Passage Key is located between Anna Maria Island and Egmont Key in the mouth of Tampa Bay. Passage Key is beautiful year round and offers some of the clearest water in the area. The surrounding waters are shallow with a clean, white, sandy bottom. This area is great for snorkeling, paddle boarding, and looking for seashells along the shallow waters off the sandbar. Keep in mind Passage Key is a wildlife sanctuary and walking on the shoreline is not permitted.
