Explore Florida's Anclote Key

When Anclote River Resort is your home base, all kinds of fun on the water awaits. From a leisurely cruise through quiet mangroves to thrilling deep-sea fishing charters—and everything in between—this is a boater’s dream come true.

Start your journey gently trolling down the Anclote River, located just steps from your cottage or RV site. Explore the calm waters of the river and connected bayous, as gentle manatees bumble by your watercraft to say hello. Or, venture into the Gulf of Mexico to nearby Anclote Key Preserve Park—just a few minutes offshore from the mouth of the Anclote River—where you can look for dolphins, sea turtles and more than 43 species of birds.

For even more wildlife spotting, go on a guided wildlife cruise down the Anclote River, where a tour guide or certified naturalist can spot out dolphins, fish and manatees, all while sharing fascinating facts and information about these majestic creatures.

Hoping to bring home seashells as a souvenir? Hop on a shelling cruise, which will take you out to pristine beaches to hunt for perfectly formed shells. This daytime activity is great for the whole family or even as a date idea with a special someone. For even more romance, go on a two-hour sunset cruise to take in awe-inspiring views while enjoying tropical cocktails.

If your dream is reeling in that trophy catch, don’t miss an excursion on a deep-sea fishing charter. Bring the whole family for a half-day trip, or if serious fishing is on your vacation agenda, opt for a full-day or multi-day offshore trip.

“From a leisurely cruise through quiet mangroves to thrilling deep-sea fishing charters—and everything in between—this is a boater’s dream come true.”

One of Florida’s nicest boat ramps is only steps away—bring your boat, Anclote River Resort has secure on-site trailer parking for use during your stay. Or talk to your Wanderful Concierge Specialist for boat rental details and cruise recommendations.
