Boating, Ramps and Marinas – Treasure Island Florida

Getting Around Treasure Island by Boat

Boat Ramps

Treasure Island has three public ramps. These are all pretty small, single-lane ramps with limited or no space for trailer parking.  It may make sense to scope it out ahead of time, but if you’re staying at our TI rentals you’ll want to use the 123rd Ave ramp and you can take the trailer back to the house and return on foot. 

Things can get really busy on weekends, so TI asks that you prepare your boat prior to launch.  Treasure Island also has a small marina with some boat slips for rent. If you just need a slip for a short period they do have metered slips available at an hourly rate. There is a waiting list for the permanent slips. You may contact the recreation department if you’re interested. 727-547-4575. This is located on Boca Ciega Bay next to the City Services Complex on 108th Ave. Be careful if you search the web for information – there is a Treasure Island Marina in Panama City Beach.  Use our link or make sure you have the right one!

Bridges

The Causeway Bridge (pictured above) can open three times per hour during the week and twice an hour on the weekends.

Here is the schedule: 

Monday - Friday - 7 am to 7 pm it opens at the top of the hour, at twenty minutes after the hour and forty minutes after the hour.

Saturday, Sunday and Federal holidays - it opens at 15 minutes after the hour and 45 minutes after the hour (or 15 minutes before...)

You can request a bridge opening by calling the bridgetender on VHF Channel 9.

When closed the bridge has 21 feet of vertical clearance.
