Take the South Venice Ferry… to your own private beach...

Located along Lemon Bay (at 4800 Lemon Bay Dr.) near the Alligator Creek estuary, you’ll find 5 acres of public area with a Ferry Terminal, Boat Ramp and Crab Dock. The ferry holds 18 passengers and leaves the dock every half-hour between 9:30am and sunset (except Wednesdays).

You may even see manatees during this four minute ride and dolphins come to the beach almost every day. Unique in its privacy the beach (located on Manasota Key) stretches seven miles providing great shelling, sunning and shark tooth hunting.

Since the ferry is utilized by the community of South Venice, passes for rides are issued by the month @ $35.00 or the year @ $90.00 and can be purchased at the Landing Dock or the Adminstration Office located at 720 Alligator Drive. For more information, visit southvenicebeach.org or call 941-493-0006.

Other amenities at South Venice Park include a public boat ramp and kayak/canoe launch with immediate access to some of the best boating and fishing that south Florida has to offer and Shamrock Park & Nature Center features basketball and tennis courts as well as a one mile hiking trail and playground for the kids.
