How to enjoy life out on the water during Gasparilla Pirate Festival

For everyone wanting to cruise the waters and kick off Gasparilla on their boats, it's important that there is a place for the boats to be docked. As of now, the city of Tampa Parks Department says docking boats by the Tampa Convention Center or anything in the downtown area is not possible because spaces are sold out. A spokesperson from Marjorie Park Marina said boaters tend to anchor off toward the seawall because of the docks being sold out. People who choose to do this with their boats have to make sure they're not blocking anything from where they are in the water. There are still a few different options for people to enjoy the festival on the water without a dock. Consider renting a captain for a couple of hours to drive the boat around while you soak in the afternoon. MORE:
