RE: Marina convenient for Tampa airport
Several options...Clearwater Municipal Marina on Clearwater Beach, there is a Holiday Inn Marina at Indian Rocks Beach just past the Walsingham Bridge and if you go further south there is Madiera Beach Municipal marina. Not sure of what their fees are, but as Clearwater and the Holiday Inn are about 25miles due west of Tampa International. There is a company called Supershuttle that has vans to transport to the airport but they take quite some time, so a cab might be quicker but a bit more expensive. Unfortunately I don't have the phone numbers for these places but they should be in the cruising guides or yellow pages. Hope this helps.
