For sun-soaked sands, brilliant turquoise waters, and a burst of history, embark on an adventure aboard the Egmont Key Ferry. Discover this hidden gem nestled in the Tampa Bay Area, Florida, renowned for its pristine landscapes, fascinating wildlife, and a lighthouse that's been standing tall for more than a century. Awash with scenic beauty and naval history, Egmont Key is an unforgettable destination that's waiting for you to explore.

Step aboard the Egmont Key Ferry for a relaxing sail across the glistening waters. Keep your eyes peeled as you glide across the bay; you might catch a glimpse of dolphins frolicking or pelicans diving, adding some natural magic to your journey. The ferry ride, typically lasting around 15-30 minutes depending on weather conditions, will transport you to the unspoiled beauty of Egmont Key State Park. Ensure you've packed comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, and your camera, as the island brims with photogenic views and trails.

As you set foot on the island, you'll feel like you've just set foot in a postcard. With no shops or facilities, the state park encourages visitors to embrace the purity of nature. Meander the shell-laden beaches, venture along the trails where gopher tortoises roam, or dive beneath the surface for a snorkeling session. Explore the fascinating remnants of Fort Dade – a relic from the Spanish-American war – or admire the Egmont Lighthouse that has been guiding ships since 1858.

The Egmont Key has tides of history lapping its shores. Initially claimed by the U.S in 1821, it served as a camping site for captured Seminoles during their removal to the West in the 1850s. Fort Dade was established during the Spanish-American War, transforming the island into a bustling town with brick roads, a hospital, and even a bowling alley. Decades later, Egmont Key serves as a wildlife refuge and harbors the 400-year-old Egmont Lighthouse, making it a compelling ticket for history lovers.
