Stand Up Paddle board and kayak launch on 19th Street East in Boca Grande Florida The barrier islands that border the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida offer unique views of nature. Water clarity on the serene coastline of Gasparilla Island creates an ideal location for stand-up paddleboarding. This island, home to the town of Boca Grande, offers inshore access to Gasparilla Sound and various public beaches for paddling in the Gulf of Mexico. As with any paddling sport, location is key. Boca Grande Pass, at the southern tip of the island, is actually a very dangerous place for less experienced paddleboarders. The currents in the Pass, which is the main connection between the Gulf and Charlotte Harbor, can be extremely strong. When the current and wind are going in opposite directions, waves 4 to 6 feet high are common.
