About the Caladesi Island Ferry
There are two ways to get to Caladesi: Private boat or take the Caladesi Connection Ferry
service that operates out of Honeymoon Island State Park. To ride the ferry, take Curlew Road (Hwy 586) out of Dunedin and drive west. It will take you across the Dunedin Causeway to Honeymoon Island where you pay an entrance fee. Then follow the signs (a few hundred yards) to the Caladesi Ferry parking area and EXPERIENCE HASSLE FREE PARKING
. Purchase tickets at the ferry booth.
The ferry will take you on a relaxing 15-20 minute ride over the calm waters of St. Joseph Sound to Caladesi Island where you will disembark at the marina next to the cafe on the bay side of the island. Then you will have a 5 minute walk across the island to the beach over paved sidewalks and a wooden dune walkover (boardwalk). Beach wheelchairs are available from the park rangers on a first-come, first-served basis.
Boats are designed to accommodate individuals with disabilities. Boat crew will provide assistance to those who require it.
