Intelligent Sailing Dockage - Tampa Convention Center Marina:

Please call ahead and reserve/pay for the slip.

If you would like to spend a night in downtown Tampa here is the trip for you.

 Upon leaving the Harborage Marina head east across the bay toward the Apollo Beach power plant. Using your Tampa Chart #22 go to way point 8 then to 9. At WP 9 stay on the west side of the shipping channel and head to way point 11. Upon reaching 11 follow the yellow line on the enclosed chart picture and proceed up the Sedon Channel. Upon arriving at the Convention Center basin look to the right and you will see the floating docks. Pick the one you prefer and tie up for the night! They now have shore power as well, so you can stay cool with the A/C,

If you do a little homework as to where you might like to eat out tonight the Ybor City area has a large selection of restaurants as well as a few in Tampa which are within walking distance. To get to Ybor City take the trolley, which is right across the street from where you are docked. If you would like to enjoy a cup of coffee, Starbucks is located in the Westin Hotel across the street from dock. This adventure is approximately 40 nautical miles round trip.


Catch the trolley bus into ybor -- with several great bars and restaurants -- or into Channelside. This is newly developed with a lot to do!
