. The island we were looking for could easily be seen in the center of the Intracoastal waterway, just a little south of us.

Our paddle board adventure to and from the island can be seen below. The red line is the route we took to get from the paddle board rental dock to the island and back. It is about 1.25 miles from the dock to the island, two and a half miles there and back.

What We Brought

What did we bring with us? Not much! We each had our board, paddle, and life vest provided by the Clearwater Beach paddle board rental company. Nicki and I put sunscreen on right before heading out. We each wore a baseball cap, SPF shirts, and sunglasses. Nicki tossed her phone into a watertight bag to keep it safe. I tossed my GoPro that floats into my pocket. That’s all we headed out with.

Now that I’ve done it once. Next time, I’ll bring a water bottle and extra sunscreen with me. If I plan on staying on the island for a while, I’d add a small snack as well.

Was It Difficult?

Many people have never been paddle boarding and have asked if it was difficult. Paddle boarding is easier than I thought it would be. Paddle boarding to the island wasn’t my first time though. I’m from Missouri and have been paddle boarding on lakes for a couple of years. I had at least a little bit of experience with balancing on the board and knowing how it feels.

When starting out, it’s best to stay on your knees. It’s safer to keep lower to the board and easier to balance. I would always recommend staying on your knees when in shallow water or leaving a dock. Wait to stand up until you are away from docks and in deeper water. This was if you fall, you won’t hit a hard surface and the water will be deep enough to not hit the bottom.

The distance wasn’t too challenging, but it did take a while. It’s very common to have some wind on large water areas and paddling into the wind is more difficult. When we were paddling to the island, we were paddling into the wind. It took us twice as long to get to the island than it did to get back. The trip there was tiring at times with going into the wind. The way back was really enjoyable and smooth.

The day we went paddle boarding, the water was fairly smooth and there weren’t many boats out to leave wakes. This made it easier to stay on the board with relatively smooth water. When a boat would go past us, we’d quickly turn our board and head toward the boat’s wake. When on a paddle board, it’s best to paddle with the front of your board directly into the boat’s wake.

Clearwater Beach Spring Break 2022

,

It’s officially Clearwater Beach Spring Break season! Get ready! Clearwater Beach is about to get busy this weekend! Expect to see the Clearwater Beach area become extra busy on March 11, 2022, through March 20, 2020. The entire Tampa Bay area may become busier during this time because of the local areas’ spring breaks occurring simultaneously. The school systems of Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando, Manatee, and Sarasota counties all have spring break during these dates. Add in the University of South Florida located in Tampa, and that adds up to over 500,000 students, families, and staff in the area on spring break.

Parking can quickly become a hassle with this many visitors. If you’re looking to get around check out the Jolly Trolley which is offering free rides during the Clearwater Beach Spring Break season. Looking for things to do while visiting Clearwater Beach? Check out our events page to see what’s going on in the Tampa Bay area!

Clearwater Beach Souvenirs

Clearwater Beach Souvenirs

When vacationing with us, you may want to bring back a Clearwater Beach souvenir to remember the great trip. Or maybe you’re looking for a gift to surprise family and friends with a fun gift. Here are some great places to buy Clearwater Beach Souvenirs starting with the classic dad comment “Bring me back some sand.”

Clearwater Beach Sand and Shells

Let’s start with the first question, is it legal to bring back sand from Clearwater Beach? I haven’t seen a specific ruling on this, but I believe the answer is no. It is not legal to bring sand back from the beach from the majority of coastal beaches in the United States. With that said, a very small amount of sand and shells is usually not a big deal for tourists to collect. Please check to make sure the shells do not have a live organism in them and aren’t a live organism itself such as starfish and sand dollars. You can also check the Clearwater Beach souvenir shops to find small containers of shells and sand that are already packaged and ready for purchase.

Clearwater Beach Souvenir Shops

Is Clearwater Beach Walkable?

, ,

Is Clearwater Beach Walkable? - Hogan's Hangout

Is Clearwater Beach Walkable? YES! Clearwater Beach is a very walkable beach town with everything you need close by.

When visiting Clearwater Beach you’ll have a variety of options on where to stay that will play a role in how close everything is to you, but no matter where you stay, the island is walkable! When mentioning distances in this article, I’ll be using The Villas of Clearwater Beach and Surfside Condos as the reference point. Both of these fantastic vacation rentals are beachfront condominiums located on North Clearwater Beach. This area of the beach is a quiet, family-friendly area of Clearwater Beach.

Beach Access

You’ll find beach access points almost everywhere on Clearwater Beach. When staying at the condos rented from B&W Management, you’ll have beachfront views and are steps away from touching the soft white sand.

If you’re not staying in a beachfront condo or hotel, don’t worry, the beach is still within walking distance! The most common places to stay are within 3 to 4 (small) blocks from the beach. If you’re staying on south Clearwater Beach in places like Shephard’s Beach Resort, Holiday Inn, or Hampton Inn and Suites; you will have a small beach area nearby, but you’ll have to walk a bit further to get to the public beach area. The public beach is still very walkable at roughly a quarter-mile.

