We had the best time on the sunset cruise. We learned lots of history. We saw dolphins and many birds. The sunset was gorgeous. We will do this again for sure!

What an awesome way to spend an afternoon!!! Staff are friendly, funny, and very informative. The women gave us a lesson on how shells were made on our way over to the island. So glad we did this.

This was our favorite spot on St Pete. Water was extremely clear, wake was calm, and it was the perfect place to fish, see dolphins, and snorkel near the jetty. Will be back!!!

We love coming and spending a few hours shopping and eating. Paying for parking gets confusing but plenty of people to ask. Get there early

Ehis is a nice little peir that is the starting point for several local expeditions. The Miss Pass-A-Grille starts here for full day and half day fishing trips. This is also the starting point to take the water taxi to Shell Island.

Lots of fun! Had a great time collecting shells and swimming in a beautiful setting. Price was very reasonable and kids loved it. They even provided masks and snorkels and beach umbrellas.

Very low key area. Easy to relax. People very friendly. Had a wonderful boat ride over to Shell Key from there. $25.00 round trip, plus they give you an all day parking hanger for $3.00.

Please direct your questions to the Trip Advisor page for the Miss Pass-A-Grille Deep Sea Fishing boat. They dock at Merry Pier but it would be best to have them answer any questions about their fishing trips. Thank you.
