This public boat ramp facility is owned and operated by the City of Clearwater and offers direct access to the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a sandy beach area off to the right of the boat ramps for canoe and kayak access. From here a number of spoil islands can be explored, along with Caladesi Island. This facility can see large numbers of motorized water craft, especially on the weekends, and a channel crossing is necessary to reach Caladesi Island, so use caution. Parking is available during daylight hours only and may be limited on the weekends because of the high traffic volume at this site. Clearwater Parks Department: (727) 562-4800.
WILL REOPEN February 14th 2011

Note Poster January 6 2011) : Clearwater Beach, Florida - Boaters should be able to resume launching from the north beach boat ramp on Bay Esplanade next month, the city reports.
The ramp is being replaced with concrete that will extend below the water line, and the boarding dock will be moved south to create more launching room, according to the city's Director Engineering Michael Quillen.
"The new configuration will allow for simultaneous launching of two boats, effectively adding a launching lane due to the wider bottom portion of the ramp extending beyond the existing seawalls," Quillen told 10 News.
"The design will withstand the wave forces and scour action and provide a durable ramp that will enhance the safety for the boaters in the area and restore functionality to the project site as a free public launching facility - one that is convenient and accessible to the residents and visitors of Clearwater Beach alike," Quillen reported.
The old ramp had deteriorated to the point where it was considered no longer safe to launch boats without risking damage to boats or vehicles, or injury to people.
The ramp is the only public launching facility to Clearwater Harbor within several miles.
Costs are estimated at $182,000 for both the ramp and additional seawall work.
The project has a scheduled completion date of February 14th.

Three-Rooker Baris a small, semicircular island that has emerged within the last decade. The fact that sand has been accumulating at this location while erosion has occurred at other locations demonstrates the complexity of the coastal processes at work on the West-Central Florida coast. As the island emerged, it quickly became vegetated, increasing its stability.
Three Rooker Bar is not your typical bar because it’s really a small Island or sand bar just of the coast of northern Pinellas. Partying here is the nautical equivalent of tailgating in a parking lot before a football game. Boaters just drop anchor and get crazy. On weekends it’s crowded and loud but the water is Caribbean blue and the sand is white and sugary soft.
This party paradise is accessible only by boat or personal watercraft. The closest ramp is probably Dunedin Marina and Anclote Park. Tip: No glass allowed on the beach. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED
This island is only accessible by private boat and has no facilities. Additionally camping is allowed on the southern tip OUTSIDE of the restricted Bird Habitat which is clearly marked.
Caladesi Island is accessible only by private boat or via the Caladesi Connection ferry service