Restaurants

There are delicious restaurants everywhere on Clearwater Beach! Here are some popular restaurants on Clearwater Beach and their walking distance from The Villas of Clearwater Beach. By no means are these the only restaurants around; there are many, many more!

Bars

Enjoy a night out on Clearwater Beach! Below are some of the bars located on Clearwater Beach, but there are many more!

Shopping

You’ll find all kinds of wonderful storefronts to shop at on Clearwater Beach. Many of these storefronts are located on Mandalay Avenue. Another great shopping experience is the popup shops located on Pier 60 every day for the Clearwater Beach sunset festival! You can combine both and walk from Surfside Condos and The Villas of Clearwater Beach down Mandalay Avenue to Pier 60. This walk is only a mile long and will take you past all kinds of storefronts as you head to Pier 60 to enjoy a beautiful sunset, popup shops, live music, and more!

Activities

The number one Clearwater Beach activity is the beach, and that is only steps away! But you might be interested in doing a little more. Here are some other Clearwater Beach Activities and how they are all within a walkable distance.

  • Paddleboarding / Kayaking: You can rent Paddleboard and kayaks from Clearwater Beach Paddleboard Co. and they’ll bring them to you on the beach for lessons! The shop is a short walk away, but you won’t have to worry about carrying the boards and kayaks back to the beach!
  • Jetski Rentals: You can rent jetskis on the beach! Just walk south towards Pier 60 and you’ll come across the rental company directly on the beach before you reach Pier 60 – roughly a half-mile away on the beach. You can also rent jetskis from the Clearwater Marina which is only a mile away.
  • Parasailing: Parasailing may be available from the jetski rental place on the beach (roughly a half-mile away), or you can find parasailing options at The Clearwater Marina as well.
  • Fishing: Enjoy fishing from the end of Pier 60, 1 mile away or fishing tours are available at The Clearwater Marina, also a mile away.
  • Dolphin Tours: Many different dolphin tour excursions are available at The Clearwater Beach Marina.
  • Sailing: Enjoy sailing cruises from the Clearwater Beach Marina as well!
  • Walk to Caladesi Island State Park: Walking to Caladesi Island State Park is possible! It’s a longer walk at roughly 4.5 miles to the far end of Caladesi Island, but it’s very beautiful and fully on the beach! Learn more about Walking from Clearwater Beach to Caladesi Island!

Albino Dolphin Sighting and Clearwater Beach Dolphin Tours

, ,

Clearwater Beach Dolphin Tours

Have you heard the news? A young albino dolphin has been spotted swimming around the Clearwater Beach area! This young albino dolphin is very rare. It is one of only three albino dolphins that have been documented in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Clearwater Beach Aquarium posted on Facebook, “There have been recent sightings of a dolphin calf with atypical white colorization in Clearwater Bay. This animal is a known bottlenose dolphin calf named Cherub. As part of our Wild Dolphin Research Program we have observed the mother, Guardian, since 2013 and estimate that Cherub is less than one year old. The calf has a healed injury resulting in partial loss of one fluke, but otherwise appears in good condition and has displayed normal behavior. CMA will continue to observe this animal through our Photo ID program and monitor reports from our Rescue Team.”

This albino dolphin isn’t the only famous dolphin in Clearwater Beach. You can visit the movie stars, Winter and Hope, at the Clearwater Beach Aquarium! In addition to the famous dolphins, you’ll see many dolphins swimming around the Clearwater area, often playing in the wake of the Clearwater Beach Dolphin Tour boats. These dolphin tours are fun for the whole family. The dolphin tours give you a chance to see dolphins up close and enjoy a beautiful afternoon on the water or even a fun sunset cruise!

Clearwater Beach – Things To Do (other than the 2021 Super Bowl)

Clearwater Beach has a ton of wonderful family-friendly activities. So if football isn’t your thing, don’t worry there’s plenty more to do.

Is Clearwater Beach Dog Friendly?

,

Is Clearwater Beach Dog Friendly? Dog friendly beaches in the Clearwater Beach area.

The question of whether Clearwater Beach is dog friendly or not is often asked. The official answer is a simple no. “Dogs are not allowed on Clearwater Beach.”

…but when you are on the beach, you’ll often see dogs going for walks. Dogs aren’t allowed and we do not condone breaking the rule, but it seems to be enforced more strictly on the south beach side of Clearwater Beach. When you head to the north beachside, you’ll see more dogs. Not a lot of dogs, but in the mornings you’ll see them out for beach walks on leashes.

While it says that dogs are not allowed on Clearwater Beach when you walk further north into the North Clearwater Beach residential area there are signs at the public beach access points that say leashes are required for dogs in that area. Keep in mind, there’s no public beach parking in those areas so it would take a decent walk on the sidewalk with your dog to even get up to the area.

If you’re on vacation in the Clearwater Beach area and have your dog with you, please stay informed of the local dog rules. You can take your dogs with you in many areas as long as it stays on a leash. There’s also a fenced-in dog park at Sand Key Park and a dog-friendly beach area at Honeymoon Island located in Dunedin, Florida.
