The city of Saint Petersburg is located on the West Coast of Florida near the city of Tampa Bay about 90 miles northeast of Punta Gorda. Saint Petersburg and the surrounding Tampa area are extremely popular with boaters, and is a major north-south stopover for people transiting the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). The image above is of an area surrounding the Albert Whitted Municipal Airport where you can find four different marinas with a variety of services for transient guests.
