Indian Rocks Beach is located off the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway near GIWW Mile Marker 129. Indian Rocks Beach is seven miles southwest of Clearwater and 25 miles west of Tampa.
The image above is a view from the south looking north over Indian Rocks Beach in an area of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) known as The Narrows. The Indian Rocks Bascule Bridge (25-foot closed vertical clearance, opens on signal) can be seen crossing the GIWW route just where The Narrows enters the bay behind Sand Key. Clearwater and the Clearwater Pass Inlet Can be seen off to the north in the distance near the horizon
Use NOAA Chart 11411.
The southern terminus of The Narrows begins at green daybeacon 1 at GIWW Mile 125.5 and works its way north for five miles until it empties into the bay behind the northern portion of Sand Key. Navigation is fairly straightforward (five- to eight-foot depths) and only two opening bridges cross this stretch of water. The first (traveling south to north from Mile Marker 125) is the Park Boulevard Bascule Bridge, which has a 26-foot closed vertical clearance and opens on signal. About three miles farther north, the Indian Rocks Beach Bascule Bridge crosses the route and also opens on signal.
A good handful of marinas is scattered around the Indian Rocks Bascule Bridge and all have a variety of different services. The Largo InterCoastal Marina, Holiday Inn Harbourside and Indian Spring Marina are all located within a half-mile of the bridge and all but one offer transient slips. The Inidian Springs Marina has a 30-ton lift for haul-outs and related repair services.
