Island Passage Ferry Service
Our private ferry service transports members from the boat basin to a seven mile beach on Little Gasparilla Island on the Gulf coast.
During high season, our private Ferry boat departs from the Mainland at Placida Harbour boat basin on the hour beginning at 9:00 am. The Ferry departs from the Placida Beach dock on the half hour beginning at 9:30 am.
During the balance of the year the ferry runs "on demand". You must call the Boat Captain ahead of time for transportation at the top of the hour at the Placida Harbour boat basin and from the Little Gasparilla Island at the Placida Beach dock on the half hour.
