Our Harbour Island location is right in the heart of downtown Tampa (601 S. Harbour Island Blvd). It's right behind American Social and Jackson's restaurants. You can see all the downtown sights right from our docks. WOW!
Harbour Island was originally known as Seddon Island, which was named after W. L. Seddon, chief engineer for the Seaboard Air Line Railway. Although the vision was for the island to become a bustling waterfront with offices, shops and restaurants, its development is fairly recent – housing a phosphate terminal until 1985.
You'll have a front row seat on St. Patty's Day when they turn the river green. You'll see the Christmas Boat Parade up close and personal. And then, there's Gasparilla! There's nothing quite like it - in honor of Jose Gaspar, that original buccaneer, a huge flotilla of boats surrounds the pirate ship as they try to invade Tampa and take the Key of the City from the mayor. Will they succeed this year?
