If you want to get to Egmont Key for the day, this is where you catch the ferry. I have yet to make it to Egmont Key. It's just off shore and has an old fort, snack bar and deserted beaches to explore. According to the brochure the last ferry returning is at three and if you miss it the only recourse is a water taxi. Not that I would want to get stranded on an island, but if I had to spend the night there it probably would not be that bad. I could watch the cruise ships steam in and out of Tampa Bay and maybe watch the stars as I expect there would be fewer lights at night. Before I get myself all worked up about this imaginary adventure, perhaps I should just go see the place first.
