The Dunedin Causeway crosses over St. Joseph Sound linking the mainland at US Hwy Alt 19 to Honeymoon Island State Park. The Causeway is a bit over two miles long with two bridges, and beaches on both sides, where anglers can fish from shore or wade out to find their piscatorial prey, small boaters and kayakers can launch their vessels, and families can play in the sun and water. Many of the nicest fish we've seen at Barracuda Bob's have come from the Causeway! Parking is FREE, there's a great bicycle and walking trail, and it's a great spot from which to watch the sunsets.
Open 7 days a week, 365 days per year
new summer hours: march thru october
SUNDAY thru THURSDAY - 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM
FRIDAY and SATURDAY - 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM
This is also the only beach anywhere around where pets are welcome, so dog lovers regularly bring their furry friends here for long walks on the beach and to romp in the clear Gulf waters.
Barracuda Bob's Island Surf & Sports is located just 20 minutes west of Tampa International Airport, ten minutes north
of Clearwater and Clearwater Beach, and ten minutes south of Tarpon Springs and is easy to get to from anywhere!
Pet Beach, located on Hurricane Pass at the southern end of Honeymoon Island, is a popular spot for surf fisherman and waders, and while many species of big game fish of all kinds are regularly caught here year around, it is famous for the big, trophy Snook that gather in the pass every spring and summer to fatten up before heading offshore to spawn.
Divides Honeymoon and Caladesi islands, providing boaters with an instant exit to the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf beaches, and anglers access to the many big game species that cruise the Gulf. The pass also allows fresh, clean Gulf waters to flow into St. Joseph Sound with every incoming tide, offering boaters and shore bound anglers alike excellent opportunities to snag trophy game fish right off the beach. Passenger ferry service links Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands.
Non ethanol gas is available at the Mobile station on the corner of US Alt 19 and Causeway Blvd just up the street.
Dunedin Municipal Marina boat ramp is 2.5 miles south of Barracuda Bob's at 51 Main Street just off downtown Dunedin. The ramp is open 24/7 and there is a $5 launch fee for Dunedin residents or $15 fee for nonresidents.
Small boats, canoes and kayaks can launch for FREE right off the Dunedin Causeway beaches. For larger boats there are two public boat ramps located nearby, and Marker 1 Marina is located just one block east of Barracuda Bob's.
Marker 1 offers transient docks, marine gas and diesel fuel, a ships store and a full suite of vessel maintenance and repairs.
The clear green waters of St. Joseph Sound are an angler's paradise with miles and miles of lush, shallow grass flats, rocky oyster bars, numerous spoil islands, shaded mangrove shorelines and barrier island beaches that are havens for big game fish of all kinds. Whether you're fishing from a boat or kayak, or just want to wade out or fish from shore on one of our many beaches or bridges, this area offers some of the finest saltwater sport fishing on Florida's west coast.
Located on the Dunedin Causeway; gateway to the productive backwaters of St. Joseph Sound, Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands, and the Gulf of Mexico; Barracuda Bob's is your one stop shop for all of your bait, tackle and beach supply needs before heading out for a great day of fishing, boating or just beaching it and relaxing with a cold one.
